Could you share your background prior to becoming an entrepreneur?
I have always wanted to work for myself. Before becoming an entrepreneur, I worked for Merrill Lynch as a Legal Assistant for 10 Years. I just never liked sitting behind a desk. It left me feeling uninspired. Also, due to the fact that I do not have a College Education, moving up the corporate ladder would have taken much longer than I was willing to wait for.
How was it helpful to you as you began your entrepreneurial journey?
Actually, being in the corporate environment pushed me to want to break free on my own, so I guess just being there was helpful.
What led you to purchase BritchinPost.com?
That’s my favorite question. Probably a common answer in my field as well. The birth of my daughter Olivia inspired me. I was shopping for her at one of my favorite online boutiques (Britchinpost.com) and had to call the owner to ask a question. In the midst of conversation, she told me she was going to be selling her online store. The Lila Lightbulb went on and I was soon the new owner of the Britchinpost.com online Girls Boutique.
