Freelance writer, former food publication editor and social media content strategist (Amber) tours the United States, interviewing entrepreneurs for a video web series called The BusinessMakers. After hearing countless stories of starting businesses, trials and triumphs, perseverance and passion, she thinks: “Maybe I should try this writing and social media thing as a business?” But also: “There’s no way I can do this alone.”


Enter Lauren McDowell, Peace Corps alum, Certified Cheese Professional and former Vayner Media editor, fresh outta New York and looking for a professional kickstart upon return to her hometown of Houston circa 2017.
