Call in to speak with the host
Join Anna K. as she interviews Kathryn Zimmerman, owner of The Style Co. "I came to Galveston, TX when I was only 8 months old and spent my childhood here. But after graduating from college, adventure was calling my name! I spent five years traveling all over the world working on a yacht (thanks to the suggestion of my uncle). But in 2007, I finally decided to hang up my deck shoes and come back to Galveston.
I got another degree, but found myself working in retail at The Style Co., a women's clothing boutique located in Galveston's East End Historical District. I was working two jobs while looking for what I call my "big girl job" when the opportunity to buy The Style Co. literally fell into my lap, and I took over ownership Nov. 1, 2011. It was both one of the happiest and scariest days of my life. Looking back at my journey I had no idea I would own my own business. I had spent years floating along with no real direction. I know now that every experience and path I've taken has led me to this very point...home and I'm exactly where I should be. I have no idea if this is what I will do for the rest of my life, but I'm content and the happiest I've ever been. Bring on the the future... I'm ready and excited to see whats next!"
It's good to talk.
