My name is Kristal Mallookis and I’m a work-a-holic. I started Mustard Lane in 2007 when I was 24 years old. I had a big vision and a lot of guts so naturally I just hit the ground running. Mustard Lane has since grown in a very organic way and as I reflect on the process it all seems like a dream…the best dream in fact!
If you know anything about me you should know that I love everything about business, the good, the bad, the hard. It is important to embrace all of these things when you are an entrepreneur as you are forced to be on your toes at all times, ready to ride the highs and lows that fill up each and every day. Recently, I have found that celebrating even the smallest things makes difference in my current flow personally and professionally.
My puppy just took a huge poop
My internal team just came up with a new service that could be a game changer in the event industry
My husband has mastered his air-fried chicken wings
I just opened a delicious bottle of nebbiolo for no reason
Another random person ordered a Virtual Telegram .
I want to take the opportunity and celebrate a little more, just because I can.
I’d like to celebrate our non-profit, Off The Lane! This organization currently has so much momentum and I’m so grateful for every person that is involved between the board, the co-chairs and the mentors!

Keep your chin up and stay positive friends. That’s an order!
