What motivated you to start your business?
The promise of freedom and abundance as an entrepreneur has always appealed to me! When my children were young it meant I could stay connected to adults while staying at home to raise them. Now that they have grown I am enjoying the freedom of choice and abundance of love, joy and new discoveries
Tell us about your business.
I am committed to helping women discover their inner being through fashion. Seeing the sparkle in their eyes when they put on an outfit that is perfect for their body is intoxicating to me and I take every opportunity I get to experience this. I use the comfortable clothing provided by Jockey Person To Person to help women dress for their shape.
What is a day in the life of you like?
Very diverse! My passion for fashion is one of many passions and you will find me working on others industries throughout my day.
