Today, I bring you a giveaway from SouleMama Sponsor Silk Oak. In owner Jan's words:
"Silk Oak offers original design cotton clothing, hand silkscreened in our studio in Ithaca, NY since 1977!"
SouleMama: What do you dream for the future of your business?
Jan: My vision and dreams have evolved over the last 34 years. It used to be enough to make things that were safe, colorful, high quality and made people happy. I still believe in those values but the world is changing and I feel that businesses have a responsibility to be a force for positive change.
SouleMama: What inspires you?
Jan: There seems to be no shortage of things to be inspired by. Inspiration usually comes from the most unexpected places, like a gift! Over the years, I have found that, in my exploration of things that seem foreign or unrelated to my work, I find the greatest surprises. I always try to be willing to do something outside my comfort zone.
SouleMama: How do you avoid burnout?
Jan: It's easy to push yourself too far, especially when you are balancing family and work. I used to try to be superwoman/earthmama and do it ALL (and maybe I still can go down that path) but, I've learned to pace myself. I try to prioritize, make time for the things that are really important to me and accept that that will mean there are some things that may not get done. It's all about choice.
For today's giveaway, Silk Oak is generously offering the following "family" gift package to ONE lucky winner:
In addition, Silk Oak is offering all SouleMama readers 15% off their orders through August 7th, 2011. Use code SOULEMAMA at checkout.
