Feel Good When You Wear A VIZINI®, The Chic, Totally Strapless Sun Visor
Rita Hockenbury-Kelt, owner of Vizini®, Inc. launched a revolutionary sun visor that slips onto your sun glasses in the fall of 2007. But in the spring of 2008, Vizini, Inc. received an 8,000-unit shipment of its totally strapless sun visors from China that just did not cut the mustard. “I had store buyers waiting for the new colors and I just could not send these sun visors out. Every time I looked at the stack of orders, my stomach just churned.”
She sent a few of her sun visors to various textile factories here in the US to see if they could fix them, but the cost was prohibitive… until she received a call from a factory located in southwest Virginia. “I’ll never forget that kind gentleman with the deep southern accent asking me, ‘Rita, why don’t you let us make these for you?” She sent out a letter to the waiting buyers explaining that she couldn’t send them an inferior product. She told her buyers of her intent to switch to a US factory. The response? YOU GO, GIRL!

Luxurious Personalised Hand-sewn Towels and Gifts from Jane Hamerton
Jane O’Riordan (née Hamerton) was born in Kenya in 1959 – she was the first born of four sisters. jane’s family lived in many countries across the globe (East & West Africa, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, the USA and Belgium to name a few). From a very young age Jane developed a lifelong love of sewing, starting with cross-stitch and embroidery and then developing into making clothes and curtains. Because of her father’s job, the family were never based in one country for long so, to give some stability to her education, Jane was sent to a girls’ convent boarding school in Surrey (Woldingham School) at the age of 9. She loved her time at Woldingham, despite finding some aspects of the academic side fairly daunting – she was always the youngest in the class. As she was a very popular girl, with a large number of friends from many year groups, the nuns recognised certain special qualities and appointed her Head Girl in her final year at the school.

The Story Of Lois Geller - Owner And President Of Lois Geller Marketing Group
When I was growing up my parents thought it would be “safe” for me to become a teacher. So, I graduated from Boston University with a B.S. Degree in Education.
Getting a teaching job in New York City though was impossible at the time, and I tried working in a “West Side Story” kind of school, but didn’t last. A career placement company put me in an editorial job, working for a biomedical publication, and my boss was great….but he died that summer and I somehow became the Editor. I knew nothing about biomedical equipment or science…but I stayed there for 5 or six years.
