Defining Moments that Make Entrepreneurship Worthwhile

Posted by Molly Berry on

Not long ago, Luna Zorro experienced a defining moment. Auberge Resort Collections contacted me, interested in purchasing custom robes for their Los Cabos property. I knew that a major opportunity was on the horizon. It was exactly the kind of client and order size that I'd been preparing for and working towards: a very large, custom order for a luxury hotel. This was my chance to prove what Luna Zorro could do. I started by designing and sending samples customized specifically for the Auberge project. I rallied my weavers and we crunched numbers. I researched everything from shipping to manufacturing...

Artisan Adventures with The Thread Caravan

Posted by Molly Berry on

I'm always up for a trip to Lake Atitlan. About a 2+ hour drive from Antigua, I visit the lake often because many of the weavers that I work with live there. But also, Lake Atitlan happens to be an incredibly beautiful and magical destination so I go as often as I can. This week, I had an exceptionally unique visit when I tagged along with my friend Caitlin Garcia-Ahern and her company, The Thread Caravan. In short, The Thread Caravan offers artisan adventures around Latin America. Whether it's learning how to make Mezcal in Oaxaca, Mexico or sailing through...

Her founding question: could crowd-sourcing design build an e-commerce company that stayed in tune with its consumer audience forever? What has grown since 2007 is remarkable. I was recently invited to be a part of the The...

How This Antigua House and Airbnb Are Paying Us to Travel

Posted by Molly Berry on

Last year, we wanted to leave Antigua during the busy Easter Week. As beautiful as it is with all the processions and sawdust carpets throughout the cobblestone streets, it's also crazy busy and hard to carry on with everyday life. A friend suggested that we would have a good chance booking our house if we put it up on Airbnb, so we took some simple photos and made ourselves a profile. Sure enough, within a few days our home was booked for Semana Santa and we instantly had a way to not only subsidize a little trip of our own,...

How Change in Routine Helps Me To Prioritize

Posted by Molly Berry on

On the most basic level, adventure of any kind forces a change of scenery, turns the tables on routine, and disrupts the usual day-to-day. Generally speaking, all of those concepts are a parent's nightmare when two small children are involved. It isn't always easy to break the forces of habit that tend to maintain normalcy, but it is always and inevitably a reward to pack up and push those limits. Eleven days ago, my family and I hit the road towards our cacao farm in Rio Dulce, on the Caribbean coast of Guatemala. We are so lucky to have a...
