About Me

Posted on: August 6th, 2008 by admin No Comments

My name is Emily Joan Rubin Persons. I grew up on Long Island (near Robert Moses). I went to the University of Delaware, and then moved to Manhattan. I worked for several different companies – umbrella manufacturer, fur coat retail, Avon Products, color coordinated beach products, outdoor furniture showroom. I met Rick in 1988 and life began to look really good. We moved to Hong Kong in 1990. We had a great life with lots of friends and great travels. I continued collecting jobs – computer graphic presentation materials, golf shirt manufacturer, personnel consultant, interior design firm. For some reason I could never find the right environment or the right boss. If things became undesirable, I moved on.

It is surprising to me that I have maintained my business for 13 years. As hindsight is 20-20, I guess my collection of jobs and positions were the perfect training for owning my own business. Being my own boss is wonderful thing. I work at my own pace; I set the tone.

I started my business before my oldest son was born. I had no idea that I was about to create a perfect world. It really hit when my oldest was 9. We were talking in my office, and then he leaned over and gave me a big hug and said, “Mom, I’m so glad you work from home.” He is proud that I work, but glad that the work enables me to be there for him all the time.

Fortunately, the world today is what it is so that I can run this business – quite successfully – from my home and still be a “stay-at-home mother & wife”. I would like to encourage and help any and all women, mothers and future mothers to achieve this balanced life.
