Her local store packs a worldwide punch with shoppers from Hinsdale to China. This busy mom of three shares the five things she can’t live without.
“I really have no idea where I would be without all of them. So much of who I am and the values that I work to teach my own children are a result of the home that I grew up in.”
“I have always said that since becoming a mother, my friends have helped me maintain my identity. They remind me that I can still have fun despite the craziness of my day-to-day life. Life wouldn’t be the same without them.”
“I have 3 wonderful children. Their energy, laughter, and love is infectious.”
“I’ve never had as much appreciation for technology as I do now running an internet-based business. I can hardly even remember how we managed to coordinate schedules, meet up with friends, or take a family trip without the technology of today.”
5. Diet Coke.
“I absolutely, hands down, couldn’t live without Diet Coke. It’s how I start and end my day—just pouring a Diet Coke actually relieves stress. When we opened our retail store, having fountain Diet Coke was at the top of my list!”
