Ep. 06: Rosie Sumstad on opening a brick + mortar, being a new mom, trusting yourself + more

Rosie Sumstad is the founder of Fringe & Friends PDX, a brand new salon in Portland, OR and a member of the Fringe NYC family. She's also a brand new mom - a life change that wasn't exactly expected or planned for.

One of my favorite things about Rosie is how chill she is. But she's not just relaxed, she's confident that everything will work out as it should - a skill most people search for most their lives. 

In this episode, we talk about how you have to be confident in yourself to see the results you want. We also talk about being patient and going with the flow when life throws you curveballs. And finally, what it's like moving across the country, opening your own brick and mortar, and being a new mom!
