Can you describe a typical day in your daily and busy life?
A typical day would consist of sorting through email and digital media, programing any photos for publishings for the day. Check my calendar for appointments or events for the day.

Time flies so the day can pass pretty quickly.

I really enjoy meeting other women who are going through the same rollercoaster as I am, women who want to start a business or need help in their job.

Fear is something that happens to all of us even to those who say they have no fear. What is important is that we have the capacity of overcoming that fear. Sometimes those inner voices try to stop you in your tracks. Fear happens but I would urge everyone to understand that you just have to go past it, believe in yourself, stay on course, move forward. You got this!!!

Most of what I read is Fashion related so lots of picture books. I will tell you what I like to watch... Downton Abbey, anything Jane Austin... loved the era and the clothing... I also enjoy documentaries of fashion icons, feel good movies & comedies.
