It’s a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together. Caitlin and Danielle feel that each day we wake up on this planet, we are given a gift to keep working towards our goals. No matter how small or how big your dreams are, Dolls everywhere must give their true calling some undivided attention!
If you love what you do, you will never work a day”
Once Upon a Dollhouse has been that true calling and dream career for Caitlin and Danielle. If you don’t already know, we run this online digital publication AND we help national businesses grow their social media presence through content strategy, photoshoots, social advertising, events and influencer relations. We built our business from the ground up and each day is truly a new adventure.
Most days, we awaken with an eager spirit, ready to tackle all the items on our “to do” list! There are others where we need a little Doll-spiration and we’re always grateful to have each other.
Our first morning meeting is always at the gym – we take our health and wellness very seriously. From there we could go to a photoshoot, a blogger brunch, client meeting, or a coffee shop to work. With each day completely different from the next – we both craved structure for our growing business. So, we did what any best friends would do and talked about it! It was officially time to move the Dollhouse Media Empire to a space that makes sense.
We are now working from the most beautiful and inspiring co-working space, Co-Optim. The owners of this co-working space specifically picked every detail for the office, the same way the Dolls pay attention to every detail of their looks.
The office décor is vibrant, creative, and professional. The board rooms are sophisticated glam, the meditation room offers a moment of zen, and the wine bar provides a moment of bliss (and networking) after your work day.
I never dreamt of success. I worked for it.” – Estee Lauder
Every time we walk in, it gives us the same feeling of picking the perfect outfit but also nailing our accessories. Co-optim has locations in Deer Park (a suburb of Chicago) and the West Loop, across the street from Ogilvie Transportation Center and French Market. Lunch is always so flavorful with so many options right across the street. The West Loop location is where you can find the Dolls brainstorming, creating and working in luxury.
Stay humble. Hustle. Be kind.
