When Erin Budde was asked to become executive director of stl250—the nonprofit created to celebrate St. Louis’ 250th birthday in 2014—the native St. Louisan knew it was an offer she couldn’t refuse. “The next time an opportunity like this will come up in St. Louis, I’ll be in my 90s, so I won’t be doing it then!” she says. “I love St. Louis and I have no intent of finding a home somewhere else.

The common wisdom is that people who love their work are those who find the most success. Here, we feature three women who prove that common wisdom right: By following their dreams, each built a business that has seen more success than most of us would dare to dream for. As John Updike once said, “The refusal to rest content—the willingness to risk excess on behalf of one’s obsessions—is what distinguishes artists from entertainers and what makes some artists adventurers on behalf of us all.”

Planning for your future can be a daunting and obscure task, but Wells Fargo Advisors is trying to make the process a little easier. With the use of the company’s Envision tool, financial advisors can help clients prepare for whatever unknowns life holds, says Kevin Whitehead, St. Louis market manager for Wells Fargo Advisors. “When you’re talking about money and things that may happen based on probability, it’s difficult because it’s not tangible. The Envision plan helps our clients see what they’re trying to accomplish, and we can make sure their investment plans are in place to achieve those goals.”
The youth served by Epworth Children and Family Services were tired of sitting in educational limbo each time they had to transfer high schools. For those in foster care, moves from one home and school district to another are not uncommon, but they meant waiting several weeks—and falling farther behind in classwork—while records were transferred. Those students decided to fight for a change, and with the help of Missouri State Representatives (and Epworth board members) Rick Stream and Jeanne Kirkton, Gov. Jay Nixon signed House Bill 1577 into law, expediting the transfer of high school records for foster care children. The moment, several years in the making, took place at Epworth, and its importance did not go unnoticed by CEO Kevin Drollinger. “One of the things we can do is empower youth and show them that they do have control of their environment and can have brighter futures. If they work within the system the right way and follow the path, they can move mountains.”
