“The Future is Female”

February 2022 Contents Volume 21, Issue 2

About the Cover Artist: Kathy Womack’s inspiration for the Women and Wine series was not originally with the intent to capture girlfriends in fits of laughter, enjoying the said company. She explained, “As an artist, I am drawn to the dramatic or emotionally provocative imagery, so I think I was trying to capture the emotion of the moment. We cherish our friendships, so the nature of that is pretty relatable to most women and obviously had broad appeal.” After working in advertising for a decade as a fashion illustrator, she craved freedom from the nine to five and looked to a different outlet. She picked up her brushes and never looked back. She still refers to herself as an illustrator, rather than a painter though. This series has allowed her to open two successful galleries in Austin and Houston. Though they had to shut down during the pandemic, she plans on reopening in the future. All of her work (original paintings, limited editions, etc.) is still available on and her sketch site,

February 2022 Events

from the Editor Who are we as women if we do not support other women? No matter what their hopes and dreams may be, I am proud and honored to know all of the females who surround me. I have gal-pals who are managers, lawyers, beauticians, teachers, accountants, real estate agents, personal care aids, nurses, soon-to-be doctors, some who work for start-up companies, many who own their own creative businesses, and a few who are still in the beautiful process of figuring it out – and that’s okay. Regardless, they all know that they have my unconditional support because that is what we do as women; we build each other up! “It’s not a race, it’s a movement” is a saying that I constantly remind myself and other women because another woman’s success is not something to be jealous of. Another women’s success should provide inspiration and helpful tools for others as they are paving the way for many generations of women to come. We are not in competition with one another, we are a team. Another concept that many women have to understand when it comes to climbing the ladder is how to best create a work-life balance and that balance looks different for everyone. Investing in yourself plays a role in this as well. It is just as important to invest in yourself when it comes to the actual business and money moves you are making as it is to keep up with investing in your personal needs, which ultimately fuel and inspire your creative juices for the business side. Burn out is real, and balance is a key ingredient to being your best self. In this February 2022 “The Future is Female” issue, be sure to check out our Women-Owned Business Guide which highlights many of our local women in power who are here to empower all the wonderful ladies reading our magazine.

The WWF Saved Me by Glenda Ferguson

I didn’t grow up with sisters or even close girlfriends. So, establishing close relationships with other women was not something that came naturally to me. But I was raised by an independent woman, my mom. Having her as a role model helped me when I landed my dream job as an elementary reading teacher. I admitted to Mom that I still had misgivings about the position because I was to be in charge of six women assistants who had been at the school for numerous years. Before officially beginning my job, Moyne, the experienced and kind school secretary, welcomed me and took charge. She personally introduced me to each teacher. Within thirty minutes, I realized Moyne was a strong woman and an important ally. I confided in her that one of my soon-to-be assistants informed me that I should not have taken this job. Moyne told me to ignore those negative comments and focus on the students. The principal showed me the reading room and my desk, right in the center of all the teaching assistants. Our space also served as a storage area. In the corner were stacks of old textbooks, outdated equipment, and discarded furniture. This was not a positive environment for our students or me. All the women agreed it was an eyesore, but according to them, getting rid of it was impossible because they had tried. I met with Judy, a veteran teacher who supported my hiring. Following her wise advice, I recommended to the principal that the room needed to be cleared of the clutter. Within two days, the custodians removed all of it. I felt as if I had moved a mountain. The first few months as the new leader were not perfect. Let’s just say, I didn’t do well at on-the-job training. Yes, I signed a contract proclaiming to be the one in charge of managing the reading program, but unfortunately, no one else had gotten the memo. On the outside, I appeared confident. At home, my dream job had turned me into a sobbing, stressed-out mess. I was so wrapped up in scheduling tutoring sessions, planning meaningful lessons for our most needy students, and organizing paperwork that I didn’t establish rapport with everyone. I certainly didn’t understand the group

