Hmm, let's see, where to start...I'm an Independent Founding Stylist and Color Street Director. What this means is that I was among the very first Color Street Stylists ever - yup, I was on board when Color Street first launched in June 2017. Joining Color Street was the best decision I ever made!
Anyway, my great-grandparents emigrated to Canada in the 1800's and later moved to the States. I grew up in Minnesota but moved to Arizona with my family after high school. I am blessed with 4 siblings and their families, 3 grown children, 7 wonderful grands, and a long-suffering husband with a great sense of humor. They are the most important people in my life and I love them dearly!
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and a Master's Degree in Human Relations. I spent most of my career in Human Resources, retiring after many years as the Human Resources Director for the metropolitan Phoenix community in which I live.
I knew when I retired I wanted to stay active - I'm still a kid at heart. I've always had an entrepreneurial spirit, and I worked in sales before starting my HR Career, so I knew I wanted to get back into sales. I also knew I wanted to sell something that made people happy.
This sales "bug" of mine goes all the way back to my elementary school days when I sold greeting cards door to door (you'd never let your kids do that these days). Later I sold beauty products, again going door to door and doing parties. I worked my way through College selling home furnishings and custom draperies on commission.
After I retired, but before Color Street came to market, I sold Jamberry nail products for a few years because they were pretty much the only direct sales nail products on the market, but there were things about them I didn't like, so I started looking for something else.
Then, BAM, in the Spring of 2017 I discovered Color Street before they even came to market. I tried ONE sample strip on ONE NAIL and was blown away by the ease, convenience and innovation of the product. Plus I LOVED it! That sample stayed on my nail for a good two weeks just as promised! I knew immediately that I wanted IN, so I joined a pre-launch group of Stylists-In-Waiting and eagerly counted down the days until the company launched in June!
I was more excited about Color Street than I have ever been about any beauty product - because it did exactly what it was supposed to do - every time!
I've been having fun and meeting new friends ever since . I even invited my ex-banker husband Bob to be my Chief Financial Officer! (That's him in the pic) He get's a total kick out of it. I'm probably one of the only wives who has ever heard her husband say, "Honey, don't do that - you'll break a nail!"
So that's me. I am a Color Street addict now and I carry a good sized cash and carry inventory. I love the product and wear it all the time. If you haven't tried it you really should. It's a total game changer for us busy women who don't have time for something as mundane as waiting for our nails to dry! Aargh!
If I don't already, I hope to get to know you online or in person some day, and I hope I get to bring a little happy into your life!
