Topaz Panina Meow Meow
Sparkle Team mascot

Topaz has excellent cuteness skills & helps inspire Hibiscus Moon as she works by just being present. It’s quite a job! She effectively communicates with others using only body language & purring along with the occasional meow.

Amethyst (bet you thought it was Topaz)

Helps heal lower back spasms by laying on top of a mini BioMat (filled with amethyst) over the lower back & purring loudly. Quite an effective healer, this kitty!

Crystal Automation and Systems Expert

Making sure that all the planets align behind the scenes, Ryan is our automation and systems expert. You will likely never see or talk to him, but he helps to make sure you get everything you are supposed to get, when you are supposed to get it…except for a few times a year when Mercury Retrograde wrecks havoc on our crystal alignment. 😉

When he is not mapping out flow charts and scheduling sequences with country music rocking through his headphone, you will find Ryan playing golf or drinking a beautiful Pinot Noir on the Central Coast of California. Ryan is dad to a precious little boy who can already swing a golf club, however they named him Cooper because Tiger was already taken. Look out Augusta, 2032 would make Coop the youngest Masters Champion ever!

Ummm, my wife loves diamonds, yeah diamonds.

I am a rockstar, seriously legit Chef. Really, I am not just saying that, I am actually a chef!

Erin was born and raised in Wisconsin (go Packers!) and now resides with her husband and two cats in warm + sunny Phoenix, Arizona. Erin has lived in Wisconsin, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Spain and has traveled all over the world but insists her favorite place thus far is Iran!

When she’s not online assisting success entrepreneurs kick butt, you can find Erin enjoying herself in nature, traveling to new and unexpected places, creative planning with her washi tape + sticker collection, chatting with her cats, eating frozen cream puffs and snuggling with her husband.

Favorite Crystal:
Rose Quartz

Hidden Sparkly Talent:
Erin loves learning about other cultures and languages and picks up on them quick! Be careful not to say something about her in Spanish or Farsi because she will understand you 😉
