Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Carla Sakrison, Founder of Tahoe Boho, located in Tahoe City, CA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Tahoe Boho is a retail studio that offers body care, art, jewelry, and workshops open to the community.
Tell us about yourself
My vision for Tahoe Boho Studio is not only to provide a bohemian lifestyle vibe but to offer a refuge for people to take a seat at the table and create something that not only comes from your heart but speaks to your soul. Personalizing is something I enjoy providing for our community you can iron patches onto a shirt/sweatshirt, create your own tea blend, design a bracelet or necklace & even make your own body care with the amazing organic oils, herbs & essential oils I have here.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
COVID closed my first business; I owned a restaurant/conference center/catering business for twenty years, but my current business was in the works for over 10 years… I became a yoga teacher and studied Ayurveda, Herbalism, Regenerative Agriculture, and tarot. I've written a couple of little books to help integrate all these practices along this true north journey. I believe I escaped the boredom of the COVID cave we all experienced by engaging my creativity. I delved deep into body care, jewelry, artwork, and more. I didn't have a clear plan for my future, but I followed my intuition and wisdom to finally arrive where I am today.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The ever-changing economy keeps things lively. One needs to constantly revisit marketing, offerings, and pricing.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Find your passion, learn what you need to grow, and don't let fear keep you from forward movement.
Where can people find you and your business?
