If you know me, you know I’m a big time supporter of shopping local. This came about initially because of the creative endeavors of my friends and family…but when I became a realtor, turns out I attracted industrious, artistic, entrepreneurial clients as well. Soon I was surrounded by hardworking, authentic folk making a living making – using their skills, hands, and hearts to bring quality goods to the people. It’s not an easy living, but it’s easy to support them. And during 2020, it became even more critical that we boost local talent to help them through one of the toughest economical challenges in our lived history. I’m proud to support small businesses, because not only does it keep our local economy afloat, it also promotes a vibrant, ethical marketplace of quality skills and goods. Here’s my 2020 list of 50 small businesses who need your holiday $$$: in no particular order, mostly Portland (but a cheeky handful of OR/WA artists, too), with recommendations from friends, family, and clients on great items for gifting under $50. Even if you only purchase from 1 or 2 of these vendors, you’re making a big difference in their economic survival. Cyber Monday is on the horizon, so take advantage of any sweet deals and offers that may be available:

1. Amelia: An amazing array of jewelry, décor, and knick knacks, many of them under $50. A client recommended the mini diamond skull studs, $32 in silver or bronze. Skulls are never out of style, and you could be THE coolest aunt, ever, if you pop a pair of these beauties in your witchy niece or nephew’s holiday stocking this year. Bonus: free shipping for $25+!

2. NoniMagic: At $12, the Ouroboris Trio bath bomb set is an affordable buy. And if y’all’s bath time self care is way up this year (ahem), it’ll be a very well received gift.

3. Girl Meets Dirt: I’m a little bit fascinated by this award-winning jam and preserve farm on Orcas Island across the way from Bellingham, WA, based on their intriguing range of small batch flavors, perfect for your holiday charcuterie board: Lavender Rhubarb. Quince Marmalade. Shiro Plum with Mint. Even if jam ain’t your…jam, I’m pretty sure someone in your family would love to be the recipient of one of these. Jams and preserves range from $12-$14 and up, and there’s gift packs, too!

4. DanaHerbert.com: You know I love locally-made/woman-owned, and a friend brought this one to my attention, recommending the gunmetal magnolia earrings for $45. Psst: you can also get face masks here, with $1 from each purchase going towards Oregon Food Bank!

5. Envoûter: This candle maker is brand new to the market, and already rocking our worlds with scents like Bourbon + Honey, and Spiced Pumpkin + Blood Orange. YUM.

6. Kindred Kid + Baby: Woo! This one you can get 30% off your purchase until Nov. 30th (Cyber Monday), so if you know someone who has had a Pandemic Baby (ie: 70% of your friends list), here’s an excellent ethical and sustainable baby goods and décor option. My buddy recommended a gift card towards their gorgeous indigo plant-dye quilt.

7. HeArtByCody: My friend’s fave from this whimsical artist is this cute crow mug – $15, and an easy way to buy some affordable art and inject a lil’ color into a loved one’s morning coffee ritual.

8. TheHomeBodyGuild: Quirky cute fashion accessories, like lobster or corn earrings, or this INCREDIBLE POM POM PHONE COVER for around $22?

9. Asiyah Rose: I’m OBSESSED. Try the Spa Day, Oud Bae, or Exotic Trip scents of these luxe candles, locally made by a rad woman of color, and you can thank me later. $40 and up.

10. Helen Rose Skincare: Deep Moisture Skin + Hair Oil, Grapefruit. $25.

11. Sweet Home Alberti: Oof, you’ll simply love their macramé coasters, $25 for a set, and bound to attract attention. 20% off the entire shop until November 30th, y’all!

12. Claws Out: 40% off storewide until Cyber Monday AND each color polish donates to a different non-profit. Plus free shipping over $30. Ahem, get to it. Some of you may relate to “Exhausted Empath“.

13. Portland Syrups: Plump up the bar cart for the holidays. Hibiscus Cardamom syrup is just one of the delightful-sounding flavors, $14.

14. Little Bright Studio: Fiesta Gold + Orange Dangly Earrings, to make a cheerful statement. $35.

20. WokeFace: WokeFace BNTY Glass Pink + Purple, $12.

21. MatthewMatthewMatthew: Need a high end shank? Just make sure to okay it with mom and dad before gifting this to a minor. $49.

