    A writer turned fur mom is sharing the heartfelt story of the pup she adopted — emotional baggage and all — with an important lesson about kindness and empathy. Keep reading for all the tail-wagging details.

    Danise DeStasi

    Danise DiStasi has been a professional writer and involved in leadership development and coaching for more than 20 years. However, that came to a head in 2013 when she adopted a dog named Louie. 

    “I soon discovered that Louie brought a lot of emotional baggage to the relationship,” she explains. “He demonstrated behaviors that deeply concerned me, and I was not sure I wanted to keep him. I quickly realized Louie needed acceptance, consistency, discipline, and – above all – unconditional love. Louie was a struggle but I made the choice to keep him. I also had to intentionally choose to love him despite his baggage.”

    It’s Louie who inspired her to launch Unleash Love, an organization whose mission is to eradicate bullying from the classroom to the board room. “We offer a compendium of material all based on our rescue pup, Louie,” she says. “All three books, Lead Like Louie, Love Like Louie, and Louie’s Little Legs, share the same messages.” 

    Those messages are to be a loving person by being kind, patient, etc,; to not see others as objects; and to understand there’s always something unknown in other people’s lives.

    Unleashing Love started when DiStasi started sharing with friends and clients the crazy stories about her dog. “They were not your typical dog stories, they were leadership lessons wrapped up in funny and heartwarming stories about the transformation of this little dog and his crazy owner,” she says. “That;s when I started blogging and eventually put the blogs into a leadership book, Lead Like Louie.”

    From there, the story evolved into her writing a book for kids her granddaughter’s age and then another book for younger children. 

    “Louie continues to provide material on a regular basis,” she adds. “He loves visiting schools and nursing homes and is a walking testimony of the transformative power of love.” 

    Part of the message behind Unleashing Love is the mission to eradicate bullying. “We hope this book creates a-ha moments for children and the parents who read the book with them,” explained DiStasi. “In the grander scheme of things, if we could all take a moment and realize that everyone has some struggle going on before we jump to conclusions, we might make an impact in our world. Before judging anyone, be kind, don’t make assumptions, and take time to understand others. It is an age-old lesson but one that is desperately lost in the noise of our world today. Perhaps a lost rescue pup with little legs and behavior issues could change the world.”

    DiStasi says that she and her granddaughter Evi are working on Love! Laugh! Lead? For High Schoolers. “The Louie Crew also has two more books in the works for the Louie’s Little Legs series of 12 books: The Magic of Patience and The Magic of Perseverance.

    To learn more about Unleash Love, visit unleash-love.com. The hardback of Louie’s Little Legs is available there, as well as Love Like Louie and Lead Like Louie.

    On Amazon, the paperback version of Louie’s Little Legs is available as well as Love Like Louie and Lead Like Louie.

      A local non-profit organization wants to recognize and highlight women in the film industry. Click here to read more and hear about an upcoming, outdoor, socially-distanced event.


      Women in Film is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping women achieve their highest potential with the global entertainment, communications, and media industries. In what has always been considered a male-dominated industry, women have had their turn at making an impact in the media world.

      Aymie Majerski

      To bring local women the opportunity to advance themselves in the industry, Women in Film established its own Cincinnati chapter in 2016.

      “WIF Cincinnati is a community of creatives dedicated to celebrating and advancing the creative and professional development of women in the region working in film, television, and digital media,” says Aymie Majerski, Executive Producer at Barking Fish. 

      The mission behind Women in Film Cincinnati is to create networking and professional development opportunities, screen members’ work and highlight member achievements, appreciate the art of film and educate the community, develop and access funding for member projects, and to promote equality for women in the industry. 

      The inspiration behind Women in Film mainly comes from the funding of creative projects, as it most often serves as one of the most difficult aspects. “We want to provide local filmmakers with resource options when looking to fund a project,” says Majerski. 

      To help continue to support filmmakers and creatives in the industry, Women in Film Cincinnati is hosting the Better Cities Film Festival on Sept. 26 and again on Oct. 3.

      “We’ll be screening 20 short films over two nights, all of which have been featured in the Better Cities Film Festival,” says Majerski. “WIF Cincinnati selected these 20 for their relevance to urban issues we face here – making Cincinnati more bike and pedestrian friendly, increasing affordable housing, minority entrepreneurship, racial equity, and building sustainably.” 

