"I wanted to share my experiences so that my readers would feel that they are not alone."
Mila Atmos is a columnist for Huffington Post, Quartz and Pesona—chronicling her journey towards identifying and fulfilling life’s potential. Her work is very much in line with Brené Brown, Gretchen Rubin and even David Sedaris. I was honored to build a home to house Mila's writing.

Beyond your résumé, what are some things we may not know about Mila?
I love to go to live performances. When well executed, live performance transports us into the story, and everything else in our lives is forgotten. It is an enhanced version of being in the present moment.
Why did you start writing?
I wanted to share my experiences so that my readers would feel that they are not alone. We all share common troubles and joys. I hope to touch people's hearts.
What's the best thing that's happened to you from writing?
Writing has provided clarity in my own thinking as well as liberated me from over-thinking too much. Putting my thoughts on paper allows me to get them out of my head.

What’s the best thing that’s happened to you from your new website, email or enhanced social media?
I love that everything is now funneled to one place (the website) and that spreading the word on a new column is no longer haphazard.
What's your advice to aspiring writers?
Why did you choose CSM to build your website?
First, Tony really understood what I was looking for. I think it is very important to work with someone who can make your vision come true instead of imposing his/her own ideas. Second, Tony is a joy to work with. He is professional, prompt, and always respectful.
What responses have you received from your new website?
Everybody loves it! The best compliment is that it looks “sharp” and captures who I am.
You are sharp, Mila—but in the best of ways! You softly cut away to the truth in your writing.
Thank you for choosing us to design your website.