dynamics of six women who never had a supervisor before. I just chose to ignore the negative attitudes and forged ahead, making progress with the students. While I went about my daily schedule, I discovered a select group of women teachers was supporting me. At every opportunity, they let the principal know I was benefitting the students with my new program. At Christmas, they invited me to their after-school party. But I was to keep the details confidential from anyone else on the staff. That was my introduction to the Wild Women Friends (WWF). The camaraderie between women was unfamiliar to me. But the shared laughter was not. Needless to say, I savored every moment of being a part of such a positive group. They renewed my passion for my job and made me mentally strong. We got together several more times during the rest of the year. What a blessing to have those friends to lean on! For the rest of the school year, I kept a handmade WWF sign by my desk. Only a select group of us knew the true meaning behind those letters. My students certainly did not. Because, at the end of the school year, one of my students told me how cool it was that I liked the World Wrestling Federation. My job lasted ten more years. I persevered in my role through a revolving door of administrators, but Moyne was always there along with a core group of assistants that stayed to celebrate notable victories. As far as the WWF, we’re still going strong by supporting one another and adding others who need saving.

Gets Personal with

Lauren Riddei & Susan Seagroves: Thrill of the Hunt Producers

Lauren Riddei, owner of “LouLou Interiors,” pursued a career in design after her wedding in 2017 when she realized how much fun she had decorating the venue. She explored design classes, gained experience in an internship, found a brilliant mentor (Susan), and one year later, had her very first interior design client. Lauren enjoys the architectural and finish selection process that comes with new builds and custom renovations. Her signature style is modern yet soulful and has a collected aesthetic about it. Lauren believes that the most successful projects are the collaborations between designer and client. She explained, “I enjoy coaching clients into taking risks, affirming their ideas yet elevating them. My mission is to bring clients into the creative process so that each design reflects their lifestyle, personality, and unique journey.”

Susan Seagroves, owner of “Interiors and Exteriors,” pursued a career in design because she found inspiration everywhere. Thirty years ago, she renovated a 1960s estate with no prior experience. The process was enjoyable, and her style and taste were well received by family and friends. Design became her passion, and her business was born. She is self-taught by experience and travel and is a very detail-oriented person. Her visions create a mood in harmony with people’s lives and memories. Susan believes that design is a balance of objects in proportion and scale with a clean eye on function. She explained, “the details of pattern, texture, and color are what make a space fun and talked about. I like to shape the whole experience: The architecture, the grounds, the interior, the lighting. My home is my story, as yours can be also!”

Why did y’all start the Thrill of the Hunt together?

“The Habitat of Humanity executive director, Jason Greene, gave us a platform to build awareness about the ReStore. With our shared love of found objects, reimaging spaces, and a desire to give back to our community, the Thrill of the Hunt was born. We are looking forward to the exposure Sasee will give our platform for Habitat and the ReStore in 2022.”

What is the mission/vision of this collaboration?

“Most people would walk by 90% of the items we write about in our monthly digest. Our mission is to celebrate the unexpected! We highlight interesting design details and show others how to turn recycled discards into fabulous statements. Our collaborations are fun, spirited, and hopefully inspiring for our audience.”

How do you find a good work-life balance?

“Work-life balance is simple; Pace yourself and do not over commit. Projects lose joy when you have too many on your plate. Be very present and on task while working but also schedule in hours of quiet, music, reading, exercise, and nature. Harmony of mind is just as important as a paycheck.”

What advice do you have for another woman hoping to start her own business?

“Just be you and own it! No need to compare yourself to others. You are special, one of a kind, and on your own unique journey. Enjoy the process!”

Every Woman Needs a Hero by Georgia A. Hubley

I remember when there was a double standard for men and women’s fashion. But women have won that battle… I grew up in an era when there was a forbidden fashion list for female students: No trousers, slacks, pants, capris or jeans. This was the 1950s, a time when women only wore dresses or skirts. How frustrated my female classmates and I were because we had to abide by such strict rules, while a breakthrough in fashion was happening elsewhere. Tailored slacks and capri pants were stylish and in fashion for women. I can still see my mom admiring photos of the actress, Katharine Hepburn wearing trousers in public. My mom, too, longed to wear pants, but no one wore them where we lived. Then during the late 1950s and early 1960s, jeans were also the rage for both women and men, mainly due to James Dean and Marlon Brando popularizing them on movie screens and in fan magazines. When I entered high school, the silent pants rebellion had begun. During that time, I soon discovered I had a hero, my Home Economics teacher. When I entered the Home Economics classroom for the first time, I was amazed the room was divided into two sections. On the right side of the room were two long brown wooden rectangular tables and chairs in lieu of desks, facing a large blackboard and flanked by two cork bulletin boards, and lining the back wall was the teacher’s desk, an oblong wall mirror, and two sewing machines with matching benches. On the left side of the room were two small modern kitchens set-up for teaching cooking and baking.