      On Sept. 26, films by women make up the entire first half of the program and the second night of screenings also features women in half of the films shown. “We want to highlight women working in the industry, as it’s an important part of WIF Cincinnati’s mission,” says Majerski. 

      Tickets for the event at $10 and you can bring your own blanket and chair. The event, being held at Hollywood Drive-In, only accommodates about 40 vehicles, so buy your $25 ticket before they’re gone.

        This Labor Day, we’re featuring local go-getters who are putting in the work to make big things happen for our community and beyond. In this feature, learn about a local restaurateur who is taking on the reigns of her father’s legacy - amid a global pandemic - and making an impactful legacy of her own.

        Britney Ruby Miller is here to continue her father’s legacy, even if that means adapting in unprecedented times during COVID-19. 

        When the coronavirus outbreak first began, restaurants across the state shut down. “When the Jeff Ruby family of restaurants were focused to close due to restrictions back in March, it was the saddest day in my father’s life,” says Britney Ruby Miller, CEO of Jeff Ruby’s. “He started this company four decades ago and now that I am leading the organizations, I knew it was my duty to make sure our restaurants, and the restaurant industry, survived this so they could be around for the next four decades and beyond.”

        Ruby Miller feels that supporting the restaurant industry and ensuring its survival is not just carrying on the legacy of her father, but she’s also here to serve a duty to the employees who have helped grow the company to what it is today.

        When the COVID-19 pandemic was in its earliest stages, the survival of the industry was all Ruby Miller could think about. “Since mid-March, I have connected and worked extensively with other restaurateurs, the Ohio Restaurant Association, and built relationships with elected officials at the local, state, and federal levels,” she says.

        Her local impact may be much more evident than we think. In fact, Ruby Miller served on Governor DeWine’s Restaurant Re-Opening Task force. 

        “Our work provided the reopening blueprint and protocols for the industry in Ohio and also served as the basis for other states’ plans as well,” she adds. 

        While the future is unclear, and 2020 has proven that, Ruby Miller says that she knows the determination of the restaurant industry can power them through these troubling times. 

        “What I can say is the restaurant industry has grit and fervor and where there is a will, there is a way,” she says. “Our hope is that our elected officials continue to use facts and date to drive the decisions that affect so many people affiliated with our industry. “We strongly believe that by masking up, following the safety protocols already in place, and being vigilant, we can continue to make progress. Ultimately, we can’t do anything without the support of our loyal guests and we can’t begin to say just how much we appreciate their gracious support over this period.”

        Most recently, Ruby Miller was named to the board of the Ohio Restaurant Association. “Britney represents a family business that has grown into a multi-state fine dining group,” says ORA president John Barker. “She also serves on Governor DeWine’s Restaurant Advisory Group and is very active with the ORA, advocating with elected officials in D.C., our state capital and Cincinnati.”

        In the times since the peak of the COVID-19 outbreak, Jeff Ruby’s has reopened all of its restaurants 7 days a week, with the exception of Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse Columbus, which is open Tuesday through Sunday.

          We chat with the local woman behind a new business that’s a “Beautique” and glam party on wheels bringing shopping, makeovers and empowerment to your front door.

          Ready for a night that’s all about you? Looking for just the right outfit or skincare routine to boost your self-esteem? That’s what Wonderfully Made Beautique and Glam Parties is here for.

          Wonderfully Made Beautique and Glam Parties is a pop-up shop boutique that offers personal beauty concierge services and glam party packages. 

          “Our services include personal styling sessions and makeover/skincare applications and lessons,” explains Owner Kim Taylor. “We also offer an online boutique where you can shop and book your appointments.”

          All of the glam parties offered consist of shopping, makeovers, and even princess parties for kids, and are provided in the convenience of clients’ preferred locations. 

          Taylor says her idea for Wonderfully Made Beautique and Glam Parties came from her lifelong passion for fashion and self-care. She’s also been the go-to for her friends when it comes to her sense of style and her beauty regimens. 

          “This alone inspired me to want to uplift, empower, and educate women by sharing knowledge and helping them build their self confidence in finding their own taste of style, beauty, and fashion,” she says. 

