What do you love most about Topanga?
Shopping at Topanga Home Grown, fire trails, peace and quiet, art studio tours, friendly neighbors, and the horses I can see from my front porch.
What inspired your business?
After two years of working for a truly crazy boss, I decided to hang my own shingle and be my own crazy boss. The quarter moon is a symbol of rebirth and transformation, so I thought it was a fitting name for my new venture. My clients are so varied that I learn something new and interesting every day.
Expanding my client list, traveling, learning how to salsa, training for a marathon, and writing another book.
Best piece of business advice?
My first job out of college was as a copywriter at a Chicago ad agency. My mentor told me there are three things everybody looks at whenever they open a business letter: Their name (is it spelled right?); the first line; and the postscript. To this day, I add a P.S. to almost every letter I send out.
Best thing about the Topanga Chamber?
Meeting all sorts of people with very different backgrounds, careers, and interests. There’s a lot of hugging too, and that’s always a good thing.