22. Nutcase Helmets: Typically $70ish, there’s an awesome bike helmet sale for $35 apiece right now. Give the gift of a safe noggin for the holidays.

23. Hustle Home Decor: Um, check these adorbs brass + macramé ornaments for your holiday tree, $36 for a set of 3.

24. Forge + Fire: What, you didn’t think I was gonna list a shitload of earrings? Do you even know me? $46 for these pretty pretties.

25. Arq: An underwear revolution. $28 for these high rise undies, worth every damn cent. Lots of color choices, and, leopard print. 😉

26. Snappy Rockfish Soap: Quality, organic soaps made with love from a local maker – try the Coho Princess (nothing fishy, promise) – and currently on sale for $7 a bar, so great stocking stuffers!

32. Madina Designs: A fave on the summer street fair circuit, these gorgeous earrings are made by a local woman of color, and they are badass and super affordable, starting around $18 a pair. Love these lunar cycle earrings for $28.

33 – 35. Built Oregon: Handmade porcelain pour-overs for $42. Salsa gift box for $16. Cute watermelon onesie for $20. So much cool locally made stuff in this online market run by BIPOC.

Must LOVE dogs – Seeking an Executive Assistant! https://laurengoche.com/must-love-dogs-seeking-a-personal-assistant/ Tue, 24 Nov 2020 17:16:16 +0000 https://laurengoche.com/?p=23581 I am a self-employed Realtor with a very busy life.  I am seeking someone who can not only help bring order to my days but has a passion for this kind of thing. Our personality match will be imperative for this role as we will work closely.

The post Must LOVE dogs – Seeking an Executive Assistant! appeared first on Lauren Goché.

]]>
I’m extremely active in the community and always working hard to create a better life for myself and those around me, which means I have a considerable amount of “busy work” as a result. I consider myself kind, easy to work with, and I have a direct communication style

This job will include a wide variety of tasks, from professional to personal. As my assistant, you will likely never have two days that are exactly the same. However, many duties will be everyday duties. My two dogs are my babies; one is still very much a puppy and the other is getting on in her years. An undying love for dogs is a key trait that is a MUST for this role.

Job Duties (including but not limited to):

  • Dog care – feeding, taking to groomer, managing vet appts and emergencies, keeping food stocked, dog park visits and dog walking
  • Business assistance – putting up directional signs, ordering sign posts to be installed and also picked up, getting keys made for clients, working with contractors on quotes,  scheduling appointments including contractors, inspections, and staging/photographers, finding and creating content for social media
  • Personal assistance – arranging travel, car upkeep and maintenance (oil changes, tires, detailing, etc), maintaining a calendar of special events, sending out greeting cards, choosing and delivering gifts, researching items I need to purchase, handling returns, scheduling doctor appointments

Your qualifications, in order of importance:

  1. Love dogs! And shopping!
  2. Ability to complete tasks with minimal supervision
  3. Excellent communication skills
  4. Have your own transportation
  5. Highly organized and tech savvy
  6. Thrives in a support role and appreciates what it takes to keep a business moving 

You must be self-motivating and capable of working with minimal direction. It is also important that you are observant and extremely organized and able to prioritize, yet agile and flexible enough to shift gears and move between tasks quickly. Previous experience in management, with pets, or as an administrative assistant are bonuses, but not required. Since this is a new role you can expect me to regularly give feedback while we iron out the kinks. 

Hours are flexible, expect approximately 15-20 hours per week, but it will often include weekends.

$25/hour to start.

 

To apply, please send your resume as well as a paragraph or two introducing yourself.

[contact-form]

Outdoors is a super cool shady patio and garden area with an air of privacy, bigger than you might expect for a condo! Here you’ll be able to BBQ, gather with friends and family, string up a hammock for lazy summer evenings, and build your garden haven. And the best part: the location is bananas. A bike score of 95, access to shops, restaurants, Alberta St., the food cart pod on Mississippi Ave., Victoria Bar…this vintage cutie is something to get excited over!
