What keeps you up at night?
“Not too much anymore. In the early days, everything kept me up at night. In my quest to create balance in my life, I had to learn to switch off the worry button. Sometimes this is easier said than done, but when I look back on the things I was stressed about, I realize that the things that worried me the most were often things I could not control.”
What makes you feel powerful?
“I’d have to say it’s the knowledge I’ve gained over the years and also the wealth of experience I’ve gained that I put to work every day. I’ve been through just about every situation imaginable and the experience and knowledge I’ve gained make me feel powerful enough to handle anything that comes my way. I guess turning 50 has its advantages.”
What’s the best thing anyone’s ever told you about yourself?
“That I am a fair and honest person. There are often very difficult issues and problems that you encounter as a business owner in your dealings with employees, customers and vendors. It’s always been important to me that the people I work with can count on me to be fair and truthful even when I have to make difficult and unpopular decisions.”
What do you hope to achieve in the next five years?
“Eufora is no longer the “new kid on the block” and we’ve lived through our adolescent years. We’ve built a thriving business dedicated to the salon professional in every way. With a solid foundation of loyal distributors, salons and consumers, the next five years will be our greatest achievement years as we continue building our portfolio of prestige products and advanced education offerings for salons. We’ll keep working hard over the next five years to achieve our goal and to become the brand of choice for premier independent salons.”