14 :: :: February 2022

Once we were seated at the tables, a smiling face greeted us, “Hello class, my name is Mrs. B. Welcome to Home Ec.,” she said as she passed out textbooks and flyers listing upcoming assignments and projects. The class entailed the life skills for becoming homemakers, how to set the table correctly, fundamentals of how to cook, preparing meals, and sewing for the family and the home. While Mrs. B proceeded with the introduction to Home Ec., I admired her style. She wore black leather high heeled shoes, black dangle earrings that matched three chunky black bangle bracelets in vogue at the time, a white silk short sleeved blouse, and a light gray pencil slim mid-calf length skirt. However, the skirt was different than any skirt I’d ever seen. There was no zipper closure in the back or on the side of the skirt, it fastened in the front. Mrs. B concluded the Home Ec. presentation with a personal anecdote about the special pencil skirt she was wearing. “It was a college project. I designed the pattern and made the skirt from a pair of my father’s pleated herringbone tweed trousers. Check out this hidden front zipper placket,” she said proudly, “I received an ‘A’ for the assignment.” I marveled at her cleverness and creativity, what sweet revenge, Mrs. B was wearing trousers, and no one was the wiser. In my senior year, our class presented a three-act comedy called, “Shoot the Works” during the coldest time of year, mid-March. Play rehearsals were held from February through mid-March. The school furnace was no match for the bitter cold on the stage and the rehearsal area. Rehearsal attire for female students:

heavy coats, gloves, hats, heavy socks, shoes or boots. Rehearsal attire for male students was the same, with one exception...they were allowed to wear jeans. My female classmates and I pleaded to be able to wear jeans to keep our legs warm, but the pleas fell on deaf ears. Suddenly, Mrs. B came to our rescue. She helped put all objections aside, and a compromise was made. In lieu of jeans for female students, corduroy pants were added to our dress code for after school activities. How I loved my gray corduroy pants, they kept me warm and I was stylish. There was no looking back…thanks to Mrs. B, the pants rebellion was over, and pants prevailed. Granted, this was a small victory during my youth, but it was just the beginning. Every woman needs a hero like Mrs. B.

Jessica Hughes • Pink & Red Jessica believes that starting a business is ultimately a leap of faith that you have something to share with the world around you. She explained her advice: “You must remember that comparison is the thief of joy, and that you should never compare your beginning to someone else’s ‘middle.’ Taking pleasure in the successes of others serves as inspiration to continue to do all you can to meet your own goals. If you truly believe in the mission of what you are trying to achieve, you can find encouragement in the progress you’re able to make each day.” Pink & Red • Myrtle Beach • 843-839-3571

Monica Vogel • Bleu Throughout the years, Monica has worked alongside so many talented women business owners. “They are the risk-takers, those women whose passion for something was the drive they needed to leave careers, risk it all, and do it themselves! They are tireless in their work ethic and fearless in their beliefs that they will be successful. Bakers, florists, shopkeepers, chefs…the types of businesses are endless, but the drive is always the same!” Monica continued, “Women ask me all the time for advice on how to get started, how difficult it is, and whether or not they should open their own business, etc. After twenty-five years of owning a boutique, my answer is always the same…it just takes a leap of faith!” Bleu • Sunset Beach, NC • 910-579-5628

KC Hall • This & That Helping others in many different ways is KC’s passion. For her, that includes doing fundraisers for local organizations, sitting on the board of a local nonprofit, or using the store locations as a donation drop for a food or toy drive. When asked how she measures success at her company, she replied: “When the local small businesses are happy and making money on their products being sold in our stores. And hearing those same business owners talking to others about their positive experiences in our stores or at the events we host, makes my heart smile.” This & That • 843-633-2904 Conway, Market Common, Pawleys Island, Tanger Myrtle Beach, Tanger Charleston

