Thanks for visiting my website and blog….
After writing a simple book to my kids about my philosophies on life, I realized I better practice what I preach so I leaped into the abyss – at least that’s what it’s felt like. (still does most of the time)
I wanted pink work boots so I could paint houses (like Debbie Travis) and look like the girly girl I am. I managed to design 30 pairs of pink (and blue, red, green, tan and black) work boots. Then I sold them to the largest retailers in Canada. Now we are selling an entire collection of safety gear to the largest retailers in the USA.
Throughout the journey I have wanted to quit, I have cried, heart pounding out my neck, my stomach has ached. I have persevered because I wanted to jump with no regrets. I have never been scared to fail. I did want to learn how to succeed in life (not business.) I have lost and gained relationships. In the process, I have figured out who I am wholeheartedly. My kids excel in everything they do and are ridiculously happy. My husband and I have learned how to communicate as I hit the panic button and he comes to my rescue. We all need someone to come to the rescue.
I will be writing, sharing my experiences; the good, the bad and the ugly. I will share my stories because I think we all feel better knowing we are in this together and more similar than we are different. I have sold to the largest retailers in the world, lost an exclusivity deal with a major retailer (now out of business), I have sold my dream and vision to one of the best retailers in Canada; Marks Work Wearhouse. I have inked a deal with a dragon and billionaire; W Brett Wilson. I have launched in the US. I have sold products that keep women safe on the inside and out. I have created a brand with impact, strength and sales. I have jumped wholeheartedly. I found my moxie… and I want you to find yours too.