          Years of working in retail educated her on working with women to help them build up their self-esteem. She also noticed the lack of knowledge when it came to selecting the right self-care regimens for their personal needs. “By observing these needs, this created an opportunity for me to structure a business with purpose,” she says. “Wonderfully Made Beautique and Glam Parties thrives on building personal relationships as well as serving others.”

          This platform, she says, is rare in the retail industry. Rather than focusing on sales like many big box stores, Taylor is able to help her clients look and feel good physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. 

          “This is what I enjoy the most, on top of personally selecting unique pieces,” she says. “In all, my main focus is to not only deliver excellent products and services, but to create a memorable, life-changing experience.”

          In addition to private pop-up glam parties, Wonderfully Made Beautique and Glam Parties also attends other events such as festivals, corporate events, concerts, girls night out parties, church events, conferences, and more. 

          Currently, Taylor is working on finding funding, sponsors, and investors to help her in expanding her business.

            As we navigate a new normal with COVID-19, we're finding new ways to get back to things and people we love. Read on as we chat with a local entrepreneur who recently launched a socially-distanced dining experience to safely celebrate life's important moments with small groups in a big way.


            The world is a much different place than it was at the beginning of the year, and the ability to gather like we once did is no longer an option. As we remain focused on keeping each other healthy and stopping the spread of coronavirus, we’ve suffered in other ways. 

            For some, dining out with friends and family is a beloved pastime that we’re unsure of when, or if, we’ll be able to do again. To help soften the harshness of not being able to go out and enjoy large dinners, Lindsey Huttenbauer of The Lindsey Baer Company launched L-EAT (pronounced ‘elite’), an elevated and socially-distanced dining experience for your inner circle of family and friends.

            “We promote intimate bespoke dinners for small gatherings with your nearest and dearest, with contactless service right to your doorstep,” she says. 

            The inspiration for L-EAT came from our sudden shift in socializing and the limitations that were put on something we once took for granted. 

            “Entertaining may have changed in recent times, but we all still want to be surrounded by those we love, now more than ever,” says Huttenbauer. “’How do we do that?’ is a question that we are often asked so we wanted to provide a new offering to allow our clients to enjoy one another in small groups while keeping social distancing in mind. Suggested seating options and other helpful hints are emailed following a purchase. We will also include social distancing signage along with a few other safety guidelines and tips in each meal kit. All staff, from the chefs and designers to delivery teams, will be following the recommended CDC safety guidelines while preparing each element of your experience. This includes wearing face masks and gloves, frequent hand washing, and social distancing from one another.”

            Huttenbauer teamed up with other experts from the entertainment industry including Renee Schuler from Eat Well Celebrations and Feasts, Maya LaLonde from Olive Street Creative, Kristen Folzenlogen from Poeme, and Kristen Sekowski from Yellow Canary Floral Design.

            The concept behind an L-EAT dinner is not just dinner but an experience. Dinners are $1,200 for groups of 8. The package includes place settings, custom dinner napkins and individual potted herbs – both favors for your guests, a festive playlist, personalized paper accents including menu and placecards, hang tags, custom cocktail napkins, social distancing signage, and more in addition to a delicious summer menu with hors d’oeuvres, salad, main course, and dessert.

            “We also include the option for additional florals and wine pairings from our Drink Spotlight Hart & Cru,” adds Hattenbauer. “The idea is to provide the host with all the needed elements to produce a lovely evening with little effort.” 

            Orders can be placed at lindsebaer.com/leat and are available for hands-free delivery Friday, September 4, or Saturday, September 5 only. Orders must be placed no later than Wednesday, August 26, so that the team has time to personalize each bespoke package. “Delivery is complimentary and only available within a 30-mile radius of downtown Cincinnati,” adds Hattenbauer. 

            You can learn more about L-EAT here. You can book a dinner by sending an email to L-EAT@lindseybaer.com

              One of the biggest markets is back for its first in-person event of the year. We chat with the founders to learn what’s new this year and how they’re keeping everyone safe. Read on for a peek inside this event that features unique, vintage, handmade and repurposed furniture, home decor, gifts, and more in a picturesque, open-air farm setting.

