AM: What are you celebrating in life, today?

CM: All the goodness and kindness people have. It's easy to miss these days, but I try to notice and celebrate it when I see it.

Meet Soleil Roth

AM: What do you do and what do you love about it?

SR: I won the 2018 SAVEUR Readers’ Choice for Best Travel Blog and I am celebrating my unique voice and perspective on the world and the space I take up. I am celebrating the past year of vulnerability, and the upcoming year of being unapologetically me.

Sarah Dillingham

Meet Sarah Dillingham

AM: What do you do and what do you love about it?

SD: I run Grace & Able, we make better wrist braces. I'm passionate about creating beautiful products that people enjoy using, to improve dignity and quality of life. Nobody wants to wear uncomfortable ugly products, regardless of whether you are injured or healthy, disabled or able-bodied.

AM: What are you celebrating in life, today?

SD: I am celebrating three things:

  1. A successful pilot program — we had 15 wonderful people test our wrist brace prototypes, resulting in lots of insightful data. Most our testers chose to keep their wrist braces at the end of the trial, which is a fantastic outcome.
  1. We are engaging with local Washington manufacturing resources to move from prototype to production, which is exciting, daunting and energizing all at once!
  1. I have been approved for a new rheumatoid medication. My old meds stopped working, causing knee pain. While I enjoyed rocking a very dapper cane, I'm incredibly thankful to have a healthy start to 2019.

Alix Sappington

Meet Alix Sappington

AM: What do you do and what do you love about it?

AS: I manage senior client accounts and teams at davies + dixon, a digital marketing firm in Seattle. I love helping brands craft their brand stories in fun, creative ways. Nothing like helping someone take it to the next level.

AM: What are you celebrating in life, today?

AS: It's all about self-love right now. More self-care, less apologizing, and more of what makes me happy.

Micha Goebig Phelps

Meet Micha Goebig Phelps

AM: What do you do and what do you love about it?

MGP: I have a translation/copywriting business and am just launching my new coaching business, Go Big Coaching. I am super excited about working with many women and helping them through major transitions like moving abroad or their midlife quest for identity and purpose.

AM: What are you celebrating in life, today?

MGP: Today, I am celebrating community and learning. I try to meet someone new or learn something new every day, and today I managed both, which makes me really happy.

Elizabeth Meyer

Meet Elizabeth Meyer

AM: What do you do and what do you love about it?

EM: I'm an independent recruiter and consultant; my niche is working with clients who are employing top-notch executive and personal assistants. I love encouraging clients and job seekers to move away from the typical, transactional elements of recruiting and job seeking, and into a space that is human, realistic, and supportive.

AM: What are you celebrating in life, today?

EM: Today, I celebrate the learning process. I care a little less about "being better," and more about stepping into spaces or experiences knowing that growth will come. I celebrate (sometimes, in very small, subtle ways) that I am "better" because of what I learned, not what I accomplished.

Jenni Gritters

Meet Jenni Gritters

AM: What do you do and what do you love about it?

JG: I run my own writing and editing business, through which I tell stories about health, adventures and the outdoors for brands and publications all over the world. I love that I get to teach thousands of people about how to live bigger and better every day, through my words!

AM: What are you celebrating in life, today?

JG: I'm celebrating starting my own business — a dream of mine! I created a business model that allows me to live a balanced life, meaning that I only work 4 days per week and get to spend a lot of my time away from my desk, moving and exploring. This life was previously only a pipe dream of mine, and now I'm living it!
