Meredith Bannon, Esq.
The Bannon Law Group, LLC

What mantra do you live by?
If it won’t matter in five months, don’t waste time stressing about it. I spend a lot of time talking clients through real estate transactions.Acknowledging the stress and bringing perspective helps us all.

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Nothing is better than playing tourist in our hometown. We will grab lunch at Coast, rent a couple of chairs and an umbrella and spend the day at the beach. Pure bliss!

How do you balance your work/home life, or is there even such a thing?
My husband, Jim, is my partner so, we have blurred lines as to home and work. Emma Grace creates her fort under my desk and lets Mom and Dad do their thing. She also enjoys raiding the soft drink fridge meant for clients.

What’s the one thing you want your child to remember about you?
That I love fiercely and strongly believe in fighting for what is right.

Apps you can’t live without:
I presently curate my Instacart with precision. I also live and breathe Facebook. Not sure that is healthy, but it keeps me in the know.

Charlie’s L’etoile Verte

What mantra do you live by?
Every day is a new day to do better and try harder.

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Paint and exercise

How do you balance your work/home life, or is there even such a thing?
The pandemic has definitely blurred those lines. Taking a phone call with two little ones is super difficult, but fortunately everyone is in the same boat and understands. We are all getting business done at all hours of the day, whether it’s in person or virtual.

What’s the one thing you want your children to remember about you?
I want my girls to remember me for my strength and perseverance. I am not living my dream life, but I work hard looking towards the future.

What is your biggest mom vs. career challenge?
Carving out real fun time is a big challenge. Although I have a very flexible schedule, I can’t take long breaks. We literally never go on vacation. So that’s something I am working to change. A week unplugged and focused on my family would be amazing.

Apps you can’t live without:
Open Table and Pulse give me real-time info about what’s going on at the restaurant. My daughter’s school keeps me informed via Flyer. I am a real gym fanatic, so the pandemic has forced me to adapt to home workouts. Seconds app helps keep me on-point with workouts.

What are the things that help you stay organized throughout the day and make time for everyone and everything?
I try to start my day at my easel around 5:30 a.m. and a workout to follow. It’s a time when I kind of think through the motions of the day and strategize how I can make it all happen. In the restaurant business, whatever you set out to do on any given day ultimately changes. I have to remain flexible.

Kathleen P. Mayers
KPM Flooring

What mantra do you live by?
Currently: It’s not how many times you fall down that matters; it is how many times you get back up.

Who has been your greatest inspiration?
My mom. She passed away last December, and her loss has made me realize what a profound impact she had on my life.

What business-related book has inspired you the most (or what is your favorite book?)
Again, speaking to my recent reads, Make Your Bed, by William H. McRaven

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Anything that can make me feel joy. I try to be in tune with what I need in that moment. Sometimes that is reading a book; other times it is working out, going to the beach, travel, cooking or baking, or having an adult beverage with friends. But usually it involves my daughters and four-legged children.

How do you balance your work/home life, or is there even such a thing?
I make time for myself before the girls are awake, and then when I am at work, I try to be present there. Once I come home, I am present for my girls. I am not a social media person. I would rather spend my time creating a memory or moment than perusing those of others.

What’s the one thing you want your children to remember about you?
That I really cared about them, my family, my faith, my coworkers, my customers, our planet. I want them to know I believed one person really can make a difference.

What is your biggest mom vs. career challenge?
Making sure that the people in each of these sections of my life know how much I value them.

Apps you can’t live without:
Duolingo

What are the things that help you stay organized throughout the day and get time for everyone and everything?
These days, the girls and I try to plan our week in advance. We have a calendar, and we sit down and talk about/pre plan (as best we can) our activities and our meals.

What is your favorite vacation spot?
Just about any place new. I have traveled to a number of places, and I think about revisiting some. But mostly, I am pulled to try somewhere new.

Afton Ryan
EGAN + ELLA Boutique

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Dining out at the myriad of delicious local restaurants, strolling down the streets of Old Town Bluffton, bowling with the kids, reading a good book, or watching a favorite movie.

