Today I am thrilled to introduce you to one of my fabulous Mastermind Members and her gorgeous and fun new website!
After seven years in the business, Karen Davis knew she didn’t want to be “just another interior decorator” and decided it was time to rebrand her business based on her passions and a strong sense of her authentic self. The result is the recently launched Marker Girl, her Houston-area design firm dedicated to creating the “Happy Family Home.”
The name comes from an incident any mother can understand: One day when her daughter was just 2 years old, Karen’s “mommy feeling” kicked in. “When I walked into our family room, I found her doing some decorating of her own with a black Sharpie—on herself and on my ottoman!” Karen laughs: “After that, I made the decision that I should decorate around my family’s lifestyle and work with my clients the same way. I also discovered what a ‘Happy Home’ is about—focusing on time spent together in spaces that are comfortable and make you happy.”
Karen joined my Mastermind program when it began three years ago, and she says that “working with Tobi helped give me the confidence to refocus my business.”
“My biggest takeaway from the program is to be proud of who I am and what I stand for with my brand. Tobi has shown me how to create a more successful business around that brand,” Karen says. “Honestly, if it weren’t for her, there would be no Marker Girl. Tobi was the one who really believed in me when I didn’t believe I could do this myself.”
With her company’s new brand identity in place and her vision more tightly focused, Karen is working to spread the word about Marker Girl and build multiple revenue streams.
Karen says, “I look forward to sharing all that I am doing and learning and connecting with more moms-on-the-go like me who are always looking for ways to improve their life, family and home.”
As a mom myself, I especially love all Karen’s busy mom tips, because this busy, working mom needs all the help I can get!! And something you may not know about me is that I am a Marker Girl too. I wrote on everything as a child including my grandmother’s turquoise ultra-suede chair. Oops!
So if you’re a Marker Girl yourself, or you want family-friendly tips for mom’s on the go, head over and check out the Marker Girl site. And to tide you over until you get there, here are just a couple of Karen’s gorgeous,kid-friendly spaces.
Happy Humpday to all you Marker Girls and Boys out there! xo,
