Welcome to From The Basement Up
Meet the groundbreakers and community makers. This podcast is for those thinking about starting a business, branching out on their own, or creating something for their community. Hear from people who tackled their biggest fears and got their grit on. Learn how they are redefining success and creating inspiration for others to do the same.
Hi, I am Michelle Brandriss. A wannabe artist turned biz-gal. Over a decade ago, I quit my job in advertising and started a successful kid’s name label company.
I started this podcast with my niece, Emily Flanagan, our Project Captain and Editor-in-Chief of From the Basement Up. As a recent college graduate and current grad student, Emily was willing to take on this project with me as a creative break from her studies.
This podcast is our passion project together to inspire people to follow their own paths and start their own business or non-profit.
