Dear Pennies & Pens,

So I completely forgot to mention it but Team ISLP has grown! For those that don’t know, ISLP is my lifestyle production company. In fact, we are the publisher of de la Pen…All Pen Everything. So basically, we’re the ink behind this page.

Team ISLP includes myself, Renee Jones, our Associate Editor and Producer, and Melissa Necey, our Editorial Assistant. We’re a pretty dope team if I do say so myself. Although ISLP is based in Dallas, Renee lives in St. Louis and Melissa lives in Nashville. That said, we use Slack to communicate and collaborate on projects. I would highly recommend it to my fellow entrepreneurs who are looking for an organized way to communicate with their team. But let me stop babbling and introduce you to Team ISLP.
