Your 140 character pitch: If you are planning a wedding or celebration, or want to beautify your business, SDezigns is for you! Everything we create is custom made; attention to detail is the key.
Your Elevateher Pitch! Do what feels right in your heart. Be the boss of your life and the one in control. Keep your cool, act like a lady and always be poised… you never know who’s watching.
Your immediate region: I reside in New Jersey, but my business is worldwide.
Featured products &/or services: We do so many different things that it’s hard to feature just one. Invitations, business looks, event design…
What do people think you do for a living? People have different opinions, some think it’s just stationery, some think it’s just event planning, but not all know it’s both and more.
What do you actually do for a living? I plan, coordinate and design weddings and events. I also design custom stationery and do graphic design and printing for business.
Tell us about your passions! My passion is my business and my business is my passion! Making things beautiful and surrounding myself with beauty is all me.
Who|What inspires you? My clients and their vision inspire me. The still of the night after midnight get my creative juices flowing.
Was there a turning point in your life that led to your current career? Yes! I always knew I didn’t want to work for someone else and that I wanted to be my own boss. The opportunity of working with a big organization designing their website was presented and I had to form and register a business in order to accept it. This is how it all started.
If money weren’t a factor, what would you be doing? I would still be doing what I love and growing my business further. However, I would be doing a bit more traveling around the world.
What’s in your Bucket List? To visit at least one or two countries from each continent.
Knowing all you know now, what would you tell your 20 year old self? I would teach myself some love lessons, haha. Business wise, I would have told myself to start asap! Study and research what I wanted to do earlier and intern with people in my field.
What’s your go-to stress reliever? A Spa and yoga. A massage is the only thing that releases my tension and yoga “takes me away” and quiets my mind.
How do you perceive retirement? Can’t picture myself not doing anything or what I love, so I haven’t thought about it…I’m not there yet.
Do you have a personal philosophy you’d like to share? Things happen for a reason and at the right time. Treat people the way you want to be treated.
What would you like your legacy to be? I want people to remember me as a “go-getter”, hardworking, excellent hostess (the friend who had the best get-togethers), a great friend and most important and definitely not least, an awesome mother and wife.
