The Story Behind #15: Puppet Freedom

Illustrated by EEK.

I feel that we always want what we can’t have and we rarely count the cost of desires. Take startups, for example: demanding hours, the multiple hats you must wear, smaller paychecks and less time with your family — all in the hope that maybe someday you will hit it rich and can cash out. Our desire to break away and blaze our own path or try something new is important, it keeps people curious and independent. But it needs to be met with pragmatism and tempered expectations. Most importantly, people need to remember to not leap before they look, even if they’re leaping for something they want so, so badly.

A big chunk of taleas’ merch is hand made, hand printed, hand stitched, hand sewn, hand glued or some combination of the above in Austin, Texas. I have a strong passion for solid business ethics, scalability, sustainability, and repeatability, and all of these drive the quality of products that I offer.
