Lorinda, is one of those women who not only stands out but encourages you to stand with her. If you aren’t empowered by her influence then you need to turn up the volume. We are living in times where everyone is constantly competing with one another. It’s nice to know there is someone like Lorinda who is willing to dig deeper and venture out of the shallows to draw from the most unique inner parts of our individuality.

Wilson Capron - Capron Bits and Spurs 

April 2020 marked 21 years of me being in business. Lorinda and I were introduced when she placed and order for some spurs.  Lo politely informed me she had never heard of me and that was a problem.  There hasn’t been a day go by since our introduction that she hasn’t been trying to fix that for me. Lo’s guidance and support couldn’t be better. In the short time she has grabbed the wheel of my marketing train the response has been huge!  I can’t wait to hear her next idea for our future.

Lorinda is a joy to work with, her energy and passion are contagious.

In both situations, she was black and white, to the point and respectful. All of the things I value in business dealings.”

She was willing to help me execute and because of her help I was able to accomplish my goal!What I appreciate most about working with Lorinda is her determination to get the job done!

 

 

Kerra Elizabeth McAhren – Western Horseman Makeover Winner

Life’s gotta funny way of keeping score. Meeting the ladies behind what was once Gypsy Soule, undoubtedly lit up my scoreboard. Inspiration and change can come from so many places: music, people, and circumstances. For me, it was in a beautiful hotel room off the strip of Las Vegas. Lorinda, Co-Founder of Gypsy Soule showed me how poignant and power a woman could be if her heart was set on something she loved.Life can change so rapidly. In the blink of an eye it can go from good to bad. It can also turn around just as fast. I watched incredible women have to walk away from something they had worked so hard for. The one thing I kept thinking was “gosh they never stop fighting to be better and they never stop moving forward.” They have used this experience to not only grow, but also rise from this and create a new path for themselves. I hope to be half as strong as they are.With Lorinda’s help I have changed from a “plain Jane” kinda girl, who was just taking life as it came, to this woman who is trying to reel in big fish two at a time. People may attribute this transformation to the makeover and fashion show Lorinda put together for me, and that’s ok. Really it was in her Las Vegas hotel room, over a crown and seven up in a Starbucks cup. Quietly listening to what was happing to the women of Gypsy Soule, what they were going through and how they were handling it. These women I admired so much, ultimately changed how I looked at life.
