hile growing up, I was surrounded by what I now find to be two of my best qualities: creativity and focus. While the creativity allowed me to freely explore my mind and interests, I came to understand that focus is a driving force behind success. I was able to use these qualities in my first business as a graphic designer, where I got my first taste of owning and running my own business. Always keeping my eye on the next big thing, I began dabbling in website design and very quickly realized, however, that I was not able to ride the “internet wagon” on my own. Yes, I had the creative eye to design a compelling website – but I had absolutely no knowledge of how to build the functionalities that make a website useful.
Eventually teaming up with a start-up web company, I sharpened my skills as a project manager, overcame the “learning curve” of designing websites (graphic design and web design are very much two different things) and met Craig, now my business partner and husband!
