Our annual Create & Cultivate Style Summit was one to remember leaving everyone motivated to take their career(s) to the next level. Each year, we leave the Houston Galleria with an even bigger and better experience than before. Influencers both big and small arrived at Houston’s go-to culture hub ready to learn, network, and gain wisdom from influencers we’ve grown to love over the years proving that there’s no such thing as an overnight sensation.

Top 5 Mic Drop Moments From the Day:

  • Agatha Ashiofu: Find your passion! Once you find it, the rest will unfold.

  • Agatha Ashiofu: Plan and do the work— Sometimes you have to sacrifice fun for long term success.

  • Sarah Adam Hafez: Whatever your definition of success might be, you have to put that as a priority. Life is too short to wait and say “what if”— Just start and take it slow.

  • Lee Anne Benjamin: In the beginning, I was afraid to share raw moments and what made me unique. Be yourself/share those raw moments. Those are the days where I get the most engagement.

And last but not least, our Keynote Audrina Patridge left us with a charge to:

“Get a lawyer up front, especially one that specializes in your industry.”

Fun fact, did you know by day, Agatha Ashiofu is an account and Jaserah Asadullah is a Petroleum Engineer Technologist? Seriously, women do it all and these ladies make it look so easy.