What’s the one thing you want your children to remember about you?
I want them to remember that I always make time for fun. I try to sprinkle in as much spontaneous joy as I can! Life is too serious sometimes; the best moments are always the ones being silly and happy.

What is your biggest mom vs. career challenge?
Mom guilt! Questioning whether I’m present enough as a parent, falling short of expectations, or spending too much time on myself, are insecurities that I feel a lot of working moms like myself face.

Apps you can’t live without:
Instagram. It’s an integral part of my business but also a fun way for me to feel connected with my friends, family, and all things pop culture.

What is your favorite vacation spot?
Disney World. Being able to relive my childhood memories with my own kids is pure bliss!

Dr. Terri Hubbard
Coastal Pediatric Dentistry

How do you balance your work/home life, or is there even such a thing?
The challenging part is finding ways to be efficient in both worlds. That requires being able to come to terms with choices and focus on the priorities in the moment. I try to be truly at work when I am at work and truly at home when I am at home. I try to be more intentional about enjoying and making the most of the time I have with my children by not getting distracted by work-related things.

What was the best advice you ever received?
Best: When you try to control everything, you enjoy nothing. Sometimes you just need to relax, breathe, let go and live in the moment.
Worst: I make a point of not remembering bad advice.

It takes a village for any mom, but for a mom starting her own business, it must take a huge village. So, who are your go-to people/local services?
Most definitely, my incredible nanny! She spends hours caring for my children. She always goes above and beyond! They love her, and so do I. Also, my wonderful staff at the office. I value and appreciate every single one of them and their hard work and dedication every day.
Last but not the least, I am truly blessed to have fantastic friends who support me through all of life’s ups and downs.

What do you do to unwind and recharge?
My favorite way to unwind and recharge is to get in touch with nature. I find being in nature calming and restorative. Whether it is being on the beach, paddle boarding, or just hanging out with my kids outside. Spending time with good friends is also a great way for me to unwind.

What’s your favorite date night/vacation spot without your children?
Barbados. I have been fortunate enough to go with a group of friends to Barbados and unwind, and it was truly the best experience. We are now making it a priority each year to reconnect with one another at our favorite spot.

Kids: Wyatt 17, Sophia 13, Milo 15 months

Being a mom is such a huge responsibility. And it doesn’t end when we leave the nest. I still need my mom. When I started my business eight years ago, I called my mother every night for a month before opening and asked, “Mom, what if they don’t like it? What if they don’t like ME?” She always reassured me that I’d be fine, don’t worry, but what I was really asking was whether or not my lifestyle would fit into the conservative vibe of this island and whether or not the people of this lovely community would be able to rally behind that and behind me.

Fast forward to the present with my beautiful wife, my beautiful children, my beautiful life, and I think, how could I believe they wouldn’t rally behind this? This island has shown me and mine nothing but love and acceptance, something I think we can all agree is necessary in these tumultuous times. We all want to be seen. We all want to be heard. We all want to be accepted. I am so grateful to this community for supporting my business and being the village that helps raise my children.

We are not perfect. We are not scratch-proof or dent-resistant. But we are resilient. We are a home and a town and an island who can show up and support the greater good. I am grateful for those of you who have continued to support us throughout the years, and who have raised your families at our tables. We will continue to cultivate a place where you are welcomed with open arms and open minds, and we promise to continue showing up as our true selves for you and yours. Thank you for being there for us and ours. Kid tested, (my) mother approved.

Jane Misra
Dog People

What mantra do you live by?
I am a deliberate creator of manifesting destiny.

Who is your greatest inspiration?
My aunt, Jane S. DeHart. She taught me the true value of work, self-care, and beautiful environments. She is a bad ass in her world. She just wrote the biography of Justice Ginsburg!

What is your favorite book?
I am reading The Biology of Belief, by Dr. Bruce H Lipton, PHD. My favorite books are spirituality meets science.

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
I live by the motto: “Work hard, play hard, relax hard and make time for all.” My favorite recreational activity is listening to live music, and I miss it a lot!

