I wasjust perusing facebook and she on like a local neighborhood site. She hadposted just kind of a callout, and this is before the whole Cori thing: Tbatsort of a call out M to people to support local businesses, and so Imessaged her. I was like. Oh I'm interviewing entrepreneurs. Would yoube interested and she was, and so it was really fun to do this interviewwith someone I hadn't met yet kind of loved it and she's Great. So I'mexcited to share this interview with you guys, but yeah. It's right when we did. Theinterview was right when the CORRONA virus was just starting to be a thinglike we were sort of aware of it and it was starting to, but there were no stayat home orders. Yet here at least so yeah things have changed a little bitUm, but I don't know whe, I'm going with that.Yeah! That's all right! You don't have to know where you're going. Let's start the interview show Erit es.Do ITI wd like to introduce katlan...

...flake to the PODCAST htlan? Yes, we we always like to beginepisodes with an awkwardly personal question before we know anything aboutyou. I would like to know what is the grossest thing that you have ever eatenlate at night? Oh Man, so in the I grew up in a smalltown in southern Arizona and H, there was just one of those little rundowngross Mexican restaurants and they had- and they were the only thing in townthat was open, twenty four hours and so of course, when you're in high schooland college, in a small town, you're up at midnight and two o'clock in themorning wanting to eat food. So we would go to this little restaurant andthey had this thing called superfries and I'm pretty sure they just put friesdown and then whatever random crat wasl like left on the counters or whateverthey would just stickit on top of it and in the middle of the night it wasso good, but non for days. I it was not good, it wouldn't feel so great to like I loved it in the moment. BusYeah, there's th, there's a place near us that has they're called loaded,Buffalo, FRIS and they're so delicious. It's like fries with Buffalo Chickenand buffalo sauce, and I don't know blue cheese shrunks or something, andit's Oh good, but then immediately after like minutes after I'm like Oh,that was a horrible idea. I can't even imagine I that EAM Shyea Itas bad istat. Okay, so kalen introduce yourself Um.Just briefly tell us like your name where you live Um, and then I am goingto make some assumptions about you Um. So just t you know you R, your name inwhere you live now: okay, Um catlym flake. I live in snowflake Arizona,which is just it near like Sholo like northeastern Arizona. Okay, so I'mgoing to assume that you were born in Chicago O Rup in southern Dar clouds, ewre bornin Chicago and then moved shortly thereafter to southern Arizona. Wi justflew out just to had reading the hospital and then flew back whojustwanted to have a more interesting city on your birthday, yeah perpas. I was born in Masa, okayGotcha and then you guys moved to Sou Marizona. It was reany. Well, my m. my mom lived in southern Arizonabut UM. The D like the doctor that she really liked was in Mesis, so reallylikewe just went Tomesa and then because Ho wanted a cooler city on yourBirthar evant. I guess I wantit to be like the COL kids Rightma. I ca aby. Iknow. Okay, I'm I'm going to say that youhave one brother and two sisters. You...

...are O. I have one brother and onesister, O so close. I athes right WBET. I do get Closeoka your high schoolmascot was a Rhinoceros Hatuld, be the best right. Why are nohigh school? Mascots are reinotress like we have so many wild cats. Why arethere no right, OSP, Wi e wildcaps, too many witpets, no ifoogerses, Eagleswilbirds and wid cats? There should be some rhinos theyre.Probably there probably are somewhere like the red, Redmond Rinos orsomething, but nobody that I personally know it's a really good mask o thatI've never heard of that or lie should be hipos like yes, the I awesomeHarrisburg Hippos, we be thumb somewhere, Somebodyi'll get that race,okay, first job. Let's say I must see your first job was a hostess at Dennyse. No, we didn't even get a denny's in mytown till I was like in College O. I still don't have a dennys in myhometown, supe small tel. I was a violen teacher, idoing, thosejobs nice. How old were you hat's, a great job or a young person likeforteen? I played the violin in church one Sunday and a lady asked me if I hadteach your kids and Iwas like yeah Seeno Yous, like I've, had two lessons.But yes, let's declaets, that's a great first job. Did you continue teachingviolin? After as I did, I continued teaching violin up until we adopted ourkids ago Til. I was well into Mae adult years. Please, but you don't teach now. No, no ideo, not because everyoneelse's kids are home at the same time that my kids are home. Yes, exactlymore difficult, yes, okay! Well, let's get into it! Um Tell us a little moreabout you, um we're going to talk about a businessthat you started and so, first of all, Um have you always been interested inentreprenership, or did it just sort of happen? MNO I really have always been. I waslike the lemonade Stan Kid Um. I always was doing little things. I dida few like direct sales. They knees for a little bit and then I just like youknow. I think I know enough that I can probably do this on my own soand. Thenwhat was your? How did Your Business Start like? How did you first get theidea? So for a long time I sold for a bigdirectel clothing company. That was really popular a couple of years ago,and then I decided to get out of that. But I live in a town where, likeWalmart, like that, that's all entil you go yeah, so there were no likeclothing options here. So I decided to Ju to start a business and sellclothing and then that just kind of...