              Charm at the Farm aims to be more than just a market, they want to offer an experience for customers and vendors alike. Located on a formerly award-winning 56-acre Clydesdale horse farm, Charm at the Farm is a vintage market that will be hosting its first in-person event August 21-23. 

              Jayme Kuenkel, co-owner of Charm at the Farm says the event features unique, vintage, handmade and repurposed furniture, home decor, gifts, and more in a picturesque, open-air farm setting.

              Charm at the Farm is typically held three weekends per year in June, August, and October, however, the June event was held online due to COVID-19. 

              “We are so excited to open the farm gates for August,” says Kuenkel. “We have been working closely with the Warren County Health Department and are implementing several new health and safety guidelines in alignment with the state’s recent mask-wearing mandate for Ohioians.”

              Kuenkel says this event, presented by Blume and Fleurish, features vintage pieces, clothing, furniture, and home decor from more than 115 talented artisans and shops, and 25 of those are attending Charm at the Farm for the first time.

              This Augusts’ Charm at the Farm event is offering a few firsts for guests, including an “early bird” admission ticket option for Saturday morning only. This gives guests the chance to shop early and also encourages staggered entry for social distancing. 

              “There will only be a limited number of both Saturday early bird and Friday night VIP tickets available, so snatch them up quickly if you want them,” adds Kuenkel. 

              VIP and early bird tickets include complimentary re-entry for the entire weekend. 

              Other new things coming to this market include an expanded variety of food trucks serving everything from coffee, tacos, BBQ, pizza, kettle corn, and more.

              All tickets for Charm at the Farm must be purchased online in advance only for this year’s markets as the team works to maintain social distancing and other health and safety guidelines. 

              Friday night VIP tickets for Charm at the FArm are $15, Saturday early bird tickets are $10, and general admission tickets are $5. Parking at the market is free. 

              Charm at the Farm is located at 4953 Bunnell Hill Road in Lebanon. You can view vendors, find answers to frequently asked questions, and purchase tickets at charmatthefarm.com.

                A local woman is opening up a new salon that not only beautifies clients, but also showcases and supports other locally-based woman-owned businesses. Read on for all the details.

                Photo: Madison Borland Photography

                Melanie Scheel wanted to create a space that stylists can call home, a space that isn’t what you’d expect a salon to look like. At Gloss, you’ll find a high-end hair salon with a laid back vibe. 

                “You can come here to get swoon worthy locks while hanging out with a group of stylists who love and support each other and love nothing more than to make you feel like part of the family,” says Scheel.

                The aesthetic of Gloss is different from what you’ll find at many salons, and there’s a big emphasis on teamwork. 

                “We root for each other, we teach each other, and if you leave to pursue a different dream, it’s still your home base if you need or want it,” she adds. 

                Scheel, also known on Instagram as @the_balayage_mermaid, says her salon will open its doors on August 11. 

                Once the salon opens its doors, Scheel will offer the latest color and extension techniques, in a casual and fun environment.

                “Want your favorite celeb’s hair? Come see us at Gloss, no trip to California necessary,” she adds. 

                Additionally, Scheel wants to support local small businesses at her salon. She plans to carry locally-owned products for clients to shop while they’re there. She says she’s starting with Green Bee, a local, woman-owned beauty company.

                Gloss is located at 7251 Beechmont Avenue in Anderson Township. You can keep up with the salon on Instagram and Facebook.

                  A local woman launched an organization dedicated to helping children battle life threatening illnesses, and leaving a legacy by making them the superheroes of their own stories. Click here for all the page-turning details.

                  Photo: Angie Lipscomb Photography

                  Sarah Curry Rathel has been working with children battling life-threatening illnesses since 2004. 

                  “I’ve met hundreds of sick children from around the world,” she explains. “None of them asked for these terrible and scary battles, yet they have no choice but to face them. Some are born fighting for their lives and never know anything other than being sick. Others experience a trauma or the onset of an illness and the life they knew changes instantly. Either way, these kids go through so much that other children, and even adults, don’t understand. Yet, they still want to laugh and be ‘kids’ just like everyone else. Their hearts are pure but they are put into a life that isn’t conducive to just being a child. They deal with the effects of steroids or chemo, they have tubs running in and out of them, they need oxygen to breathe, feeding tubes to eat, and wheelchairs to move. Even though this forces them to become ‘old souls’ in a way, inside, they are still innocent children.”

