  • HAVE SOME FUN TODAY - You know that innate feeling you get that if you push a little harder or dig a little deeper, you just know you're going to do "it"? "It" could be nailing that interview, or pushing that extra mile during your morning run or sealing up that job promotion. You've worked hard. You know it's going to happen. You're determined and fierce. That is powerful stuff. And that is powerful enough to propel a rocket into space, launch big ideas into bigger realities, and help inspire one woman to start a "mindset" brand in a small town of PA. 

    Show 'Em What You're Made Of 

    It's grit, and guts and tenacity. And that, we know, is one of the biggest influential factors in succeeding at anything. A recent article in Inc. magazine, "How Grit and Determination Exceed Talent and Intelligence Every Time" exposes the idea that working hard and being persistent are powerful forces in our success. 

    Have Some Fun Today was started on those same principles of grit and determination. HFST Founder Stephanie Rado Taormina is a do-it-all kind of entrepreneur. She's set her sights on being a global brand. A global "mindset" brand with a positive message and a community who follows. 

    "No matter what success means to the individual, studies actually show that those who exhibit more "grit" and persistence have a better chance of reaching milestones and exceeding personal goals. And guess what? Grit, like many other competencies, is something that can be developed with practice."  -Brent Gleeson, Inc Magazine

    One Brick At A Time 

    It's not always easy being a one-woman-show. On any given day, she's packing up her car with HSFT gear for an event, looking over the books, writing checks, implementing new designs, checking emails, creating looks for her social media accounts, and hand-packing orders from her website. She often squeezes all that in before noon. Sometimes it's overwhelming. And she's the first to admit, it doesn't always all get done. 

    "A lot of stuff falls through the cracks, because it's just me," Stephanie says in the upcoming YouTube episode of HSFT: Building a Brand With Soul. In this episode, we see her spending a much-needed afternoon in her PA studio, getting caught up with the many tasks required to run a company. 

    It's All About The Details

    She still sees clients with her interior design business, is a single mom raising two daughters, and tries to find time to work out and keep healthy. She likes keeping her hand in all details of HSFT, big or small, because after all, it is her vision. And it's a vision she fiercely protects as she builds her brand. 

    "I actually write a little thank you note on most of the orders....," Stephanie says in the upcoming vlog. "....I really try to add a personal touch to everything that we do, to make people feel special for buying Have Some Fun Today."

  • Here’s a little story we’ve got to tell….

    So we've been working up a little something at the HSFT studios that we're beyond excited to share with the world. Today we officially launched the First Episode for our new vlog series, Have Some Fun Today: Building a Brand With Soul, Episode One "It Started With A Vision". We think the story of how we came to be is a really good one and it makes us who we are, a brand with soul. 

    Have Some Fun Today is so much more than luxury goods with a positive message. It’s the legacy of a father’s love, it’s the mission of one woman to change the world, it’s a “kick-your-ass-claw-your-way-to-success” kind of story.

    It Started With A Vision

    We hired an amazing videographer, Patrick Corcoran, who followed us around with his camera for a while and helped us capture the essence of what Have Some Fun Today is all about.

    In Have Some Fun Today: Building a Brand With Soul, you’ll see the blood, sweat, and tears of manifesting an idea, with a fire in our gut and sheer determination. You'll see that time we hosted a Happy Hour at Facebook. Or the time we got lost in Philly on our way to an event. Real life. Real heart. A real brand, with soul.
