    Don't Forget to Tell Yourself That You Are Proud of You

    Happy, Merry Everything! We have missed you during our unplanned but much-needed hiatus as we adjusted to new life roles this year, but not to worry we will be back in full force in 2023! We hope you enjoy this treat of an episode with Corrine Counts, the stylish curator behind @Frederick.Homefinds on Instagram. 
    We really enjoyed hearing how she found this passion of hers and ran with it. She also shares how she manages a full-time job and her popular furniture business and how she utilized the power of Instagram and her local community to grow Frederick Homefinds into what it is today. 
    We'd love to know what your thoughts are too about this conversation. Come and chat with us and Corrine over on Instagram @themustachemesa and @frederick.homefinds.
    Thank you to Listen Frederick for continuing to give this podcast a home.

    Pour It, Melt It, Mix It with Amira Chappelle Brooks of Chappelle Candle Co.

    This episode features our conversation with Amira Chappelle Brooks of Chappelle Candle Co. Starting a business is never easy, but starting one during a global pandemic is on a whole other level.
    Amira shares how she followed her intuition to take candle making from hobby to business and what it's been like to go from web-based to brick and morter. 
    We loved getting to learn more about the production of candles and Amira's creative process too. 
    Be sure to check out Amira's beautiful candles and candle vessels on the Chappelle Candle Co.'s website, on Instagram or at the shop located at 25 E Patrick St Lower Level, Frederick, MD. 
    Thank you to Listen Frederick for their support of this podcast.

Leaves you with a smile!

I’ve never laughed out loud and have agreed so strongly on podcast topics as you two have covered. I feel like we’re best friends that have never met. I’ve been listening to this on my walks during quarantine and it’s been nice to hear how we all relate. Thanks for a great podcast!

I really enjoy this podcast because these ladies leave you feeling super empowered and like you can change the world. Or, at the very least, be a better version of yourself. I love how they highlight local women kicking ass and tell their stories! It’s just a feel-good kind of show!