...exploded- I just was selling out of aroom in my house for a long time, and then I decided I wanted a storefront,but I didn't want to have to pay the REP by myself. So I rented out space toa bunch of crafty vendor like crafty friend, who wanted to sell their set soand did they was it like just Saturday mornings? They were there or did theyhave the space full time as well yeah they would rent the space. So it wasKindo like a consignment store almost they would they rentless space for meand I, like would do all the Posti all the advertising for them and and stufflike that, so it kind o gave them like a they didn't have to be there. We werewe're open all the time, so it gave them just like a place to gettheir cool stuff out there. I love like talented people, but people who canmake things are my favorites. So yes and then getting everything thatthey're making available somewhere where PSS IT in Kanpya. I fe Li, likelike people, sell a lot on Essy, but, like everybody Sol on Etty, you knowit's really icolate, there's so much on on TN. People really want to supportlike their local, artisans and makers and stuff, and so I thought it would.It was a really cool opportunity for local people to buy local made stuff.So how formal was your process? Did you rate a business plan when you started so I had a friend who did the samething in another town, so I kind of adopted her business plan Um and I really just wanted to do it. My husband is morelike that he's like the quick books, Guy n and that stuff. So I just as like,let's just Al, get together and do a store you know. So I did. I have like a contract. Ifeel like my business plant as probably the contracts that I had for thevendors Um. So I mean I probably wasn't as great as I should have been in thatassect, but I had a vision and I knew what I was doing. You know what I mean:Yeso written lawyer, Seng, Baa, yeah and M, so who who is involved now? Iknow your sister is you'd mentioned your sisteris sort of heading things.Now what was the process in transferring that? Well, I haven't done all like the legalstuff. Yet, but really she came to work for me a few months ago, and then Imean I have four kids I was. I just was spending so much time at the shop and IH my kids are all adopted through the foster system, so they kindof have someextra needs and they kind of need me around a little more. You know so I just I. I asked herto come up and work for me and then eventually I I just was like hey howabout you just like take this thing over and so I'm alittle bit involved. Still I rent out a booth fromher now and I just you know I kind of...

...help her with stuff just this is when Ipostd on social media. This is when I pai the taxes like I, I still kind ohelp her out a little bit, but for them ost part she's, doing an awesome job,so the storefront is located in Snowflake, Great Wen alocated. I Taylor,which is connected nearly Okagocha and what is the what's the name of thebusiness or the place where everyone can come to see all of the businesseshows. Where is it, and how does that work? It's called Blue Pond Boutiqueand it's just it's one. We have one location and then it's like split upinto little boots, and so people can just walk around to all the booths,we're on instagram and facebook and twitter as Bluepondeti. She justactually because of all this corona virus craziness. She just startedshipping. So that's going to be a really cool thing for her Um, so yeahGod ye. So we're recording this m a few weeks in evant. He probably won't postit for a little while and we are right in the height of social distancingright at the beginning of Corona Varus, at least in Arizona, and so it will beinteresting to see what it's like. When we post this episode right Casnga, Ireally ho OA. It might be a lot worse, we might be through it we'll see, butright now, thereyou're, probably people aren't really aren't being encouragedto go to stores. So has she closed for business hours? Like people can't comethere? Just things have to be shipped. She has been really creative she'sdoing like a thing where you can order, just like through instrogram orwhatever, just tm her an order, and then she ha she still is employing her.The employees that are there and they just will run it out to you, runwhatever Thi. So she like Lui, video, yeah she's, doing like live videos, sothat she can show everything that's new in the shop and then people just driveup with like curbeside delivery. So I thought that was really smart and thenshe started shipping too. So Sha. That is really smart 'cause. I know a lot ofpeople are concerned like what is going to happen to the economy. If allbusinesses, except for t essential services, have to shut down, how do allof these stores survive? How do people survive, and that is a great idea ofone way to try and circumvent that and tryand and keep things going asmuch as possible and try to keep people employed like that's matt totally. Ithink these little small businesses are the ones that are going to get hit thehardest. You know so H. I know I was reading, someone was mentionin orrecommending or like. Even if you don't want to get takeout from restaurants,you could buy gift cards now, planning to use them later. When you can visitthe restaurant, which is also a great idea by gifthards online for any shopthat might need the help right now, and you know we're going to get throughthis and then we would be able to use it after so yeah. I love it. You knowright definitely, definitely ways that we can help, keep things going for sure.So what what was the best thing um about starting a company, so the best thing for me was connectionand meeting people. I I mean I'm...

