Freedom BOUND Books • Leah Robinson
Leah was the winner of our The Modern Hustle contest. A collaboration with deMo Photography • The Creative Hustle, The Modern Woman Show and of course Our Collective Muse. She was the lucky nominee to receive a spot in Jocelyn's 4 week mentor-ship The Creative Hustle, a booth at the two day Modern woman show and a blog feature that you can read below. I personally got to touch and feel all of her books and was blown away by her attention to detail and quality. Can't wait to help mold your future Leah!! xo joc
"It all began for me the day I missed my son's 6 month vaccines. I realized I had too much on my plate and needed as way to keep myself organized. I began looking into purchasing a day planner. There was literally nothing on the market that offered the kind of detail I was looking for so the next logical step for me was to create my own. I researched all sorts of planners and pages, started designing and after 8 months of "trial", bound my own book. I gifted a few to some girlfriends and they encouraged me to start selling them. I entered 3 trade shows to try it out. The first show was Oct 16, 2016. Through personal invitation I ended up in 8 shows and by christmasI had sold over 100 books! I even have one in Australia right now!"
"I'm busy, ALL. THE. TIME., but I love to be productive. Between myself and my husband, we have three small buisnesses, a 12 year old daughter, and two son's aged 2 and 1. I am a creative soul. If I ever have "me-time", I am usually designing new products, revamping current layouts, searching for anew ideas or educating myself on all things small business and planning. Truthfully though, be it a wednesday or a friday, nights are almost always spent with my family. Running baths, reading stories, tucking them in. My loves keep me grounded , focused and they are what make all the "busy" worth it.
"It sounds cliché, but my biggest inspiration is my husband. He has run his own successful business now for the last 10 years. He has been through and seen it all. If I ever need advice or creative input, he is my go-to. I hope someday I can handle my own business with the integrity and pride he does."
