My topic is “Top 10 Success Secrets For Makers and Handmade Entrepreneurs,” and I'll be sharing from my heart what nearly 15 years in the handmade industry has taught me about launching and managing a successful business. Even if you are not a Maker or handmade entrepreneur, you will enjoy my presentation because the principles I will share will help you be successful no matter what type of business you have. Come on out and meet with me and 300+ of the Nation's Capital's most amazing entrepreneurs at International Hair Meetup Day!

Do you wear your hair naturally? I do today, but did you ever iron, relax, etc., your locks to get them to behave like “everyone else's?” I'd love to meet you and hear your story this weekend!
