Inspired by the vibrant entrepreneurial community in Austin, MOVERS + MAKERS set out to capture the stories of the creative, spirited people behind these brands and businesses.

During a time when entrepreneurship has felt more attainable than ever before, MOVERS + MAKERS hopes to inspire, motivate, and guide those who want to someday pursue a business of their own.

Through in-depth profiles, contributed stories, and intimate in-person events MOVERS + MAKERS hopes to build a community centered around creative entrepreneurship and supporting small business. Each of these stories of successes, challenges and everything in between proves that the journey of entrepreneurship looks different to everyone.

Take a look around, discover a business owner to draw inspiration from, and get motivated to start a creative, entrepreneurial pursuit of your own.




Hi, I’m Sam! MOVERS + MAKERS was born out of curiosity during a time when I was looking for career guidance. After struggling to find a job and feeling unsure of what I wanted to do with my career, the idea of pursuing something of my own started to look more and more appealing. And who better to turn to than local creative entrepreneurs? I'm constantly inspired by those around me, and my hope for MOVERS + MAKERS is to spread some of this inspiration to others who may also be looking for some guidance.

When I'm not working on the site, I spend my days writing, exploring, pursuing new creative outlets, and trying to finish my growing stack of books.
