Why did you decide to pursue this field? I have always been an “Entrepreneur in Heart”. My first invention/entrepreneur experience was at eight-years-old. I invented a purse/sun-visor combination. My background is business sales, a love for creating and a drive to succeed.

What do you love most about your job? Seeking opportunities and following tasks to their completion. I love seeing end results of a job well done.

What is the most stressful aspect of your job? Handling multiple tasks simultaneously and balancing family and work.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job? Sharing experiences with others and meeting interesting people.

Describe a typical day at work for you: Ten networking calls [minimum], two store visits, completing orders, digital networking sessions [Facebook, Twitter, etc.], sales calls and planning marketing venues [socials, book signings and shopping shows].

What advice or tips would you give someone who wants to do what you do? Have PASSION in your ventures; it helps during those moments when you ask yourself, ‘What was I thinking?’
