Even though I have stayed at the Ace in Palm Springs a multitude of times, every time I visit I still find little corners that I hadn’t discovered before. I love going during the week when the it’s quiet and the weekend madness hasn’t yet arrived.
I was there last week for an event called Designer Vaca where 50 some female designers gathered together for a little fun in the sun and a bit of work chat too. I spoke on a panel where I talked about my career path and the whys and hows of when I decided to quit my full-time job to launch my own business. I left the retreat feeling a sense of community that you don’t always get when you work solo a lot of the time. I mean how often do you get to be in a room with 50 people that have the same passion? (magic) It had me craving more creative collaborations and laughing until my cheeks hurt.
