Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
Fibi & Clo is a home-based business that specializes in unique and beautiful sandals. Within the last six months, Fibi & Clo has grown 10,000 percent via fashion agents holding trunk shows where the hostess receives free shoes. I love bling and I love shoes, so it was the perfect fit! The shoes sell themselves – they are beautiful, comfortable and priced right.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
I enjoy volunteering at my kids’ charter school in Roseville and at our church. I love this business because I meet amazing women who have inspiring stories to share. I never know whom I’m going to meet at my trunk shows and the experiences they’ll have to share.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
I’m very proud of my family. I have the opportunity of being a stay-at-home mom to two boys (7 and 11 years old) and a wife to an amazing husband. Having my own home-based business allows me to work in my kids’ classrooms, help with homework and be available for them. I’m proud to see my boys growing up to be men of character with a strong value system.
What’s your hidden talent?
Finding bargains. I love to shop with coupons and find great deals.
What’s your biggest job perk?
Having a flexible schedule and meeting amazing women.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
I love Zakuro Sushi in Lincoln.
What’s your favorite local event that you go to?
First Fridays at The Fountains.
And finally, customer service is…?
The key to success! I always want the customer to feel like they’ve been given the best, from service to a quality product. If my customers aren’t happy, I’m not happy. One of the joys I get from business is positive feedback; it makes working worthwhile.