...relatively new to the town that we livein now to snow flake. AH, three years relatively, I don't think that's reallynew, but Um, but so I didn't know like a ton ofpeople here. Yet so, but everyone like if a new business comes in te town,everybody is there. So I got to me a lot of really cool people throughthrough the business and also M, I loved having the wholeseller license sothat if I just saw something I liked I could be like. Oh I'm going to get thatfor oh you'R, not like anything. I like I'm like Oh, okay, yeah, the reason Imet you and reached out to you. You know this, but for our listeners youposted on a faceboot group, just sort of a post encouraging people to bylocal, like don't Muy everything on Amazon, don't buy everything at Walmartlike visit, your the local butiques and shops by local. Has this been somethingthat you have been um encouraging? Throughout the whole, you know thewhole time through this process, or is that fairly new? No yes, I I I mean, like I said before,I love supporting makers and artisans, and if I can support a person and not ahuge corporation, I'm totally going to do that. I've kind of always been thatway. So I just think everyone can use their reminder sometimes because youknow like Walmar and Amazon are so easy, but they don't need our money. It's Rit,Anit's taking over the convenience, is hard to pass up, but it's true. Wethere's so much we miss out on. If we're not able to recognize and Um, you know C and purchase handmade goodsand things that people are making that are so creative and interesting andunique. Definitely your throw! I love that m what about? What's the worstthing about starting a business? What have you found? I think the worst thing is you can't make everybody happy, there'salways going to be someone that doesn't like the way that you're doing things and it's hard to find information for,like licensing and all the legal stuff that you're supposed to do. It's reallyhi hard to find the information out there for that, so that I think that was the hardest tcomplicated process yeah, especially when I naded to be in there doing whatyou want to do and then you're dealing with all the paperwork and all theseother things. This is not yeah exactly and what about so. You had kidsat home when you first started the business. Had you adopted any kids yetor was that all after m we had all of our kids Oky when yeah when I startedthe business and that really was kind o. Why I started because I went from being.I was a teacher before we adopted the kids, so I went fom like a super social environment like I wasalways around other people, and then we got our kids, and I really just likedidn't leave my little kingdom. I think it's so easy to just get secked intoall the things I need to do at home,...

