Ladies Night

Lean In Takes Over Mantle for FFT

Mantle is excited to have Lean In Mississippi take over Mantle for Fondren's First Thursday on September 1, 2016. Lean In will feature four women entrepreneurs for Startup Happy Hour where anyone can come have a beer, a popsicle, and learn how these Mississippi women are leaning in to the future.

Lean In Mississippi is a women’s professional group inspired by Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead. Lean In's mission is to help women in Mississippi advance their careers by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and information. "We know that Mississippi is a tough place to be a woman in the workforce – and in order to drive change, we need to work together to encourage more women to step into larger roles to help shape the future of our communities and our state," says Kate McNeel, a founder of Lean In.

The Four Featured Women Entrepreneurs taking the spotlight on Thursday evening are:

  • Dawn Dugle is a former journalist turned Business Storytelling Consultant and Trainer. She is the CEO of Dugle Media and works with Fortune 500 companies, non-profits and even state agencies around the country. Dawn trains her clients how to tell their business' story.
  • Talamieka Brice is a visual storyteller and CEO of Brice Media. She is the only graphic designer in Mississippi to be featured in Graphic Design USA in that magazine’s 50-year history. Brice Media is also a certified woman-owned business in the state of Mississippi.
  • Hollidae Morrison wants to save the planet, one recycled plastic bottle at a time. She knows when it comes to being eco-friendly, some people feel it’s a little too big a task. That’s why she founded Easily Eco, a platform to show “daily conservation made easy”.
  • Emily Caraway is using her entrepreneurial spirit as an independent fashion consultant with LuLaRoe – a woman-owned company founded to help other women become financially independent.  

So, no matter your gender, come Lean In to the future at Mantle this Thursday!

S.O. Terec Hawks Good Will T's on Thursday

Look good, Feel good.

Socially conscience t-shirt company S.O. Terec shared some thoughts on starting a small business in Mississippi leading up to their show at Mantle's launch party this Thursday.

In a few sentences describe your company (including the founders), where you are in the startup cycle? Do you have any interesting stats about your company/product/etc. that you would like to share? 

We started with t-shirts and are in the process of offering jewelry; we use an eye catching symbol to represent support of neighbors here in our state. We are in the fourth year of business and through our efforts have been able to provide tens of thousands of meals to hungry Mississippians via the Mississippi Food Network. 


How did you choose Mississippi and where you chose to root as a business?

Mississippi was the inspiration for the company's mission. When I came back to Mississippi this was part of my rooting down at home. 


What were some things in starting your company in Mississippi that made business life easier? 

The incredible support of the State's good-hearted people. This is a movement larger than a single, social enterprise. We as consumers have the ability to influence the way goods and services are offered by being conscious of how you elect to spend your dollars. 


What is one thing about working in Mississippi that you would tell someone who is on the fence about starting up in Mississippi vs another state?  

We have incredibly gifted creative minds here, MS is a business friendly environment, and of course the quality of life for the price is hard to beat.
