MYST 30 Kara Counard: 101 Women Changed Her Life

Kara never sits still. She was working as a bartender, a Starbucks barrista, an appraisal service, a figure model for several art schools, and was a free-lance graphic design artist, all at the same time. Photography was not part of her life plan. She thought starting an Etsy store was her future. But she listened to her customers and in the process created a business–all because she filled the needs of her customers. She gave them what they wanted!

      Crissy, I so very much appreciate your comments! I agree with you! She took my son’s senior portraits, and he thought she was one of the coolest people around (and he is a good character judge.) And my interview was actually the first time we ever talked together, but it felt as if we had known each other for a long time.
      Thanks for listening!
