Her story starts in the spring of 2005, working in the corporate world as a recruiter she spent a lot of time at networking functions and participating in putting them together for other organizations. "It’s a lot of work putting together events and I thought to myself if I am going to do this, I should do it for myself. I was working part time to save money to start my image consulting firm so I figured this would be a great way to add in some revenue while the business gets up and running." She left her corporate job in the fall and started getting business owners together at a local book store café. "I still remember my first Monday after I left my job, I got up that morning and thought, what have I done??? Although there’s been a lot of bumps in the road I don’t regret my decision one bit. My passion is helping others succeed in their marketing efforts, I know how scary it can be to start a business and no one should feel alone on their journey." The company currently specializes in marketing, with the Magazine, talk radio program and online community for Women in Marketing.

Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my color analysis. Too bad I've been looking for the wrong colors since 1987. I wore my lipstick tonight with a neutral lip liner and it looked great. Thank you.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for the presentation you did for Central Florida College. You certainly had the students' attention and your topics were in perfect coordination with my career workshops. You made the presentation enjoyable as well as informative.