How do your balance your home/work life, or is there even such a thing?
There absolutely is such a thing, and it is a core value in my life and business. I balance it all though realistic goal-setting, technological automation, and a whole lot of winging it and flying by the seat of my pants.

What do you want your children to remember about you?
Probably the thing I remember about my mom: just how very very much she loved me!

What is your biggest mom vs. career challenge?
The responsibility of raising positive, productive members of society and accepting that as I work, that can be delegated, and there will be some things I miss because of it.

Apps you can’t live without:
My CRM, Dropbox, QuickBooks online, Facebook and MeetEdgar. I can run my business from anywhere with Wi-Fi.

What are the things that help you stay organized throughout the day and make time for everyone and everything?
Lists, alarms, and repeatable schedules. I live by my notebook and my lists. I make a list for everything. I set alarms in my phone to not forget or build a new habit. I am a lover of flexible routines. I pretty much do the same thing every day and the task during each time bucket comes from the list.

What is your favorite vacation spot?
Since moving here full-time in 2019, I honestly do not know. This year, we are exploring Beech Mountain, NC.

Penny Vaigneur
Copper Penny

About Copper Penny
Native Charlestonian Penny Vaigneur, former model, breast cancer survivor, mother of three boys and philanthropist, opened her first store in Charleston in 1987. Penny was a stay-at-home mom who loved fashion. Her husband Fred was a commercial fisherman who shrimped and fished out of the local waters of Shem Creek as well as the coast of North Carolina and Florida until the industry was hit hard by new regulations. As the fishing industry changed directions, so did Penny and Fred. Together they rented a location in Mt. Pleasant and started a small ladies clothing business. The husband and wife duo worked long hours between caring for their three boys and building a new business to help support the family. This was the start of what now is known as Copper Penny.

Penny Vaigneur’s desire was to offer stylish on-trend fashions along with personalized service. She did this by creating a unique ladies’ boutique, offering a stylish yet eclectic mix of clothing, accessories and shoes. Personalized customer service has always been her priority and business model for Copper Penny.

Copper Penny Hilton Head at Shelter Cove Towne Centre began as a franchise location in 2015. In August of 2019, the Copper Penny Hilton Head location was taken back into the corporate structure and is now part of the seven family-owned-and-operated locations. It is locally run by Vanessa Hoffman, who started with Copper Penny Savannah in 2008 and maintained a relationship over the years with the Copper Penny family and clientele. In May of 2020, Copper Penny Hilton Head welcomed Jackie Lindstrom, who brings many years of fashion experience. Both Vanessa and Jackie are always available to assist you with your fashion needs. Stop in and let them help you, and shop designer lines like Trina Turk, Citizens of Humanity, Harper Wren, Tyler Boe, Maven West, Kinross, Michael Stars, Farm Rio, Paige Denim, Splendid, Belle Collection, along with popular accessory lines such as Farrah B, Virgin Saints & Angels, Shelia Fajal, Haute Shore handbags, and Whitley V, (a family-owned-and-operated jewelry design business, founded in 2010 by Vaigneur’s son Bryan and his wife Liz, and named after her granddaughter).

What led you to the women’s fashion business?
I was always interested in fashion. When I was a young girl, playing with dolls, the dress-up part was what I loved most. As I grew older, I went on to do other things but never lost that love for fashion. I wished I could have my own store but financially never thought it was possible.

How long have you been in this business?
Thirty-three years! Where on earth did the time go? When I think back to how we began, it’s unbelievable to me, the ups and downs we made it through. I feel so blessed to be where we are. I wish my mother and my father were here to see this.

What mantra do you live by?
I have a passion for my business. I love it and don’t want to miss a thing. I like to tell people to find their passion and live it.

Describe your approach to style.
Fashion changes every day. I stay up to date with what’s setting trends without being too trendy. For as long as I can remember, even as a young girl, I always had to have whatever the hot fashion item was at the moment. Whether it was the color of the year, shoe style or handbag. I carried that love for style into my business. I know what my customer is going to wear and buy accordingly.

