Why I’ve started this site:
It’s about time. What an exciting journey.
A little (actually alot) about me:
I am a mother of 4 (one recently “adopted”) wonderful children and wife to a very loving husband, Rick. Hobbies are a wonderful thing and I have many, decorating, gardening, shopping, networking. They all seem to have a common link and that is creativity.
My free time is spent with my family & BFFâ€™s (if you lack teenagers in your life, BFF stands for BEST FRIENDS FOREVER). I am continually messing up my balancing act of trying to figure out a way to increase the hours in a day. Nothing has changed in my life since I was a very young girl when it comes to wanting to do it ALL. I truly subscribe to living each day to the fullest potential.
My career started after college with a job and transfer to Des Moines, Iowa. Max Factor Cosmetics sent me to LA to train for 6 weeks in both Marketing & Sales and endless amounts of Product Knowledge only to deposit me in DesMoines. Max Factor was the beginning foundation for a long Corporate Career in Sales with Sterling Drug, Revlon and Whitehall Labs.
As time went on, I realized that Corporations were the worst type of pyramid. True Story, and a topic all in and of itself that I will elaborate on later.
IN ORDER TO WORK I HAVE TO LOVE WHAT I DO so I knew that I had the tools from my past to pave my destiny. Designing Clothes for myself in the beginning lead to a company called SeeC Originals and a 5 year business relationship with Andy Williamâ€™s Moon River Theatre in Branson MO. BIG FEATHER IN MY CAP but I learned a valuable lesson. You cannot make money unless you can duplicate & scale. SeeC was about artistry and very difficult to find contractors to duplicate. Eventually it all became very over whelming. The memories that I have from those times are amazing.
Luckily…I will finish this one later
