  • Tell us a little bit about yourself and your journey.

    Hi, I'm Claire Wasserman and I'm the founder of Ladies Get Paid a global community and platform that gives women the resources and support to advance professionally and financially. I also have a book coming out on January 12, 2021!

    I started my career as an independent film producer in Bosnia. There was a guy I'd met in college who was writing a film and I said, What the heck let's just go for it and we actually ended up being nominated for a student Academy Award. But my concern was that making a film takes a very long time. It's also an financially unstable path. I looked back at my high school experience my college experience and I realized that something that I was extremely good at that I really enjoyed was making projects happen, primarily through raising money.

  • How did 'Hey Moon' begin?

    I had been making ceramics for about 5 years and had a lot of vessels kind of piling up. I bought a starter candle making kit and made a few candles in the vessels I had. Then a good friend (who owns Little Sister salon here in Austin) asked me if I would consider making candles to sell in her shop. That was maybe 5 years ago? I’ve lost track of time!

    Was creating heavenly-scented candles always in the cards for you?

    It’s been a long road to where I am now. I never, ever thought I would be a candle maker!

    At a glance, what does the process of bringing to life one of these look like?

    It’s a lengthy process! Every vessel I make I throw on the potter’s wheel. Then I trim off the excess clay, dry, kiln fire, glaze, fire again, then pour the candle. After that, the candle needs to cure for about 2 weeks.

    What kinds of scents are currently on the roster?

    I’m always experimenting and changing the scent line up. I personally tend to go for really earthy and woody scents so many are in that family (Mesa, Tarot Den, Palo Santo, Wildwood). I also love florals (Dark Rose, Fields, Vetiver), and slightly unexpected fruity scents (Fig Harvest, Pomelo, Bergamot). Read more

  • Hey gal! Tell us a little bit about you.

    I am a full time model, and the daughter of a photographer and a musician. Because of this I have always been in a creative environment which has now inspired me to create my own clothing line - make sure to stay tuned on my instagram! :) @zohara_even

    What does confidence mean to you in this day & age?

    To me to be confident is to feel completely strong and comfortable with myself, both mentally and physically. It means allowing myself to be happy with the decisions that I make and not feeling vulnerable to external judgements. Having a good support system of friends and family is so important to boost my confidence level, and I am beyond grateful for that.

    How do you face obstacles or personal challenges with grace?

    When I am faced with a challenge my first reaction is often to overthink the situation. Recently I’ve learned to take a step back and look at the bigger picture, while I still analyze all my options and outcomes I've learned to give myself some more breathing space and acknowledge that personal growth also comes out of challenges that come my way.
