Have you read the recent story about TABITHA + CO™ written by Laura Churchill Duke and published digitally with SaltWire.com? I think that she did an amazing job sharing some of my entrepreneurial journey. Let us know what you think!
True story....how one story opens conversation to other fascinating stories....I didn't know about this recent story release being in the Chronicle Herald this month, as the story was discussed well before the holidays.
I received an interesting call from Elizabeth Schwarzer living in Musquodobit Harbour a few days ago. Elizabeth shared her excitement about reading the recent story on February 15th in the Chronicle Herald newspaper. The story brought her back to a time in her youth as a leather apprenticeship in Germany at the age of 15. For a 3-month probationary period she learned the importance of dusting off the leather each morning, repairing suitcase corners, leather bag handles and sales.
She held many positions in the fine leather craft making industry in the early 1960's..
Working in Barcelona with Loewes in her youth and so much more. Elizabeth has already made plans to visit with me later this March, to share more of her extraordinary stories. I can't wait to meet her in person!
My advice, take time, listen to stories shared by friends, family and strangers. It is during these special moments, we realize just how connected we all are.
