3. One day I hope to:

Fly an airplane, camp on a beach with my best friend, and travel to Rome, Bali, and India.

4. Current obsession:

I am very dependent on my iPhone, and Cannon camera, but what I truly cannot live without are my little girls and Dance Party 2/Xbox-Connect!

5. Favorite business tool:

My pliers, and cutters for creating new designs; I’m also never too far from my iPhone and it really drives me crazy when I have to place it on a charger due to a low battery.

6. Favorite book(s):

Does National Geographic count? Anything from Eknath Easwaran, a spiritual teacher and author of books on meditation and ways to lead a fulfilling life.  My twenties were inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson and Edgar Allen Poe. I also brought myself up on art books, and inspirational writings for around the world.

7. Best place to unwind:

Pour me a glass of wine next to my bed with my laptop at hand. From this place I can escape from the stress and conversations of my day and reflect on things that stick with me. I love my quiet time.

8. Would love to have dinner with:

That is truly a secret!

9. You can never have too many:

You can never have too many colors of lipstick and you can never own too much jewelry!

10. Essential business tip:

Never over extend your financial limits and work hard every day — allowing a few days or blocks of time-off as needed.
