John Dorine

It all started my senior year of high school back in 2012. In art, class is where my love for art started. I did two years at Palm Beach State College, where I was just taking General Education couple. Then, I transferred to the University of Central Florida in Orlando. At that time, I still wasn’t sure what I wanted to do for my career. For the first at UCF, I wanted to become a cop. After that first year, I realized that’s not what really wanted to do. Read more>>

I get very excited about dessert! I am a lover of almost all cakes (not fruit-sorry!), cookies, pies and pastries! Wherever I travel, you will find me in the local bakeries gathering as many goodies as I can try! (I also love to support local!) I have loved baked goods and baking since I was 6 with my first Betty Crocker oven and chocolate brownie mix (which I only sometimes baked because the batter was so good!). Read more>>

My story begins as a toddler beating on pots, pans and lamp shades at home. My parents noticed that what I was doing was more than just a child “making noise” and “tearing stuff up” in the house. They helped nurture my musical interests by putting me in an environment that was strongly rooted in the arts. At age 17, the reality that I could pursue music as a career set in… and that was all I needed. Read more>>

I could start with I was born on May 15, 1977, in Brooklyn, NY but I’ll skip right to what brought me to the work I do in this world. Everything was fine. There was not outside of reason to make a change. I was the VP of People & Culture for a healthcare consulting firm and all was well, sort of. I wasn’t well on the inside. I was going through the motions, checking the boxes, staying safe. Read more>>

I am located in West Palm Beach, Florida and network all around South Florida. I started hula hoop dancing in 2014 as a hobby after I picked up my mom’s fitness hula hoop that she would use for exercise when she would watch TV. Around 2016 during the holidays, I had my day job tell me that I couldn’t visit my family in Texas for the Christmas. In response, I made a good decision to quit. Upon returning, I needed to figure out what I wanted to pursue as a source of income that would make me happy. Read more>>

Orenthian and Mickoy Porter

The Name of our product is Fashion Loopz. This was birthed out of personal frustration and annoyance. I like a nice belt with my outfits at times, but very often, I had to deal with that extra portion hanging off at the end. I would always try to find a quick fix to keep it in place and give it a neater look, so I resorted to hairpins and even a clear strap to keep my belt ends tucked. This was not the best look plus it eventually damaged the belts. Read more>>

It wasn’t in the cards to be a therapist. Or an entrepreneur. Even typing those words seem foreign. I was always going to be that hardcore doctor that didn’t take crap from anyone and did her thing. My goal was to save every child from cancer that I could. Life happened, that changed. What didn’t change was my passion for healthcare and after graduate school, I found myself working in healthcare but from the mental health side. Read more>>

I have always been a very creative and organized person. At a young age, people asked me to help plan their parties. After a while, I thought what am I doing? I am good at this and enjoy it, but it is a lot of work and I need to start charging. Little did I know what I was getting into! I knew I had a good work ethic as I grew up riding and showing horses since I was young. Read more>>
