Hello Neighbor!
I have many fond memories growing up (pre-kindergarten) and lying on the carpet in front of the TV in my childhood home, my unicorn (“Uni”) in one hand and an apple juice in the other, watching Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood as my mom was in the kitchen either cooking or tidying up the house and my sister was at school. I LOVED everything about that show. Being that I was a very hyperactive kid there was always a certain calm that came over me while watching it. I loved how Mr. Rogers would get frequent visits from the postman and other folks in his neighborhood. At a young age this small detail instilled in me the belief that being part of a strong community is so important.  
Flash forward to today, we are now lucky enough to have our office in sunny Los Angeles, which is such a treat! There’s so much talent bubbling in our own close-knit neighborhood, and in the spirit of Mr. Rogers’ spotlighting everyday standouts I thought it would be fun to introduce you to some of the friends in our Los Angeles neighborhood and give you a peek inside their creative worlds. We hope you are as inspired by these incredible women as we are! -Laura ODell

Get to know Brandi:

1. Tell us a little about yourself and some of your career highlights.

I've spent 20+ years supporting new families in the earliest years of parenthood. This path of entrepreneurship has turned into supporting people in creating a bigger and bolder vision of what they can do, be, and accomplish on their journey. I am a mom of three who splits time between Los Angeles and Southern France. I am the founder of The Cradle Company, an LA-based pregnancy and postpartum resource agency since 2008 and Brandi Jordan Official, a mindset and business strategy consultancy. My new baby + mom skincare line is launching in Fall 2022.

2. What's one thing you are proud of having been able to manifest in your lifetime thus far?

I am proud and grateful for manifesting a life where my family and I get to travel the world together. I did a vision board in 2015 and set intentions with friends that my children would be able to see the world. Since then we have lived abroad in Thailand, Vietnam, and France. A girl from the hood in Houston has been able to "literally" give her kids the world. I am proud of myself for that. 

3. Where's one place in the world that you haven't traveled to yet but is on your bucket list?

I want to get to Cuba! I am an avid salsa dancer and history buff. I can't wait to dance and read myself through Havana.

4. What's your favorite color and how does it make you feel?

My favorite color is probably green (but honestly I have soooo many faves). I feel joyous, vibrant, and abundant in green.

5. Reading a novel that sucks you in, watching a compelling movie, or going to an amazing live concert? Which do you pick?

Oh, honestly I always believe I can have it all. I'll watch a movie in the middle of the day, read a book while my hubby gets ready, and then get dolled up to head to a live concert that evening. I think we deprive ourselves way too much... I'm gonna indulge when I can, and whenever it feels right! I'll also be going for a late nightcap with friends after the concert, lol!
