Not only was Julie able to tap into her creative side, but she was also able to channel that previously unexplored side of her personality into a lucrative business. Today, Julie and her husband work side by side with a network of female rug weavers and the intention of helping them earn more money by shortening the supply chain.

  • pursue your passion and the money will follow (provided you also apply your business skills)

  • everyone is an artist—find your medium
  • visualize your dreams and the universe will deliver