KC’s father was her inspiration to get into the insurance field. When she was fourteen, she lost him to Leukemia and she did not know anything about life insurance until she was a grown, married, mother of three. She explained, “I have no doubt my Daddy loved me, but I believe that if he had been better educated on life insurance and how it takes care of your loved ones when you can’t be there to do so, he would have made the right choice to get life insurance. I don’t want ANY children to be deprived because someone didn’t take the time to educate their parents.” For other women hoping to start a business, KC advises: “Use your support team! Always stay flexible and open to new ideas! Lastly, but definitely most importantly - give yourself some grace! You will make mistakes along the way and you have to allow yourself to be OK with that!” KC Hall Insurance Solutions • Multi-state licensed • 843-433-4017

Ginny Lassiter • Sunset River Marketplace This year is Sunset River Marketplace’s 20th year anniversary and Ginny’s original inspiration to open her gallery was because there was not a venue in the area to display the many talented, local artists. Her vision of showcasing SC and NC artists has transformed into a vibrant community hub featuring just about every style and genre you can imagine. The gallery also hosts benefits, literary events, performing arts, and demonstrations for the locals and vacationers to enjoy. “As the owner, a lot of the day-to-day chores are not so romantic, but it sure does make up for the most fun and rewarding part, which is working with clients to help them choose the right painting or accent piece to complement their personality,” says Ginny, as she loves mixing texture and color to help develop someone’s personal style.

Judi Murphy • Rescued Treasures “I grew up with a houseful of stray, rescued animals. The local vet would call my mother whenever he had a dog or cat that needed a home. Our home functioned as an animal shelter long before they became organized charities and popular. So, I’ve been involved in rescuing animals my entire life!” Judi explained. As a life-long lover of animals, she has truly found her niche at Rescued Treasures whose mission is to raise as much money as possible for All 4 Paws Animal Rescue.

Gail Roberson • BloominGail’s Consignment Gail has some very important advice she would like to give all the women hoping to start their own businesses: “First, you must believe in your ‘product’ by letting others experience what you are selling so that you know you are not the only one who likes what you have to offer. Do your homework by checking out other businesses, their prices, policies, etc. Try not to invade their territory but do try to create a business even better for your clientele. Most of all, treat your customers with respect as they will make or break your business. Change your display often so your customer will not become bored. Lastly, work your butt off making it everything you ever dreamed of, so you are able to absolutely love what you do every day.” BloominGail’s Consignment • Little river • 843-780-1136

Melissa and Mel explained, “In 2013, we were nudged to begin considering the tension between excess and need, and how we could play a role in bridging the gap. Good Deed Goods officially launched in 2015. In 2022, we will celebrate 7 years of working to ‘give well & do good’ through business. We have lots of goals for year 7!

Natalie Krumenacker • Shop Ravel As Shop Ravel continues to grow, Natalie has found that using repeat, as well as referred, customers is the best way to measure success. The goal of her boutique has always been to provide unique styles at an affordable price, as well as give women a welcoming and positive shopping environment. She explained, “It’s easy to have one customer, but one customer who comes back again means they liked their experience and want more of it. When someone new walks through the door and says that a friend told them about the store or their neighbor described Shop Ravel as a ‘hidden gem’ on Facebook, I take that as a huge accomplishment. Having a woman come back to Shop Ravel, a lot of times with a friend in tow, is the biggest measurement of success in my eyes.” Shop Ravel • Surfside Beach • 843-945-4116 22 :: :: February 2022

Louanne Valleri • Design on a Dime Louanne believes that determining if you have a perfect work-life balance depends on your happiness. She explained hers, “I love my store, so going to work doesn’t seem like work to me. My satisfaction comes from seeing the reactions of my customers when they find that perfect accent piece for their home, or the perfect gift for a friend. When that happens, I know I’ve done one part of my job correctly. The other part is having happy customers who refer my store to their friends. To me, my store is an extension of my home and I treat my customers as valued guests. In what spare time I have, I love to play tennis - it was one of the reasons I moved here!

