We had the good fortune of connecting with Lili De La Cruz and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lili, what’s the most important lesson your business/career has taught you?
The most important lesson my business has taught me is that it’s not for everyone and THAT’S OKAY. I remember at first I was trying to please everyone and create things others would like but once I got in tune with what I liked to create and realized that it’s not for everyone it actually gave me more confidence. I now make things I enjoy and I I’ve found my tribe that appreciates what I do and supports every launch. Our business won’t be for everyone and THATS OKAY, we will continue showing up for our “internet tribe/besties” anyway.

What should our readers know about your business?
I started while living overseas and when I returned I continued making and now with every purchase help women and girls overseas. I will be returning back overseas and I’m excited to join the maker community there.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If my friend was visiting the city I would take them to eat at First Watch, go to a pop up market to support small businesses, attend Fuego Church in Red Oak, walk through Bishop Arts and have bottomless pizza at Deluccas for dinner!
