Getting to Know You is your introduction to our new Scoutie Girl contributors. We’ll be running these over the next few weeks. Today, enjoy getting to know more about Eleanor Mayrhofer!
Why do you DIY?
Excellent question, that I haven’t thought much about until now. I’ve always needed to figure out and do things on my own and I do not like to be told. It’s not flattering to say, but I’m not always a good team player because, well, it depends on the team! I believe in asking for forgiveness instead of permission and that has always served me well.
What are you MOST passionate about right now?
Growing my business, finding my creative voice after years of shaping it to fit whatever corporate activities required, and frankly, making bank.
What do you have in common with Scoutie Girl readers?
I am utterly overjoyed about the rise of the DIY/creative/indiepreneur/unconventional/life design/whatever-you-want-to-call-it movement and thrilled to be a part of it. I’m currently living by my own lights and going through all the glory, terror and satisfaction involved, and loving every minute of it.
What would Scoutie Girl readers be surprised to know about you?
I’m kind of a homebody and an introvert.