Page Nash • Barbara’s Fine Gifts Spending time at work as well as with family is Page’s biggest investment. She enjoys quality time with her husband, Skeeter, their dog, Captain, and their cat, Lilly (aka Pee Wee). Her biggest joy is being greeted with coffee first thing in the morning, time spent together before work, and then being greeted by Captain as soon as she gets home. “Captain knows this is his time to play and run around with his best dog friend, “sis,” and I know that I can only start dinner after he is completely worn out.” Page continued, “cooking dinner is my time to unwind and, on my days off, our family loves to go fishing, ride the boat, and hang out at The Point. In February, we always look forward to our annual trip to Marathon, Florida. Even in the off season, we always find ways to spend time together.”

Jacque Richardson St. Gabriel Assisted Living & Memory Care of Murrells Inlet Jacque’s inspiration to become a health care administrator stemmed from her mother, who was one of the first female hospital administrators in our region. She explained, “I saw firsthand the true meaning of a ‘strong work ethic’ and I like to think that my own career is fashioned after that of my mother’s. She was my example of dedication, determination, and loyalty to her life’s work. I have found healthcare to be a fascinating and an evolving area of service.” Jacque has devoted over 40 years to this service and is currently pursuing her passion for senior care at St. Gabriel’s Assisted Living and Memory Care Community as the Executive Director. “It is a very rewarding experience to not only provide needed services but to also form loving relationships with our residents and their families.

Dawn Richardson • Grady’s Jewelers Showing kindness and compassion is Dawn Richardson’s passion and purpose, especially now, as she reflects upon the last few years. Dawn said, “I don’t view my family shop as JUST a business, nor the people who enter as JUST customers. My shop is a member of the family and we genuinely care about the happiness of our ‘guests.’ They have requests for help with a repair, or help to find a treasure for someone special, and we do our best to treat them like friends and family.” Over the last 51 years, Dawn’s business has grown and changed so much. She is incredibly grateful for the “guests” who continue to choose them and have turned into dear friends. Dawn understands that we do not know what everyone else is going through, so a smiling, friendly face is always a blessing. She encourages everyone to be kind, compassionate, and to shop small.

Leslie Wilson • Shine Café Finding ways to use her talents to benefit the community is Leslie’s passion and purpose. Renovating old houses, growing flowers and food, and cooking are also her favorite passions. Shine Cafe has given her the chance to combine them all while serving the Conway neighborhood where she lives. Most people do not know about her family background which includes her Friesian mother and Brazilian/Italian father. She explained, “My parents lived in Brazil and Germany and spent vacation time in Friesland while in Europe. My mom absorbed the cooking influences of the areas and passed her skills to me, which I use daily at Shine Cafe. Mom taught me to serve whole foods prepared simply and as close to the way made by nature as possible to maintain maximum flavor and nutrition.” Leslie’s love for community shines as bright as her café.

Brooke exclaimed, “It was her passion and it very quickly became mine!” In 2008, Linda lost her battle with ALS and Brooke lost her best friend, but she promised her mother that she would do her best to keep her passion alive. Brooke is looking forward to another year of opening the boutique doors every day. She said, “In 2022, I am raising a thirteen- and fourteen-year-old by myself and running a business.

An acronym for Community Learning About Special Subjects, CLASS kept an open door for whatever course or program might evolve. One course, the title of which was inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s reference to Paris as a “moveable feast,” evolved into this year-round series of Friday literary luncheons, unique meet-the-author events featuring award-winning, bestselling and debut authors at different restaurants from Myrtle Beach to Georgetown. In partnership with Litchfield Books since 2002, The Moveable Feast is considered one of the premier book tour events in the South, with authors of local, regional, and national note delivering more than 1200 presentations to some 72,000 people over the 24 years of its growing popularity.

