How did you get started with your business? How long have you been in business?
Lisa Leonard Designs started as a hobby business. I did home parties around town and sold to local boutiques. When I started blogging, the business began to grow—and once we launched our website things really took off!
What is your favorite thing about being an entrepreneur?
Definitely the flexible schedule it gives me so that I can be with my kiddos. Don’t get me wrong—I work a lot, but I can choose when I work, and that is such a blessing!
Where are you located? What’s your favorite thing about the city you live in?
We’re in San Luis Obispo, CA. We are close to the beach which is amazing. There are hiking trails right behind our house. And the downtown area is full of adorable boutiques and thrift shops. Pretty much the perfect place to live!
What inspires you?
I get inspired by other creative people, the sunshine, a good book and time alone. I love to let ideas swirl around in my head and then see them come to fruition with a new design.
What goodies are on your wish list?
Right now I’m scouring thrift stores for old Persian rugs and funky oil paintings. I’m addicted to thrifting!