...and you never see anybody anymore Um,and so that was kind of why I started the business so that I could I ha. Icould have something for me and still kind of have some kind of a social life.You know I' still got to talk to people and serve other people. So definitely II think every mom out there. This is resonating right because there's yes,there's so much value in being amomat home but like to be meeting New Peopleand having other outletses can be so helpful and it depends a lot ondifferent personalities too right. Some of US really need to work and need youknow the other outlets and some don't so. It's very much case by case rightam not for sure yeah, I'm curious. Have you had any experiences where peoplewere either extremely supportive of you, starting a business with kids at homeor the opposite? I mean you're going to have haters, nomatter what you do. My husband has always been very supportive of reallyanything that I want to do. He really understands that that I need my thing.You know yeah Um Um, I feel like you know. There are always people I meanlike you ere just talking about some people are just totally happy to justbe at home and do all the home things, and I think they just don't understandthat need to do something outside of the home. Sometimes so I did have somepeople just say just little. I neen little remarks like well. Don't ignoreyour kids or make sure that the babysitter's not raising your kit. Youknow just little o like that, but I got it thanks. Tin, Orly, anput, yeah yeahyou just take those kind of thingsot the graines Al Anja. I GTO do what's right for me and my family and thatmight not be a trry for everybody's family sof right for sure wellas. Youknow our POGGASS is called accidental parenting and we talk about the windsand fails of parenting as we all figure it out as we go along and we're. Youknow we're now trying to talk to MOMS whove, started businesses and see youknow kind of like how's, that working are there more winds or fails or both?Can you share a recent win or fail that you have experienced as apparent? Well, I mean related to business, I'mnot doing the shop so much anymore, but I havestarted life coaching and my kids are really like into it. They ask me allthese questions about it and I just think that's so cool when your kids canbe like proud of something that you're doing and interested in something thatyou're doing. So that has been a really cool thing and it's something that Ican bring them into with me. They loved they loved coming to the shop with meand stuff, and that was really cool to spend that time with them. I think anytime that you can involve your family in something and make it a familyeffort that that's like the Best Y. AH, no for sure I I kind of love that- andI love that you can really tell your...

...entrepreneur spirit, because even whenyou're sort of passing the reins to your sister for that you're, like n nowI will start a business as a life coach. I know it's ridiculs like in yournature. I know I always tell people that I have business adhd Asus. What I do like I do a thing for alittle bit and I'm like wellthat's, not fun anymore time, O meve on e', be oneto this, pass that to someone who Bo something I can see. You be you're moreof a business starter. You know, and some people maybe will want to staywith one and see it to the end and grow it and grow it, and whereas you canpass that along to someone else very happily and then move on and start anew thing which is, I saw, I thought that it would be so hard to pe 'cause.You know this. It was my baby, like the blue. Ponbutique was named after a pondthat I swam in when I was a kid and like I built these Relationsirelationships with these vendors and all this stuff, I thought it would bereally hard to pass it on, but I really was just excited to give her a fullyform business, and I was just like all right. You Sou Gooby, like I yeah well, I kind of if you arewilling, I would love to talk about the m financial aspect of that for a minutlike first of all, is the business Um. You know doing well successful likewhen you passed it along to her. Was it making money yeah we haven't ever had amonth in the red. I think, because the way the businesses set up Um, it's wrenting out, other spaces isprobably aexactly like. I I made sure that there, the vender's rent would paymy rent pretty much so that that makes it a whole lot easier to kind of stayafloat in in a small town and probablyeverywhere, for a business like this. We don't really have any necessitieslike there's nothing there that you have to have. You know what I mean soum, it's kind of it's kind, O tricky. You have to do a lot of advertising andstuff just keep reminding people that we're there Um yeah it's been. Therewere a couple of months where I chose to put the money back into the businessinstead of paying myself, but really it's done really well and it'sinteresting because we have some months that are just like amazing through theroote and summonts that aren't, and sometimes it's hard to gauge what thoseMons are going to be. The business is only a couple of years old, so Um, youknow, as time goes on, we'll be able to kind of pinpaint. What's going on andprepare for those months Butyah, but overall, it really has been. I've beenreally pleasantly surprised, yeah, no, that SOM and then, when you went to tosell your business to your sister or pass it along to her that definitelywould be affected where it's a family member. You know. If it's someone youdon't know, it would be a very different, more formal situation, whereyou're selling a business. How was it different where it was a family member? I wouldn't have been as imvolved had itbeen outside like a stranger or somebody outside of it Melly for her. II think she's my younger sister, so I...

...think that I'm a little more like howabout trying this. You know I I'm more involved tha than I would have been,and it's easier for me to tell her well like I've done this for a long time. Soit's Easyer for me to tell her like maybe try this thing and see thatworks,to give her y offer your consulting services as she taking the Anvice well,er, Ke, onsit or not sh yeah. I think somethings. Sheunderstands that this is a thing that I've done for a long time, so I thinkthat she kind of she. She tries the things that I sayand farly. She needs to figure out her own thing too. What work for me may notwork for her Um Yeah. Now that makes sense. Well, I I'mexcited. I want to come up to snowflake an US make a special troop up there.Just Sein Blue Pon e teeto, ther, O much. I Cun have yefor sure or rightnow you know I can have something shipped EA little while before I beblanywhere, okay, so Catlin.
