Breanna Goodrow

Owner/Creative Director, Studio DiBella

I decided that in my thirties—I turned 30 this year—that I wanted to have my own business. I'd always admired people who ran their own business and I read a lot, tons of interviews on ‘how do creatives have their own business’? How do you make the leap from working for someone and having full-time security to being out on your own? And everyone seemed to be able to figure that out by their early thirties and they never talk about it an interview, but they seem to get it together. I've just always had it in my mind, that I'm going to get it together to do that in my thirties. So somehow, I did that magic and .... it's just nice to close out this time of leading from within a company to going to lead out on my own, as my own proprietor so to speak.
