Go Behind the Scenes

Our blog series Building the Unconventional takes you behind the scenes of building a creative business from scratch.

The Blog

The Lounge is a blog where I write about anything and everything to do with the life and business(es) of a creative entrepreneur.

It is a place for creative thinkers who are always starting something new, and are serious about their side projects. And their cocktails.

You’ll find a wide range of topics here but there are two key themes they all have in common: they are Uncensored and Unconventional.

So if you are easily offended, you are in the wrong place.

Join the Conversation

Join Our Facebook Group

Community has always been vital to the success of everything we’ve done. Our goal is to be part of the conversation in order to empower, involve, engage and connect with a diverse audience of creative thinkers such as yourself.

If you’re looking to surround yourself with driven entrepreneurs who have one thing in common - that they are not common - then you’ve found your home.

We'd like to invite you to join the Unconventional Creative Facebook Group and be part of the conversation.

Karma

Friday Faves: Sriracha Salt

By Jen Basford

As it turns out rice does NOT actually make birds explode as once rumored, but for many reasons it’s not really a popular choice for wedding sendoffs.

The Spicy Mezcalita

The Spicy Mezcalita

By Jen Basford

This month for Cocktails + Creatives I’m branching out a bit into an area I typically avoid: Tequila. Wish me luck.

Peace the Puppy

Friday Faves: Delicious Chihuahua

By Jen Basford

Last year Nancy and I went to Sacramento for a wedding. Which basically turned out to be a 3-day bar crawl with a cocktail party (the wedding) thrown in.

"We're driven by the pursuit of new ideas.
We aren't looking to 'keep up with the trends' - our job is to invent the future and lead the way."
