This is not just a pen.

Seems mighty appropriate to be signing contracts – for a big announcement I’ll be making in the coming weeks – with this here pen.

This is not just a pen. It's a sign of women stepping into their power. And…my, how it sparkles!

This is not just a pen. It’s a sign of women stepping into their power. And…my, how it sparkles!

This Swarovski pen was a gift 4 years ago from my former boss, Barbra Streisand. I brought it along with me today, specifically to sign these contracts, because of the woman from whom it was given.

I learned so much about how to conduct business in Hollywood, how to treat people, and how to give back, thanks to her, and her assistant, Renata.

I learned that the biggest dreams do come true if: “You feel it. You see it. You understand it. You say it. You do it. You make it happen,” as Barbra once said.

I am so thankful for every job I have had that has brought me to this place, every lesson I have learned, every opportunity given to me, every act of kindness extended, and every powerful woman, who has taught me how to step into my own power.

A little about the brilliant Joey Limandri of Redo My Shoe:

Redo My Shoe came into fruition in August of 2010, an idea originated after Joseph LiMandri stumbled upon a blog that featured pictures of people’s DIY jobs on their Christian Louboutin shoes, executed mainly with Swarovski crystals. Needless to say, he was intrigued. Furthermore, he recognized a gap – albeit, niche – in the market; a service that enabled the client to customize their own shoes. It had been done before, as we’ve all scene. But LiMandri wanted his venture to focus strictly on high-end, contemporary footwear. Three years later, he is now at the forefront in embellishing designer shoes, purses, perfume bottles, wallets, bowties and more with Swarovski Elements rhinestones. No other company offers the service and craftsmanship you receive with Redo My Shoe. He has successfully established a business that encourages customization in an otherwise mass-produced marketplace. With over 125 completed pairs under his belt, his business is booming.
Happy Mother’s Day week, everyone!
