Words of Wisdom

Networking with other artists and makers is so important to finding your creative tribe. When you find them, the experience, creativity and joy that the right people will breathe into your life and work is absolutely invaluable – especially as a small business owner.

BECCA WINKERT

WizardsXTRA Director

Mantra

My mantra in my personal and professional life is the “5 by 5 rule.” If it won’t matter five years from now, don’t spend more than five minutes worrying about it.

Words of Wisdom

I would encourage women in this field to continue to support each other. There is room for all of us at the table, and we all can win. Learn more about Winkert and WizardsXTRA at www.wizardsxtra.com and follow @wizardsxtra on Instagram.

HANNAH WOLFMAN-ARENT

Sonny’s Pizza Daytime Manager + Baking Instructor

Mantra

Joy comes in the morning.

Words of Wisdom

When I’ve felt stagnant or unfulfilled by the daily grind of the restaurant world, I’ve asked if I can create new projects outside of my assigned job duties. Those projects are how I’ve regained a sense of self: getting in touch with all of my skills, leading, living out my values, taking risks. As long as you’ll be fairly compensated for any work you’re doing outside of your regular tasks, I recommend asking for what you want and going for it.
