    Our podcast today is with the founders of Riad Tile, a patterned cement tile company owned by married couple Kale and Aubrey Butcher. The pair live in Dallas, mere miles from our HQ. So we invited the parents of three into our studio to tell their inspiring story that is very different than most we've featured.

    More times than not, our guests are entrepreneurs or employees that have fallen into a path that they've cultivated or wanted to explore from an early age. But Kale and Aubrey started a company they had no clue about out of a personal need and desire to put something in the world that they felt needed to exist after searching high and low for it with no luck.

    A few years ago our company was at an identity crossroads. Known at the time as The Dallas Flea, we were finally ready to take the leap and bring our pop up events to other markets but we felt that our name might not jive in, say, Houston (shocker). The name also didn't jive with longterm avenues we wanted to test from e-commerce to small biz conferences and podcasts.

The 42-year-old creative director of One Kings Lane has funny stories to spare and a warm quality about him that might be the reason the polar ice caps are melting.

    It all started with an Instagram post.

    Alli Koch was looking for a job after graduating from college when she posted a photo of a word painting she’d done and caught the eye of a friend. That friend wanted Alli to create one for her. And then that friend’s friend wanted one as well. Before she knew what was happening, Alli had so many orders she could no longer look for a job. And then she realized: She had a job!

    We met Judy and Jane Aldridge at a dinner party. We immediately knew they were members of our tribe. And when when the mother-daughter duo agreed to be speakers at Flea Style Summit, we went over the moon.

    Judy is the founder of Atlantis Home, a popular blog she launched eight years ago to express her love of food, fashion and home décor. You know Jane from her ground-breaking blog, Sea of Shoes, which she started when she was still in high school as an "outfit diary." This was before fashion blogging was even a thing, and it captured the attention of fashion editors and designers far and wide — and it inspired an entire generation of female bloggers. We can't even imagine what fashion blogging would be today were it not for the spunky redhead with a closet full of fancy kicks.

    These ladies are B-U-S-Y, but lucky for us, they had a few minutes to answer some fun questions about getting started, how they spends their days and where they like to shop. They are a wealth of knowledge and going to have one rockin' panel chatting about blogging and branding.

    Read on and come to the Flea Style Summit to get to know them even better!
