My road in life has been direct.
Used to fantasize about designing the toys inside of the Cracker Jack boxes.
While in London, she saw people wearing buttons everywhere.
Realized that she could bring the trend back to the States, had a friend teach her how to make them.
Had support from friends in the band Guided by Voices, said they'd be her first customers.
Armed with the idea and the promised customers, it all came together and she knew she had to go for it.
Says that, of course, a lot of people were skeptical of her business, but it made her want to do well.
Doesn't believe in the idea of "one right thing for everybody," thinks we could all succeed at a variety of things.

I started making custom buttons out of my college apartment and turned into a thriving business.
