Ep.6 : Blending Business and Family with Alison and Allison

Sharing is caring!

Work life blend

Alison Qualter Berna and Allison Schlanger met during a parent/child music class with their twins (yes, both ladies have twins and their names are Alison/Allison – it was meant to be).

They were frustrated when resources for their children were not readily available. They decided to create a space for families in their neighborhood where they all wanted to come (both children and adults) and stay for a while. So they built apple seeds.

10 years later, they have multiple locations in New York City and have created a music franchise called songs for seeds, all while raising 3 children!
