Cocoa Daisy was founded about seven years ago by Tricia Canonico. I first joined Cocoa Daisy, as a subscriber, in 2007.
I tried out when Cocoa Daisy had a Design Team call, and made the team. About 6 months later, Tricia asked me to start creating the project kits.
I loved coming up with ideas for the project kits and putting them together!
Soon, I was joining Tricia for her trips to CHA, so I got a good idea of how much work goes into putting together the main kit.
Well, fast forward to 2010. I found myself having to leave my marriage of 11 years, with no work history for the last 8 because I'd been a stay at home Mom.
At that time Tricia happened to be pregnant, moving to another state and planning to close things down here at Cocoa Daisy.
I approached her and said I wanted to do it!
I was terrified... leaving a marriage, moving in with my parents and starting a business all at the same time.
That was the worst, most stressful summer of my life!
But I knew I had to give it a try because it was the perfect scenario for me. I'd be doing something I love and I'd also be home with the boys.
My background in graphic design from before I became engaged, including 10 years' experience as a Composition Manager, gave me the confidence to jump in and pray that God had placed this opportunity in front of me for a reason.
It's been an amazing two years! Learning as I go, always trying to make changes and improvements, working to get the kits out on time and to give my 100% to customer service has been more than stressful at times, BUT I wouldn't change a thing!
I am just so very thankful for all of you. Thank you for joining with me on this incredible journey.
