Join Follow Me Friday with Joan + Priya this week as we talk about Pursuing Our Passions Boldly with our Guests this week… Mushmina Co-Founders Katie + Heather O’Neill – two sisters who combined their love of travel and passion to promote the stories of global artisans into a mission based business to create beautiful, inspired products that have cultural integrity and soul. They are committed to the preservation of traditional craft and the employment of artisans globally.

On this week’s show, Joan, Priya, and Katie welcome Katie and Heather O’ Neal from Mushmina, as they talk about boldly pursuing your passions.
Joan, Priya, and Katie open the show recounting some of the events of the year and the changing seasons. Next they preview their theme for the shows for this month: boldly pursuing our passions. Priya previews the rest of the show and their guest speakers. Next they welcome Daniella Cracknell, creator of Spa Dress, as their new sponsor on the show and together they talk about their giveaway for a Spa Dress. Before the segment ends, Joan, Priya and Katie give their “wins” for the week.
Priya opens the segment shouting out What Women Want and Judy Goss, who are new promotional partners with the station. Next, Joan welcomes Katie and Heather from Mushmina, a handbag company in Morocco, and gives their backgrounds and how she met them. Next Katie and Heather talk about how they started Mushmina and their focus on women empowerment. They talk about how they work with the women who work with them to better suit their needs, including letting them take their work home from the studio and working on it at night when their children are sleeping.
Katie opens the segment with Three for Three about urswim.com and what it does for kids. Next, Joan asks Heather and Katie when they realized that what their past work in the Peace Corps and their work with women and Mushmina could be used together. Heather and Katie talk about how they work together as business partners, and as sisters. They bring out two of the bags they’re going to give away, one this month and one next month, and talk about how their works draw influence from traditional Moroccan art.
Katie and Heather open the final segment greeting the audience in Moroccan, and they tell the audience, “Peace be with you.” Next Joan, Priya, and Katie welcome Crystalee from The Mama Ladder on the phone and they talk about “Mama Spring Break,” their company’s upcoming event. They end the show thanking Heather and Katie for their time and previewing future events and collaborations, and next week’s show.
