Orange County Power Couple Mindy and Glenn Stearns To Be Profiled in Cover Story of Home Issue of Celeb Staff Magazine In
The Stearns Cinderella cover story is featured along with Kitchen Trends, Custom Wine Cellars and a poll asking quot;Am I Too Sexy
To Work At Your Estate.“
Beverly Hills, CA — quot;The rags to riches, American-entrepreneur success storyquot; of Glenn and Mindy Stearns, of Orange County,
that was featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, comes to life in a cover story of the October issue of Celeb Staff Magazine
(www.celebstaff.com). The Cinderella story of Mindy Burbano Stearns began when she was discovered by Oprah Winfrey while
making animal calls as an audience member. The KTLA-TV Ch. 5 Anchor found her true calling in the entertainment industry,
leaving what she thought was a lifetime career as a dental hygienist.
Glenn Stearns grew up in the Maryland Projects and failed the fourth grade, but later finished college, became a loan officer in
real estate, started his own companies and later owned 20. His luck changed when he first set foot in Orange County and
became fascinated with the mansions that lined the coast.
Stearns started his own Mortgage Company and the rest is the quot;riches, American entrepreneurquot; part of the story featured in the
October issue of Celeb Staff Magazine available in two weeks. In this exclusive, cover story, Celeb Staff showcases the Stearns'
storybook lives, and how they define wealth beyond material terms, with style, zest, altruism, family values and fun. The article
provides an entertaining example of a glamorous couple balancing many personal and public priorities in the most satisfying
way. The Stearns have indeed dedicated a greater part of their lives to helping disadvantaged youths reach their full potential
through the Stearns Family Charitable Foundation (www.glennandmindy.com).
Celeb Staff Magazine has discovered in its extensive coverage of managing mansions and luxury estates that relationships
among employers and their domestic staff can be very complex. Issues in letters to the editors prompted follow-up coverage.
Now, Celeb Staff features a poll, which is also going to be posted online at www.celebstaff.com asking the question that begs an
answer from readers. The October issue poll question asks, quot;Am I too sexy to work for you?quot; The last issue poll question was
also controversial and read, quot;Should household staff be permitted to take home leftovers or surplus provisions?quot; It allows readers
to vote. The results of that poll will be published in the October issue.
The home issue of Celeb Staff Magazine also spotlights the latest in kitchen design and trends. Readers will have the opportunity
to learn about the exciting possibilities that will satisfy the most refined requirement whether one's taste runs to contemporary or

Gwen: While we deal with national and regional specialty
retailers like OfficeMax, Disney, Tweeter Home
Entertainment and LensCrafters, they’ve all created
experiences in their stores.
If you're interested in getting an industry perspective on why
an experience is becoming so important in retail, even at the
independent level, let me know. I'd be happy to connect you

Subject: [B2 Blog]: Office supplies can be fun?
Erick - Who really wants to buy an Easy Button?** OfficeMax just
unveiled a new store with something customers can really appreciate—a
store that takes the yawn out of stocking up on office supplies. URL
My firm helped design the store, including the brightly colored bulk bins
that will remind customers of shopping for penny candy. They can scoop
up basics such as paper clips, pens and rubber bands. The bulk bins
make it possible for customers to purchase only as much as they need.
OfficeMax provides a box to carry the supplies. Whatever they fit into the
box they can take home for one price. They can buy all blue supplies or
buy all pens...whatever floats their boat.
The store is custom-tailored to small business and home office types and
better aligns itself with its advertising. You need to see the bins to
appreciate it. Let me know if you're interested and I'll send them along. It
might make a nice visual for B2Day? Thanks.
