Stephanie’s Bio

In her own words. . .

I started my first business when I was just 7 years old.  My older sister and I got a loom for Christmas and we made potholders and sold them door-to-door to the neighbors.  After that, we started two other businesses and I could feel the entrepreneurial blood coursing through my veins.  I was hooked!

From those first businesses, I learned three important lessons:

1)  Your product is worthless if nobody knows about it

2)  Always provide the best value for the dollar

3)  Get your parents’ permission first before you try to sell to the neighbors!

I grew up working in the family business.  My parents owned a restaurant and the lessons they taught me at home and at work about honesty, integrity and value are now a part of who I am – as a wife, a friend, and a businesswoman.  I am forever grateful to them for sharing their wisdom with me.  Much of who I am is because of them.

In my free time, I love spending time with my family – which includes my entirely loveable and always mischievous black Labrador retriever, Phoebe, and equally loveable and mischievous husband, Chuck.

I believe that good always overcomes evil, and most things in life are black and white.

I believe passion can’t be faked, and attitude is a choice.

I love to laugh and vow to never stop learning.

OK, now on to the official stuff. . .
