Female Founder Feature: How Autumn Tyler of Kepola Design House used her Passion to Start a Business from the Ground Up.
This week in our Female Founder series, we have a chat with Autumn Tyler, founder of Kepola Design House, a natural and sustainable lifestyle brand based in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. The truth is, sometimes the universe stages its own interventions. When you’re not being true to yourself and following your true path, somehow the universe seems to give you a little push to move you in the right direction. That is exactly what Autumn experienced when she lost her part time job and decided to take a risk by turning her dream into a reality. For more on how she started her company from the ground up and how she finds inspiration in the hustle and bustle of the day-to-day, check out our conversation below!

5 Reasons You Should Go For It: Turning Your Side Hustle Into Your Full-Time Gig
It has become pretty unusual these days to meet someone who doesn’t have a passion project or side hustle outside of their day job. It can be hard to feel completely fulfilled by the grind of the traditional 9-5. A recent survey from the Hartford found that 57 million people own a side business that isn’t their main source of income.

To kick off our series, we thought it would be fitting to share a candid conversation we had with a true inspiration in every sense of the word. When we started Canary + Co, we were drawn to the free-spirited, entrepreneurial mind-set of Amelia Earhart. So much so, that we named Canary + Co. after her first plane, The Canary. While we would love the opportunity to sit down and chat with Amelia Earhart herself, we opted instead to have a conversation with her niece, Amy Kleppner.
