March is Women’s History Month, and March 8 is International Women’s Day. The campaign theme for 2019 is #BalanceforBetter—meaning that “a balanced world is a better world.” We agree. #BalanceforBetter asks us to celebrate the achievements of women and girls, increase awareness of bias, and take a stand against social injustice. After all, women's rights, gender equity, and the #MeToo movement are not just women's causes. Social parity benefits us all, so men should embrace #BalanceforBetter right alongside women.
#BalanceforBetter is a wonderful theme. Let us explain why we love it and how we see it in as integral to Little Colorado. Read on to find out why.

We are excited to share the news about Kiersten's forthcoming talk at TEDx Sedona next month, "Become the Carpenter of Your Life." As she will explain there, "becoming the carpenter of her own life meant doing things she never imagined and discovering buried truths along the way." Eleven years ago, this 34-year-old ex-TV network executive & mom of two unexpectedly went from corporate to carpentry. She faced the typical entrepreneurial challenges as well as personal personal realizations that rocked her world. It's an amazing journey. We applaud her entrepreneurial spirit and her fearless advocacy.
We thought this was a great time to republish our interview with her from earlier this year. Enjoy the incredible backstory behind our Mod Mom furniture.
