    • www.ResortAndLuxuryHomes.com
    • www.ResortAndLuxuryHomes.com Once upon a time…… There was a little girl who dreamed of owning her own business.
    • www.ResortAndLuxuryHomes.com For as long as she could remember, she would watch as her parents cheerfully gave their hard earned money to store clerks & business owners.
    • www.ResortAndLuxuryHomes.com “Playing store” was her favorite thing to do.
    • www.ResortAndLuxuryHomes.com While her friends wanted to be the “shoppers & the Mommies”
    • www.ResortAndLuxuryHomes.com But, Terie? She wanted to be the store keeper.
    • www.ResortAndLuxuryHomes.com And, she thought to herself…
    • www.ResortAndLuxuryHomes.com To this day, that has never changed.
    • Terie has done many things over the years. An Army “brat” & daughter of a M.P. & Police Officer, her family moved from state to state & even lived in Japan & Hawaii.
    • Terie went to more schools then there were girl scout badges, cheated death, went to college to become a cop, but got married & got pregnant…3 times. So, she went to college again, this time in graphic design & communication arts. She set her career dreams aside, as she raised her kids, all the while working at everything from cocktail waitress to family entertainer.
    • She finally owned her first business, when she started doing face painting, balloon twisting & balloon décor, to help support her family & still be a full time, stay at home Mom
    • Terie also homeschooled her kids when the schools weren’t making the grade and somehow found the time to start a youth soccer program in Colorado.
    • They ultimately moved to Cape Cod & where Terie became a Real Estate Broker. Not long after, she became divorced . She worked even harder to take care of her kids & met this nice guy that turned out to be an abusive jerk & control freak.
    • Finally, she had as much as she could take & reached out for help from police & local domestic violence shelter, for the safety of herself and her kids, but found none.
    • Terie took it on herself to take all the lemons life had given her and decided to…. Make lemonade.
    • Terie took all she had learned over the years, from school, life, business & love, good times & bad and….
    • She started working on her vision of an international website for the marketing of resort & luxury homes and a companion lifestyles website…
    • www.ResortAndLuxuryHomes.com & www.ResortAndLuxuryLiving.com
    • These websites are funded on nothing more than what she has scratched together & sheer determination. She spends every spare minute, revising and developing these sites, to meet her vision. All the while, she works full time at real estate & always developing her professional skills.
    • This is only the beginning of her story. You could call it, the first chapter. The next chapters will come to life with funding & publicity. You can help with both. You can help Terie write her story, by Sharing her story & by connecting her with “Angels” to help her with funding her vision.

    • Not, the End…. It’s just the “Beginning” Thank you, for reading Success to you all! #My.start-up.story
