The same person had been doing my hair for over 20 years. Wanting a fresh perspective and a change, I took a chance and made an appointment at a local cosmetology school. I received a fresh set of highlights and a hair cut from Jenny and, once she graduated, I decided to follow her in order for her to continue doing my hair.
AVENUE MORTGAGE, MOLLY GRACE PHOTOGRAPHY, AND BELLA VEDA SALON ALL UNITE TO SUPPORT THE WARCHEST BOUTIQUE IN NAPERVILLE!!
On Friday, Ashley Pitariu of the WARCHEST Boutique had another great event at her store! I am truly amazed by her creativity in connecting other services to help promote her cause. A true gift that many business’s miss out on. With each event she showcases other local business which not only promotes her, but allows her customers to see the others service up close and personal. It really sends out a statement to others in the surrounding areas of how to create awareness of not only their product but the cause they stand for.

In this particular event Molly Grace Photography was providing Free photo sessions for each person who purchased an item. The pictures were then sent to the women who actually made the jewelry. What a great way to show the women who have been saved from Human Trafficking that they have value in turn building a small relationship to those purchasing the jewelry! This store is amazing and Molly Bornfriend has now added her own signature on each piece that was sold by providing a beautiful picture as a bonus!
We at Avenue Mortgage also came to help support the Store!
This is what I love about our company!
David’s Motto for this year is:
Within the past three weeks we have created committees within our company to create this environment. One being the “Avenue Cares Team or A.C.T.” which Linda, David, I all have a passion for. The other being our Social Committee which organizes company events every month for our employees. We truly love what the Warchest is doing for the community, and came to support Ashley in the cause of helping fight against Human Trafficking.
Great Job Ashley!
Starting a business from scratch – home business or small business – is often an iffy and possibly pricey process. Legal issues, licensing, permits, location, building a customer base – to name a few – are time-consuming with no guarantee of success. Even if launching goes well, the break-even point could be some years away, even with the best of research and planning.
Purchasing a current concern has advantages and some drawbacks also. We’ll step back from the ‘yeah – that’s it!‘ moment and examine the issue.
You have a great idea, one that may be the next blockbuster creation. A prototype product is assembled in your home office, garage, living room or on the kitchen table. Friends like it and have told you to market the product and make big $$. This is all fine and grand, but you have one small problem: you don’t have the startup funds, credibility or infrastructure to launch a major product rollout. Here are two wonderful organizations that can help you achieve your goal: RocketHub and Kickstarter. Each is briefly described below:
