What is your business all about? We're bringing Sioux Falls back to the table by forging a community of board and tabletop game enthusiasts, providing events, retail, and rentals so you can try before you buy!

What would you say are the top three skills needed to be a successful business owner?

  2. Commitment
  3. Self awareness

What three pieces of advice would you give to someone who wants to launch their own business?

  1. Know your why

Who has been your greatest inspiration? Or what book has inspired you the most? Or what is your favorite book? Love all the "you're a badass" books the most, they're hilarious, consumable, and inspiring.

How do you conquer those moments of doubt that so often stifle or trip up or stop so many? Remember why I'm doing this and remember I'm not alone.

Please feel free to share any other information that will help your audience get to know you better. I'm always working to be a better steward to the world. This journey hasn't been easy but it's been absolutely worth it.

Passion: I have an uncanny ability to make people feel welcome and heard. I also really enjoy making games approachable to everyone!
