Meet Corinne Hone, Lydia Martinez, and Cali Warner
Why We’re Giving Back
We’re proud, Utah-based small business owners who are lucky enough to have amazing supporters, mentors, clients, and community around us. We’ve been pretty fortunate! So now it is time to pay it forward and give back to our amazing local business community.
Meet Cali Warner | Capture Haus
Cali Warner is an entrepreneur at heart, starting her first piano studio business at 13 years old. As an internally performing concert pianist, Cali soon traded her grand piano for camera gear and was instantly in love with the ability to create beautiful imagery for others in a meaningful way. As freelance photography morphed into a photo and video-marketing production house, it now serves small businesses, restaurant franchises, and companies locally and internationally. Cali is a new mom of one adorable 2-year-old with another on the way.
“Having the right people around you is essential to growing a successful business to the next level. Being someone who was guided, mentored, inspired, and uplifted by great people in my business journey, I am grateful to be able to pass it forward and help amplify the dreams of others.”
Capture Haus specializes in video marketing strategy and brand photography, creating stunning imagery for small businesses worldwide. Video is great, but video with strategy aligns with your growth goals-that’s where video become video assets. Pictures say a thousand words, and every business is REALLY in the business of telling stories. How are you telling yours?
Meet Lydia Martinez | Elle Marketing and Events
Lydia Martinez is the founder and CEO of Elle Marketing and Events. An entrepreneur at heart, Lydia started her first business at eight years old, selling tree-climbing lessons to neighborhood kids. After tackling over 11 years in strategic marketing, branding, social media, and event planning for powerhouse retailers Barnes & Noble and Whole Foods Market, Lydia decided to get back to her entrepreneurial roots. Lydia launched what was to become Elle Marketing 2009 purely as a consulting business on the side. However, in 2015 she left her corporate career to become a full-time entrepreneur. Since 2015, Elle Marketing has grown into a full-service creative marketing agency with a team of 25. While she now prefers to climb cliffs in her spare time, you may still find her willing to show you how to climb a tree.
“When I started my business, I was fortunate to have some amazing people supporting me – from mentors, coaches, fellow entrepreneurs, and clients. All of whom helped me when I was new at this gig. I understood marketing, but I didn’t know how to be a business owner. They helped me through the crazy ups and downs, and their generosity is literally why I’m in business today. I love this entrepreneurial community, and it only makes sense to pay it forward now!”
