Karen Pulaski | Founder & Creative Director

Artistry and Quality We use only the best Italian made textiles for our bedding collections and our Italian workroom is run by the great grandson of the founder of Frette. Selecting the best quality cottons on the market ensures easy care for all of our bedding collections. True luxury endures with ease in my opinion. Our special accessory pieces are all artisanal based and carefully curated with our customers in mind. Our selection of cashmere from Nepal is designed exclusively for Tribute Goods Fine Linens. Our vintage Hermès silk pillows are sourced from premier antique dealers who are established in Europe and Japan and fabricated by hand locally. We are adding to our shop daily and offer a wide variety of beautiful objects for the home that can not be found anywhere else. Read more>>

Carli Kilgore | Integrative Dietitian & Wellness Consultant

I think that each practitioner has his or her strengths that set them apart. My success and why clients come to me, is because I have mastered the craft of taking high level interventions and making them easy to understand and realistic to implement. In many cases, I can speak from experiences, and I can give them the motivation and tools to reach their goals. Read more>>

LaToya Lovelady | Beauty Business Coach, Author & Healthy Hairstylist

The most important factor behind my success is my consistency to show up everyday and my ability to adapt to change. No matter what goes on I show up and I give my best to all of my clients. This also helps with my client retention and my client experience. I adapt to change because I know that change is always happening and there is nothing you can do about it but to accept it and make the necessary changes to keep moving too. Read more>>

Vincent Fink | Artistic Ninja

The craftsmanship on the designs. I am very cautious to make sure I’ve explored all the best options and distill them into the best design in my drafting abilities to create something iconic and original. I don’t cut any corners. I will research for 10’s of hours sometimes on a design before I start drawing. My designs are the most scientifically accurate and mnemonic, meaning, with pictures I create graphics that help one memorize large amounts of complex information. One design can tell you an essay paper’s worth of info about any given scientist or theory. Read more>>

Gabby Nguyen | Owner

I’d say the most important factor behind our brand is our brand activation service, which is a mobile version of our screen printing shop that can be setup anywhere. Companies will hire us to print their artwork or logo onto a shirt right in front of their customers, allowing them to engage and make them a part of the process. There’s so many print shops in Houston and we really had to find our niche, what people in Houston were needing beyond t-shirts. At the start of our company, we really wanted to focus on educating and being transparent about the printing process, which we found our brand activations are great at. We’ve added other activations along the way to fit different budgets, like button making, but we found that because many people haven’t seen the shirt printing process, it’s a huge attention-grabber.

Captain Dwayne Green | Professional Hunting and Fishing Outfitter & Guide

The most important factor behind our success is always being a good listener. Not only do we want to understand what our clients are asking for but we want to be able exceed those expectations. Be honest if you can not do something tell them. People are way more likely to still use you if you are up front and honest during the entire process. Not only will you build a repeat client but the main ingredient for and type of relationship trust. I don’t think a lot of people realize it is about building long lasting client relationships that turn into friendships over time That will guarantee you long term success. Read more>>
