Are you reflecting lately? During this time of new beginnings with new school, new routines, and after the Jewish New Year I’m finding my footing again. Getting back to focus. And I can't help but think about how *lucky* I've been. I have met some of the most supportive cheerleaders on my journey so far. You'll see quotes everywhere and it really rings true - when one of us wins, we all win. We rise to the top together.
So, here are a few fabulous women who deserve to be recognized in my book. For their genuine support of my dreams and generosity in their feedback. For mentioning my name in a room when I’m not around. For believing in me and also for validating my goals and ambitions – for inspiring me to keep on keepin on. And for all that they are working on – in hopes you’ll support them too!!!
- Pamela Pekerman – The ultimate mom boss cheerleader. Your branding bestie (well, mine anyway). The Queen of messaging, a serial entrepreneur. My first mentor, turned fabulous friend!

- Lisa Kerson Frohlich – The most impeccably styled mom I’ve ever met. Lisa is always in the know about new designers and exclusive pop ups. She’s a talented writer for various style publications.

- Ariel Stein – Jewish Mom Goals. Yep, I said it. Ariel is an Instagram friend turned real life friend who I’ve only actually met in person a few times. Based in Brooklyn, Ariel is a Jewish Influencer and Founder of Jewish Family Magic. She’s an expert in how to celebrate Jewish Holidays in realistic practical ways as a busy mom with no time. Ariel has been a big supporter and connector of Sara Joy to other mamas. Plain and simple Ariel is an example of a kind mama who has become my friend and I’m so grateful!

What do all these women have in common?
They have heart. I realize I’ve been lucky since I launched, to have encountered so many superhero supporters. Being a fashion entrepreneur is less than glamorous – I swear. My goal in launching Sara Joy is to create a collection that ignites positivity in you – all created with my own artwork. I am grateful every day that I’m even doing this – doing this is the goal after all.
Yet I know I would not have gotten this far in such a short time without this amazing support – from all of you. Thank you for being on my journey. I can’t wait for you to see what’s next!