Did you face obstacles as a woman in business?
Not really. I faced obstacles being a new person in the business. I went to market right away. I had been to New York before to help a friend buy for her shoe store but not to buy clothes. I used a buying service to get started, then went on to buy in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas and New York, and it all came together.

What sets Copper Penny apart from other boutiques?
Our customer service! We will gladly set up private, one-on-one appointments and also personal shopping appointments. We offer delivery drop off and send out approval boxes to include the newest arrivals and to allow our customers to try on in the privacy of their own home.

We get to know our customers as our friends and have established many long-term friendships. Our favorite part is truly caring about our customers, and it is very important to us they have a positive experience.

What is your philosophy in terms of giving back to the community?
I believe that giving is a great way to get to know a community and those who live in it. I am passionate about raising cancer awareness and supporting cancer research after losing my father and my two sisters to cancer. As a breast cancer survivor, I am an advocate in the fight against breast cancer as well.

Copper Penny is family owned and operated. You must be proud of your family for their contributions to the business and the community.
Yes. My sons Bryan, Blake and Ty are all involved in the business. Without them, my husband and I would not have made as much progress as we have. Our three sons continue to help us thrive with new innovative ideas including our website www.shopcopperpenny.com. Our family has grown over the years and both of my daughters in law are very involved in the day-to-day operations. I now have two granddaughters after having three boys and two grandsons. Who knows? Maybe one day they will love fashion and become a part of the Copper Penny team.

What do you most enjoy doing in your spare time?
I enjoy reading, beach trips with my family, and spending time with my four grandchildren. I love playing bridge and also baking. Truly there is not much downtime when you own a business. However, the rewards can be amazing, especially if you love what you do!

LUX ~ A Medical Spa

What business-related book has inspired you the most (or what is your favorite book?)
The Energy Bus is my most recent favorite book that has inspired me. It was recommended by one of my staff members and has been a game changer in our office. We have an amazing group of talented employees in all of my businesses. Making sure everyone is “on the bus” and ready for challenges ahead has been especially relevant during 2020.

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Most of my free time is spent with my husband, three girls, three dogs, and kitten. We do a lot of baking, soccer, ballet, and volleyball. When I get time for myself, I enjoy exercising at Burn Boot Camp. Since March, I have been doing Zoom workouts with the gym from my home, which has worked great for me. It’s nice to feel socially connected without being in the gym.

What’s the one thing you want your children to remember about you?
I want my children to remember that it is important to give back to your community by volunteering. I spend hours weekly volunteering for the Cross Schools board of trustees as the vice chairman. I have made this service a top priority and focus a great deal of my energy in expanding God’s kingdom through the school in our local community. I want my children to remember that the work I do is not always for my personal benefit, but for a larger cause.

Apps you can’t live without:
Waze, Accuweather, Tides Near Me, Instacart, TeamSnap

What is your favorite vacation spot?
My favorite vacation spot is Manzanillo. We usually go once a year and rent a home in this small, sleepy town on the west coast of Mexico. My sister-in-law and her family live there and own a small local pizza/sushi restaurant in the town. It is beautiful, peaceful, and truly a place where you can relax and refresh before returning to work.

I can’t pick just one thing! I hope they remember my sense of humor, my faith, that I always tried to help others when I was in a position to do so, that they are unconditionally loved, and that they can achieve anything they set their minds to in this life.

What mantra do you live by?
It is what it is. You can’t change it, so why worry about it?

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Boating and golf cart rides. Sawyer loves the water, so it’s always a fun family outing.

How do you balance your work/home life, or is there even such a thing?
What’s balance? As much as I would love to say I’ve got it together, I don’t. In addition to Lowcountry Yard Art, I have a fulltime job, so most days, we are just winging it. Luckily, my husband is always ready to help.

What is the one thing you want your children to remember about you?
I love to laugh and try not to take myself too seriously. We’re only here for a short while, so why not have a little fun?

What is your biggest mom vs. career challenge?
Trying to squeeze in as much family time as possible between jobs is a big challenge, but we always make the most of the time we have together.

What mantra do you live by?
Everything happens for a reason.

