Summary

While finishing up college, I came up with this crazy idea to make furniture, flat-pack it, and ship it to customers around the country. Thinking this was my first of many million dollar ideas, I decided to decline my full-time finance job offer and pursue this business full time.

While not quite my million dollar idea, this decision has pushed me into a design career with many different sources of creation. My daily schedule changes between building Amazon and Etsy orders in my shop, managing my product the PBspoon, designing DIY projects for DIYZ and working on custom commissions. Jumping from project to project allows me to use my ADD/Doer brain to build and design my newest and most exciting ideas on a daily basis.
