SUNDAY STORIES by Lisa Haukom 4.16.23 Weekly lifestyle Roundup
Sunday Stories is back after a brief, but lovely hiatus!
We decided to step back allowing space to intentionally review our big vision for the Goldenbrand, incorporate your recent feedback from our survey, and set plans in motion for some big moves in the pipeline. Excited to share it all with you here first!
SCROLL DOWN FOR THIS WEEK'S GOODIES
Meet Kristina Lacson McConnico designer of capsule clothing brand Lacson Ravello.
Kristina won my heart and support with her Fall 2022 season photoshoot dedicated to addressing age diversity in fashion campaigns. After working for large retailers such as Gap Inc., Bebe, and Target Corporation Kristina launched Lacson Ravello, a thoughtfully designed capsule clothing collection based in Oakland, CA. Kristina's designs are for the "confident and stylish Gen-X woman who refuses to let age define her. She believes "these are women in their 40s and 50s who are shaking things up, rewriting the rules, and creating their path through mid-life." They don't believe in quietly slipping into middle age. Kristina agrees. I know you'll enjoy this conversation with her as much as I did!

With their focus on self care and conscious living The Good Trade felt like the perfect platform for my self-portrait journey. I am beyond honored to have my article featured on their website. Would love to hear your thoughts. Read more below —>
Let's face it. You're going to scroll and social media, at the end of the day, is not the real enemy here. The way you interact with it is. I'm sharing my tricks to consume as a creator (not a consumer), make the scroll work for you, and hone your eye, while feeding your inspiration and creativity to get more of the good stuff — without falling into comparison and overwhelm.

Listen in on my conversation with Ravel Radio host Cara Steinmann where we discuss everything from self-portraits to personal branding and how women can support one another.
During my time away I finally implemented a CRM - why didn't I do this sooner? I'm finally feeling organized and to-do list free.

Q. I've been trying to find time to join the Self Portrait Studio but am at work during the weekly 9am Thursday calls. Is there another way for me to learn self portraits?
A. Yes! This was one of the most requested items in our recent survey. It seems many of you would jump into the 8-week challenge with both feet if you could commit to the weekly calls. The good news we now have two options for you.
First, members who can't make the live calls still greatly benefit from the community and individual feedback within the Mighty Networks SPS community. We encourage you to share your photos with the group, where everyone can comment and support you.
The second option is for those of you who would like to super-speed your self-portrait journey on your timeline. The Self Portrait Studio Course is now available as a stand-alone option in our online shop. Inside you'll find a series of video modules, worksheets, creativity-boosting resources, process videos, and more!
