HOW ONE PHONE CALL KEPT ME FROM QUITTING MY OWN BUSINESS - THE YELLOW ROOM

As entrepreneurs, girlbosses, and creators, there’s going to come a time where we want to quit. Throw in the towel, kick up our feet with a glass of pinot, and say “enough is enough!” I know I’ve been in the I-want-to-quit stage more times than I can count.

WEARING ALL THE HATS: OUR INTERVIEW WITH LAUREN LILLY, FOUNDER OF YELLOW 108 - THE YELLOW ROOM

One of our biggest joys at Yellow Co. is getting to know women, and brands, who are creating change for good in their very own, creative way. Of course, we’re even more drawn to those that share our name (and a love for a certain bright color). So naturally, we chatted with Lauren Lilly, founder […]

WHAT I LEARNED WHEN MY DREAM JOB BECAME A CHORE - THE YELLOW ROOM

Growing up in an Asian culture, everything revolved around my career. Having both of my parents graduate from nursing school, it was a no-brainer for them that I, too, was going to step into the medical field.

QUIETING FEAR TO LET YOUR VOICE SPEAK LOUD

I can remember standing in the bathroom mirror and practicing my resignation speech over, and over again. I went through the words that would speak my heart and intent, but clarify my courage to leave for my next level. Every time I finished it, expecting to feel at peace, I felt a knot of fear […]

CONFRONTING OUR INNER JUDGEMENT TO UNCOVER OUR BEST SELF - THE YELLOW ROOM

Who am I, really? It’s a question I’ve put a lot of thought into over the past year. Every day, we are in the process of becoming ourselves. Each choice we make (about clothes, or business, or relationships, or food) is an unconscious decision about who we are not only on that day, but who […]

HOW TO MAINTAIN MOMENTUM WHILE STARTING A BUSINESS - THE YELLOW ROOM

Some people in life will tell you that figuring out what you want to do is the hard part. Honestly, I can’t completely agree. Once I realized that I wanted to create my own company as a Holistic Health and Wellness Coach, I found out that deciding how to move forward when starting a business can be just […]

5 MUSTS FOR BRINGING MEANING TO THE IN-BETWEEN OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP

I was feeling a little guilty. I’d worked so hard to get where I am, but now there was somewhere else I wanted to go. An old friend’s stinging words flashed back into my mind and nagged at my heart, “Won’t you ever be content?!” But the truth is, I still am. I’ve realized in […]

You’re doing a lot right now. You could be stretching yourself right and left to meet deadlines for your side job and your passion project. Maybe you own your own business and are constantly creating events, taking care of your team, and trying to figure out what is next. Or, perhaps you’re in the beginning of it all […]

LETTING YOUR INTUITION LEAD YOU THROUGH THE INDECISION OF WHAT TO DO NEXT - THE YELLOW ROOM

When I first embarked on my entrepreneurial journey, I was instantly aware of all the beautiful work of other business owners. I was caught in the tension of being both inspired and discouraged from the endless possible paths that I could take. Confused about what I felt was my “true calling”, there were times I felt utterly […]

UTILIZING YOUR TALENTS AND CREATIVITY TO GIVE BACK

You know you are meant for something bigger. You know that with your passion, empathy, and talents you can make a difference in the world around you. But where do you start? How do you identify what you should be focusing your energy on? I have often heard people say that they just don’t have […]
