I won't ask your age, but what was your favorite t.v. show to watch
Here's a few...Saved By The Bell, Punky Brewster, and The Cosby Show.
What or who gave you the courage to start a business?
I was a preschool teacher for many years, both my parents were entrepreneurs, I would spend hours daydreaming when I was suppose to be watching children. I would be planning and fantasizing about being my own boss.
Out of all the creative businesses you could have chosen to start, why did you choose a boutique?
Owning my own boutique and developing my own "pretty" products...seemed very natural for me I love fashion and products that made women feel pretty and that is what I do.
Lots of people want to be their own boss for obvious reasons, however they don't understand that it takes a great deal of commitment, and hard work. What's your work day like and how do you stay focused?
My typical work day starts in my head, because I'm a "creative" but very methodical. I'm a dreamer so I can see visual artistry in motion in my head, first. Sometimes it can take all day to get something done and sometimes it can take a quick second but all this is happening in my head while running my boutique, designing, styling, blogging and being a wife which is a job in itself. Lol!
How do you find the strength to persevere when the challenges seem to outweigh the rewards?
I live my life aware of challenges which are more like hurdles, sometimes I leap flawlessly and sometimes I stumble and fall but either way a race needs to be finished and ultimately the goal is to win. I've won more then I loss so I continue to sprint my way through this wonderful life.
What inspires you?
Ooh! Poetry, romance novels, fashion, movies, fragrances, natural beauty, people and anything vintage and old with history inspires me.
What's your go to wine when it's time to unwind? :)
Wine...I don't drink wine often enough to know but I do love a glass of champagne preferably pink every now and again.
When it comes to the following words, what advice would you give?
Work: find something you love and do it until it wears your heart out.
Self: Do what please you and God and when others see the light you exude then you know you're in the right place.
Life: I always say "you" are in control of your destiny, make life what "you" want it to be.
Love: Lol! I'm a "hopeful" romantic, so I see life with pink colored glasses. I married the love of my life almost 14yrs ago what else can I say.
Friends: I'm surrounded by beautiful creative women who I look up to and love dearly...you my friend are one of them. They inspire me and encourage me to continue to do what I do.
I define a Bohemian Spirit as someone who is free, unique, and unafraid to make her own stamp on the world. Why are you a Bohemian Spirit?
