About You and Me

This website is is all about helping YOU start and grow your business to success. That’s why it’s called the Success Express!

You are here to learn and I am here to help.  I spent the last 30 years creating and building my own gift business.  You can see it at ShopCreativeGifts  That wasn't my first business, however.  I've published a statewide newspaper and was a multi-million dollar Realtor.  So I know a bit about marketing and growing a business.
