Tina Roth Eisenberg was chugging along in her career as a designer… and then her daughter was born. She realized she had not yet become the kind of woman she had hoped her children would know. She immediately delved into a career as a serial entrepreneur that now includes an impressive group of “labors of love.” In this talk she shares five rules that have helped her launch businesses like Creative Mornings, Tattly, and Studiomates, among others. Each was a side project that stemmed from a personal frustration. “I have a rule: If I keep complaining about something, I either do something about it or let it go,” says Eisenberg. The result: a group of projects that reflect the values dear to Eisenberg, most importantly using business to positively impact the lives of others. Whether it’s through having a confetti drawer, keeping sane hours, or building environments that cultivate enthusiasm, Eisenberg urges us all to judge our success with the happiness and personal growth of those around us. “While I really love my work, my work is not me,” she says.
