Today’s spotlight: Colleen Tebrake
Two Sister Bosses
Background: Tebrake co-founded Two Sister Bosses, a Sedona-based hotel development and management company that is focused on creating sustainable, one-of-a-kind experiences that are in harmony with the natural environment. The company’s first project is Ambiente, a Landscape Hotel, the first of its kind in North America.
Professional advice: “Don’t be afraid to set the bar high and dream big. It’s okay to fail, because that’s where you learn the most. Failure is part of the process of learning to be successful.”
Lesson learned in 2020: “This year, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, has taught me that although I can’t control everything, I can manage my reaction to what’s happening around me. I have grown keenly aware of what I control and what I don’t, and that no one but me is responsible for my response. I am the only person that can decide how I will move and respond to things in this world. There is something strangely empowering about that.”
Surprising fact: “I have a MacGyver alter ego! I can figure out and fix most things, whether it comes in a box with a million pieces or it’s something that breaks and can be taken apart. I’ll figure it out!”