Starting Your First Business Tips by Kim Freeman

A wise woman once told me: You can’t put an old head on young shoulders. And while personal experience makes for the best teacher, when starting your own business, you can benefit from the wisdom of others. Take me, for example. Less than two years ago, I made a “pandemic pirouette” that launched my HR consulting business. Necessity pushed me into it when I found myself among the millions laid off due to COVID-19. Once I accepted my job wasn’t coming back, I jumped headlong into my venture without much planning. Hindsight revealed that as a mistake! Now, I offer this “old head” for young business shoulders as a way to avoid some of the missteps I made. Tips for building your first business: 1. Lay the Foundation Before you hang out a shingle, start a social media page, or make those business cards, make sure you understand these things: • Purpose/Mission – what are you hoping to achieve with your business through its products or services? You might consider writing a mission statement that will help you focus on your goals. There’s plenty of help for writing such statements on the internet, including an article from BigCommerce that recommends focusing on value, inspiration, plausibility, and specificity. • Audience – who needs your products or services? And of those, are there target groups that no one else is servicing? Chron., an online publication for small businesses, suggested starting with identifying the four levels of primary target audience: 1) where they are; 2) who they are; 3) why do they buy; 4) how do they buy. • Competitors – Who is already in the marketplace, and how are your services or products differentiated? Guard against discouragement here. There may be many competitors in your lane, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for your business. Look at the bread aisle at your grocery store for proof that there can be room for many similar products and services. 28 :: :: February 2022

• Mentors – Is there anyone with experience in the specific business you are starting or starting their own business in a different industry that could provide mentorship? According to a July 2021 article in Entrepreneur magazine, startups led by entrepreneurs with mentors have greater success. If you don’t know anyone, look for mentors in online forums like LinkedIn or professional or industry groups. Network with your friends and family to ask if they know anyone who might be willing to discuss your business venture. 2. Gather Your Materials/Experts After laying the foundation, take these steps: • Draft a business plan/model – you don’t have to make this super detailed or fancy. Just use the information you gleaned and sketch out your framework. Not sure where to start? Check out resources on the internet, many of which provide templates for these purposes. Your local or state government may have online resources as well. South Carolina, for example, offers free information on starting a business at • Make a list – what do you need to get started? Remember not only materials for products or leased space, but also office equipment (computers, printers, desk, lighting, cameras), software (Office, Excel, PowerPoint, QuickBooks), shipping supplies, insurance, licenses, and professional dues. Don’t forget funding sources, too. Will you get working capital from loans, grants, or gifts? Nerdwallet provides some ideas here. You’ll also need to open business bank accounts. • Enlist experts – some fledgling business owners try to cut corners when it comes to getting expert advice. But “you get what you pay for” is an adage for a reason. Scrimping on legal, tax, and HR advice when you start your business will end up costing you later. While you likely can file your business with your state secretary of state online, legal and tax advice regarding what kind of business you form, such as partnership, LLC, or corporation, is essential. Read more on the topic at the Small Business Administration website. And if you plan on having employees, an HR consultant can help you avoid compliance problems. The same goes for marketing expertise, especially if you don’t have the skills to build and maintain your website and social media accounts. Besides online resources, such as Fiverr and

UpWork, don’t forget to check area colleges that might have students looking to make extra money by building websites or designing brands.

3. Start Building You laid the foundation and gathered your materials and experts; NOW you can start building your dream business! • Stay on brand – When launching your business, remember to stay on brand across all online platforms and with any other media/advertising you do. Use the logo designed for you, along with the recommended fonts and colors. If you had your business name and website set up before opening (as recommended), your primary email should be name@ (or .biz or .net). I didn’t do this upfront, and now I track two different email boxes! • Keep a schedule – When you work for yourself, it’s more important than ever to keep a regular schedule. Otherwise, you can work too few hours (the boss won’t mind!) or way too many. Balance is the key. This tip goes for sleep, exercise, and healthy eating as well. • Work the plan – Now is when you return to your business plan for a roadmap to meet your goals. If you haven’t fully developed quarterly goals, do so. By using three-month increments, you can keep from feeling overwhelmed and have an excellent chance of seeing positive results. • Ask for help – Just like you wouldn’t try to put in a large cross beam to hold up the second floor of a home by yourself, you’ll need help when building your business. ASK! You can also search out support groups too. For instance, I’m in a few for HR professionals, and they are a resource for expertise or as a sounding board. Even with taking these tips to heart, your business journey still likely has lessons for you. But hopefully fewer. And what you do learn, make sure you pass that along to the next set of young business shoulders.