                  The desire to help these sick children be children is the inspiration for Curry Rathel’s nonprofit organization the Smile Books Project.

                  The Smile Books Project is dedicated to bringing smiles to children suffering from life-threatening medical conditions. 

                  Curry Rathel, alongside her illustrator and co-founder Robert Kelly, create personalized books to make each child the main character of their own heroic story, with the sales of each book being donated back to the child. 

                  “Smile Books Project doesn’t keep any money raised,” says Curry Rathel. “By doing this, not only can we share the stories of these heroes, lift their spirits and even their legacies, we can also help raise money to support them.”

                  Together, Curry Rathel and Kelly work with the families of the children they write about, which she believes is what makes the Smile Books Project so impactful. 

                  “These books become such a huge success when the community rallies behind the kids and puts that extra support in place,” says Curry Rathel. “Working with children all over the world has allowed us to see the power behind strong communities and that is something I wish everyone could see. The love and support these kids feel through their own book is priceless.”

                  Curry Rathel wants to do her part in making a difference in the lives of children with life-threatening illnesses by bringing a little joy to their lives with these books. 

                  “Not only do we bring smiles and give these children an outlet, but we share their messages and leave their legacies,” she says.. “One of the most heartbreaking things I have been told by children is that they are afraid people will forget them. This book helps ease that fear if that is their situation. For the parents we have written books for, we give them the chance to share things with their children who will grow up without them. These parents share with us only things they would know or be able to tell their children, including words of advice and wishes for the future. For both children and parents, I’ve seen the relief that this brings. As truly devastating and heartbreaking as it is, this is one gift we can offer them in a creative way nobody else can.”

                  Also, the Smile Books Project writes books about courageous adults with terminal illnesses to share their leagues with their children as well as for organizations to spread the word about their work, when possible. “With any book we do, proceeds are donated back,” adds Curry Rathel. 

                  Curry Rathel says that the Smile Books Project is always taking referrals. Currently, she’s in the process of starting a book for a little girl born with a rare disease and a little boy with a rare form of cancer. “Both of these children are under the age of 5 and have already gone through more than most people will their entire lives,” she says. “We can’t wait to share their stories with the world.”

                  New books for sale are featured on the Smile Books Project website. There, you can view the project page to meet the inspiring children, adults, and organizations we have written books for and purchase a copy there.

                  You can find the Smile Books Project on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. There are also blogs and stories about the books they write on their website, smilebooksproject.org. “After a long day and in the world today, there is something inspiring and hopeful about those we write about and we hope that anyone following the Smile Books Project feels hope just by reading along,” adds Curry Rathel.

                    With spending more time at home than ever before, you may be itching for a change. We chat with Montgomery-based Build Collective about the local housing market, and how not even a pandemic has slowed this one-stop-shop for buying, selling, and building.


                    When it comes to real estate in the Greater Cincinnati area, whether you want to build or buy, Build Collective wants to be the team you turn to. 

                    “Build Collective is a one-stop-shop real estate team,” explains Build Collective’s Marketing Manager Becky Mannix. “We are a full-service firm that assists buyers, sellers, and custom building clients with every step of the process.”

                    At Build Collective, clients find a range of services that include listing sales, home buying, land and lot acquisition, market evaluation, architecture design consulting, builder selection, and everything in between. 

                    The goal at Build Collective is to make the process of buying, building, or selling a home a lot easier than what you would find somewhere else. As one of the top sales groups in the Tri-State area, Build Collective and its team led by Mike and Bill Hines prides itself on the quality of services they provide. 

                    The history of Build Collective dates back to 2011 when Mike and Bill Hines, former land developers, wanted to create a business that was designed to assist buyers build a custom home and acquire the best lots in town.

                    “Our specialized construction and development experience, not to mention our more than 30 years of relationships with virtually every builder in Cincinnati, has uniquely qualified us to best help buyers build their dream home,” says Mannix. 

                    In the midst of COVID-19, real estate has been deemed an essential business. Therefore, Build Collective has continued to work with clients on buying, building, and selling needs. 

