Leaving your super successful career and moving from the beach to the big city sounds more like a rom-com plot than real life. But in 2011, Tats and Ena Osake did just that. They quit their jobs (he produced big-budget commercials, and she was a well-known sushi chef), and they left Hawaii behind for a new life making minimal, curvilinear leather accessories and jewelry under the name 8.6.4 in New York. After two decades of putting their creative minds to work for other companies, both are more than happy to be their own bosses - but that doesn't mean they don't still draw on their mountains of experience to take care of biz. Here are four former-life lessons they keep coming back to.

How serious does Ariana Boussard-Reifel get when visiting an estate sale or flea market to dig up hidden gems? Let's just say the gloves come off. "It can get aggressive," warns the designer and vintage jewelry dealer - who was also one-time cast member on a thrifting reality show, you should know. Suffice it to say, the girl knows her way around a trunk full of dusty ties and turquoise rings, and she'll share them with you just as long as you promise to stand down if you encounter her amidst a pile of silk scarves.

A few key things signal the holidays for Lisa Salzer of the vintage-but-better jewelry line Lulu Frost: opening presents with her family from youngest to oldest on Christmas morning, popping open crackers full of confetti, and above all, taking her first bite of roasted turkey, based on one her grandma Betty used to make. These days, Lisa does some bird basting herself when she's in a celebratory mood, and when she does, she hews pretty closely to the passed-down, never-fail O.G. recipe (which includes notes for removing feathers, just in case), and it's never once let her down. Try out the secret Salzer family recipe yourself and follow Lisa's sage advice: "Slow down and breathe. Stop and smell the gravy."
