I share my birthday with International Women’s Day on Wednesday, March 8, 2017. I love birthdays and I love to celebrate!
My Mom got me a great gift already. It’s a jewelry box that plays the song “Margie,” which is a jazz standard, but not too well-known today.
To celebrate with all of you, I’ve asked former and current clients, vendors and friends to offer discounts during the month of March for my readers, on products and services.
In addition, check out the free Publicity Opportunities below (some deadline today).
Enjoy the month!

When she isn’t formulating or blending, she’s sourcing quality ingredients (not as easy as it sounds- there is always a good, better, and best), researching, or keeping on top of the ever-demanding social media tasks that a business owner today must perform. A Jill of all trades, Waller aims to educate others on the perils of most mainstream skincare, and the benefits of the switch to safe, organic skincare.
