Taryn and Kelsey are a dynamic sister duo who are in the midst of creating something incredible and completely unique to the Black Hills. The two of them saw a need in Rapid City for a place where moms can come to support other moms while their kids play. The idea evolved into an indoor playground where children and adults alike can be present and engage with one another, and it’s become the mission of Taryn and Kelsey to bring this concept to the Black Hills of South Dakota. “It’s not a would, it’s not a should; we have to do this.”
In this episode, Taryn and Kelsey chat about this passion project, when they plan on opening their doors (hint: soon!), and how they sought the support of family, friends, other businesses, and community members to make this dream a reality. Among the many women in whom they’ve found tremendous support is Michelle Kane, our podcast guest from episode 10. They also found inspiration from Samantha Smeltzer in episode 4 when she said, “I don’t want to have to keep validating my career because I had a ponytail. I couldn’t ever be enough, I couldn’t be smart enough or witty enough. Nothing made my career what I wanted it to be other than saying, I just have to do my own thing.”
I wish everyone could’ve seen how much I nodded my head during my chat with Taryn and Kelsey because they were right on! It’s impossible not to share in the excitement of their new venture when you hear this conversation, so grab a cup of coffee and tune in to the full episode below!