                    “Listings are still out there, so we’re available to help you buy or sell if you need to,” says Mannix. “We’re going to make sure we take care of you.”

                    As they work with clients during these unprecedented times, the Build Collective team ensures that they are following all local, state, and federal guidelines. This includes limiting the number of open houses so that there is less traffic and movement in homes that people are still occupying and to reduce the number of people visiting homes that are newly constructed. Additionally, Build Collective has used their camera, Facebook Live videos, and even done walk-throughs on phones with clients so that they can have better visuals on the homes they’re interested in buying since they can go inside. 

                    Of course, all situations are handled on a case-by-case basis, since no two situations are the same. “All decisions are made to help protect clients and the company, so if you have a question, please reach out to us so that we can make a decision and take the best plan of action,” says Mannix.

                    Build Collective is located in the heart of Montgomery, and prides itself on their location to serve clients in top markets and areas that revolve around the I-71 corridor.

                      Let the stress melt away with a mini vaca like no other, just a short drive north to Granville, Ohio. See how two retired road warriors turned their knowledge of what makes an excellent excursion into one of the best bed and breakfasts in the world.

                      Jeff and Bobbi Noe are the husband and wife team behind the Welsh Hills Inn, a place TripAdvisor and Select Registry says is one of the best bed and breakfast in the world. Yet, it’s just a short drive away to Granville, just outside of Columbus. 

                      “There are over 5,600-square-feet of accommodation with wide plank, heart-of-pine floors, large guest rooms and suites, luxurious bedding, and spacious bathrooms,” says Bobbi. “antiques, oriental rugs, and an extensive collection of eclectic, original artwork adorn the Inn and guest rooms. Since opening the doors of The Inn in September 2010, we’ve been privileged to host guests from all 50 states and 27 countries around the globe.”

                      The Noes say they were inspired to open the Welsh Hills Inn after they caught the “bug” of staying in small bed and breakfasts and inns while traveling throughout New England, more specifically Martha’s Vineyard and Maine. 

                      “In the back of our minds we always thought ‘maybe someday,'” says Bobbi. “Well, when we were looking for a home in Granville back in 2007, an 18-month adventure to find just the right place, we were looking for a property where ‘someday’ we could open up a small inn. That someday came a little over three years later, in September 2010, when The Welsh Hills Inn opened its doors to our first guests.”

                      The former road warriors had finally fulfilled their dream of opening an inn and haven’t looked back. They love having the opportunity to provide their guests with a relaxing getaway on a beautiful property. 

                      According to Jeff, the best time to visit the Inn is from May through early fall, when guests can relax and enjoy the outdoor heated pool and courtyard garden. 

                      “Our tagline is “Relaxation. Redefined.’ and that’s what we aim to offer — whatever your idea of relaxation is, we want to offer that to you in the absolute best way possible,” says Jeff. “Kick back in the Adirondacks and enjoy a roaring fire in the outdoor stone fireplace nestled next to the woods. Watch the sunrise in a rocking chair on our wrap-around porch. Explore the wooded hiking trails, stocked fishing pond, lighted clay bocce ball court, target range, and clay shooting. Have some quiet time reading in one of our shaded hammocks or take a dip in the pool.”

                      They also offer on-site professional massage services with aromatherapy, tension relieving hot river stone therapy, Swedish relaxation, deep tissue massage, and reflexology in the Inn’s Trem Pell Studio Spa. There are several packages available through the Inn that include couples massages, a babymoon package, and even an intimate wedding package.

                      There are many amenities available for guests at The Inn including spacious guest rooms, en suite bathrooms, a full gourmet breakfast, plenty of outdoor living options, and more.

                      When asked what they enjoy the most about running Welsh Hills Inn, they said it’s their guests who make their business so great. “Hands down, the people that we have been privileged to meet over the course of the last 10-years who come from all walks of life,” says Jeff. “So many have become frequent, returning guests over that time and brought us heartfelt friendships. We’re now at the point where, many times when The Inn is full, it’s like having your friends and family come to stay. We get to be a small part of so many special times in our guest’s lives – anniversaries, birthdays, reunions, lifelong friends gathering together, intimate weddings, elopements, proposals, and so much more.”
