As a former high school teacher, I logged many an hour rising before the sun, packing lunches, checking backpacks, and laying out clothes before the rest of the family was up and moving.
However, my life looks a little different now. As a fashion consultant, I own my own boutique full of amazing clothes and I get to spend my days at home with my kids.
On any given day, you’ll find me like this, camped out in the floor, pulling inventory and packing orders. What you don’t see, is that just outside this frame, my son is playing with his Hotwheels cars and my daughter is finishing her school work.
I am my own boss. If I want to take a day off work, I give myself permission and the kids and I take off to do whatever we want to do. If I am not feeling well, I call in sick to MYSELF! No more worrying about scheduling a sub or whether or not I would have to take a day unpaid if the kids got sick.
I still pinch myself that this is the life I get to live…the one I am designing each day and building into something that I get to watch continue to grow. And, I get to do that by helping ladies find clothes they love, one beautiful woman at a time.
