Neighborhood Expert: Spotlighting Two Local Businesses — Tangible Designs and DC College Counseling

Laura Schwartz is a licensed Realtor in VA, D.C. and MD with McEnearney Associates in Vienna. You can follow Laura on Instagram at @LauraSchwartzRealtor or her Facebook page. Laura can be reached at 703-283-6120 or [email protected].

I am part of a group of women who came together out of the Vienna Moms umbrella to form a weekly group of female entrepreneurs who meet to talk about all things business and motherhood.

I have become friends with many of the women, and I love supporting what they’re doing. This week, I’d like to take the opportunity to highlight two of them for you:

Tangible Designs, Emily Yahn

Emily Yahn is one of the most talented marketing brains I have had the honor of working with.

Full disclosure: Emily did all of my branding — my logo, my slogan, my website, my buyer and seller guides and my brand book so I know what colors and fonts to use when creating marketing materials.

She is amazing. I am wholly left-brained, so I gave her a concept I had in mind, and she ran with it. She’s worked with brands like DirecTV, the Gates Foundation, Bards Alley and DC College Counseling…

DC College Counseling — Colleen Paparella

I’m a few years away from having a kid apply to college, but I will be using Colleen to help when the time comes. She’s commonly featured on USA Today, CNN, The Washington Post and other publications on college admissions topics.

Her skill is combining strategy and execution to help get kids through the college application process. She has different packages depending on your level of need — whether you need a one-time consult, college essay assistance or the full monty of handing over the entire management process.

Follow DC College Counseling on Instagram at @DCCollegeAdvice for weekly college admissions updates, tips and tricks!

Both of these businesses are Vienna based, and both are led by fantastic humans. I hope you’ll consider them for your needs!

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