Who has been your greatest inspiration?
My mom. She always had it together taking care of me and my brother growing up, while also helping run our family’s business. She made it look easy. I now know it is not! Ha ha. She is still very helpful to me today. I honestly wouldn’t be able to do what I do without her help. Thanks mom!

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Going to the beach, Pure Barre workouts, and taking family walks with our dog Georgie.

What is your biggest mom vs. career challenge?
Wanting to be in two places at the same time. I absolutely love being with my children. However, I love what I do. Which means I also love being at work and helping customers. It is a constant struggle! However, with the help of our families and a great staff, I am able to do both.

Heather Nix
Realtor/Co-owner of Nix Flooring & Design, LLC

Who has been your greatest inspiration?
My husband Kenny. He is a brilliant businessman and loves what he does. I always seek his advice. He is extremely talented, and no matter what life throws at us, he prevails. He also never looks back … except to learn from mistakes and grow.

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
There’s not a lot of it. We are running two businesses. We are teaching our girls that if you work hard now, the reward comes later. Which is why it’s so important to really love what you do. 2020 has given me the opportunity to spend a lot of time with our daughters who have accompanied me on quite a few showings and virtual property previews for out-of-state clients. I wouldn’t be surprised if they ended up in home design and real estate as well. I’ll be honest; it would make us very proud if they did.

How do you balance your work/home life, or is there even such a thing?
Balancing work/home life has been much easier since our kids have grown into young adults. I’d be consumed with guilt if they didn’t have so much going on in their own lives. But between school and extracurricular activities (in a normal year) we don’t all see each other until late evening during the week. And there’s so much to talk about since we’re all so busy. We are a very strong family unit with individual aspirations. There’s a lot of support and encouragement.

What is your biggest mom vs. career challenge?
My biggest mom vs career challenge is without a doubt putting down my work. I’m guilty of doing deals at the dinner table. But real estate is a very time-sensitive industry. You can’t just dilly dally at your convenience. A home is typically someone’s greatest investment, and when you have clients, that investment becomes your priority. That’s what you sign up for. Luckily, my family understands. Mom and Dad have to work to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. That means stepping away sometimes to answer a quick call or send an email. There’s so much pressure on parents to spend more time with their kids. It’s not fair. Kids need to understand that life is expensive, and self-employment is demanding.

What mantra do you live by?
Perseverance, not perfection, is the key to success, especially in today’s world. The real key to success is the ability to keep going in spite of the setbacks we face each day.

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
We both are family-oriented, so you’ll find us spending time with family and friends! We are so blessed to live in such an amazing place. We enjoy life on the water—boating, weekends at the beach, and traveling.

What’s the one thing you want your children to remember about you?
We both had a dream and we made it our reality. You can do anything if you put your mind to it. We want our children to know we pushed through the trying times as our business began not long before the pandemic hit. Hard work plus determination pays off.

Apps you can’t live without:
We owe the majority of our growth to Instagram and Facebook! If it weren’t for these two amazing apps, our business wouldn’t have grown at the rate it’s currently growing. It’s been a huge marketing tool that we use every day.

How do you balance your work/home life, or is there even such a thing?
I work early, (while everyone is still sleeping); I have help and support and spend lots of time outside. I bring my laptop to my porch and set up shop at my table. Just being outside brings me balance, I don’t have an office inside. I also have the best teammates, partners, and husband I could ask for. I could not do a fraction of what I do without them.

What’s the one thing you want your children to remember about you?
I want my children to remember the happy times—the smiles and laughs, the music as much as the meatballs, the time on the boat and with family … simply being together. When they look back on their childhood, I want them to remember the fun.

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
If I have free time, you can find me on a boat, cooking, or playing the piano.

What is your favorite vacation spot?
I spent my childhood on the Chesapeake Bay and at the Jersey Shore! Now that we live here, I love going “home” and visiting all my favorite spots with my kids. When it comes to less “homey” vacation spots, I love the Florida Keys, and Colorado. Pre-COVID, I was a big fan of the quick drive to Jacksonville to jump on a long weekend cruise to the Bahamas. Not sure when that will happen again.
