Leila and Dionne Williams

Leila has loved animals since she was about two years old. She would watch Diego on Nickelodeon and really retain the animal facts that she learned on the show. When we would tell people about her love of animals, they would think of it like a little kid enjoying the zoo. But they would ask Leila a question about an animal and they would be amazed by the information she could share. Read more>>

Building a good team was important to me and is behind my success. We each have our own strengths but we share the same values. Ultimately taking good care of people is our priority. This takes good morals and a desire to treat people the way we all want to be treated. We all want our customers to be happy and they are. That’s the secret to my success. Read more>>

Fear will always make you feel like you are not worthy enough. Negative energy from society will keep you doubting your visions. Employment will snatch up all of your free time. Finances will postpone how you make yourself available. But if you are hungry for success, these things will only be viewed as excuses to hold you back. You have to challenge yourself because nothing will be handed to you. Read more>>

When I moved to Dallas in 2001, I volunteered to decorate for parties and other events for friends who quickly noticed I had a knack for décor and design.

I had been a stay at home mom for two years after being a paralegal for 7+ years. I felt the need to do something for myself and my family.

That in itself was even harder but I pushed through it! Read more>>
