Dave Ramsey, EntreLeadership was one of the very first books I read as a small business owner. The amazing examples set forth in his writings proved to be pivotal in the success of my business in its early years.  Strong leadership skills aren't necessarily what we think they are. The strength in leadership comes from learning what it means to be part of a team and lead by example.

I highly recommend this book no matter how long you have been in or around the business world. You will glean so many useful skills to help take you to the next level as an EntreLeader! xoxo-k


Timothy Ferriss, The 4 Hour Workweek has to be one of the most eye-opening books an entrepreneur can read.

The list of responsibilities when running a small business is never-ending. Business owners feel responsible to wear all of the hats, do all of the things, and work all of the hours. Tim teaches us how to effectively manage the workload without spreading yourself too thin, compromising work quality, and risking burnout.

If you are ready to STOP owning your JOB and ready to take control of your professional and personal life... this is the book for you! xoxo-k

It’s not your typical story, but the best ones rarely are! As you know, I have been raised as a city girl and have become accustomed to the pomp and circumstance that accompanies the jewelry industry.
 Clinton Douglas was raised in the country, embodying everything you would expect of a "good ole' boy". Until a month ago, he was a concrete worker.
Clinton and I have had a long-standing friendship and have seen each other through many ups and downs. Most people would definitely describe us as an unlikely pair. But, we would both argue that it’s our diversity that has not only made us best friends but an unstoppable duo as business partners!

When we first decided to team up professionally, we looked for a bench jewelry class to enroll Clinton into. It didn’t take long to locate a stone setting class in Lafayette, Louisiana - home of the largest jewelry distributor in the WORLD, Stuller Inc. and WE WERE OFF LIKE A PROM DRESS! (That’s Clinton’s bad influence shining through!…


Have you ever had one of those days?  Nothing, and I mean NOTHING goes right. For the sake of all sanity, you have to say “F (forget) THIS DAY!” and just walk away from the grind.
Today was that kind of day for me and my partner in crime! It didn’t matter how small or large the task was... everything Clinton Douglas and I touched,  turned to “shiitake”(mushrooms)! 
If you are an entrepreneur, like us, you have days like this under your belt. It seems like the harder you try the worse things get until that glorious moment when one of you looks over at the other in total defeat and says those magical words... “Efff this day! Let’s go get a Bloody Mary!” And this my friends is exactly why he is the ZING to my ZANG! Lol!!! 

I share this with you because there is something reassuring about knowing that you aren’t alone. If I had experienced this day solo, there is no doubt it would have ended in tears and discouragement. I would have been questioning if I was able to succeed and wondering…


I just finished a danceathon in my kitchen with my youngest daughter. She is a Senior in High School and just a few short months away from graduation. After working all day, working out, running errands, and getting dinner on the table (I picked up Saigon take out!)... I got into my comfy clothes and cuddled up with my laptop and a glass of red wine to get some marketing work done.  Just as I opened up my mac, she came flying into my room and said: "Put your socks on, mom!". I asked her why but she just kept repeating herself, "Just put your socks on and come downstairs!" So, I did.  As I made my way down the stairs, she qued up Alexa and started dancing and I immediately joined in. We were laughing, dancing, and singing like absolute fools! There was a blanket of emotions that covered me as we playfully slid around on the kitchen floor with each other making up crazy dance moves and showing our sass! This was a memory in the making and I was taking it all in. I co…
