Kristy Owens, Founder of 365 Austin
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, and what you do with 365 Things Austin?
I’ve been in Austin for 15 years now, and in a past life I was a Realtor. I originally started 365 Things Austin in 2010 as a resource for my (very few) real estate clients. Now 365 Things has become my full time gig. I love living in Austin exploring it with my friends, family and my dog, Brady.
How do you find the time to create, nurture and maintain work relationships, while finding the time to pursue your interests outside of work? Any time management tips?
For me work/fun is such a blurred line. I am lucky enough that at more than half of my 'work' functions I can bring a friend along so it kills two birds with one stone. As far as time management, I am a HUGE advocator for being an early riser. I start my days at 5:30am so that gives me a few hours of ‘me’ time before diving into my workday.
Best trip you’ve taken and why?
My entire extended family and some friends went to Europe for my parents' 30th wedding anniversary, and it was amazing to experience so many cool things with such a huge group of people I love. However when I start looking back on past trips, they have all been fun, and they each bring different experiences! So its hard to pick just one!
Any tips you have for traveling?
Ha, bad question for me. I am the worst at over-packing and under planning. I love to just go with the flow.
How do you wear/style your SUAVS?
The thing I love most about my SUAVS is they can be styled so many ways. I wear them as street shoes with leggings to/from barre, go sporty with jeans and a causal shirt, or even toss them on with a cute denim skirt and graphic tee for another look.
Speaking of traveling, they’re a great shoe to take on a trip because they are so versatile.
