A little about our guests.
Jim & Maura have been together 38 years and married 34 years. They started these businesses together (and each is a part of the other’s business) about 5 years ago. This is the third time Jim and Maura worked together. They worked together at the same company out of college and later built a very successful manufacturers rep firm in the computer industry.
This time around they chose lifestyle businesses that combine their personal interests and global travel as they enjoy Life Re-Imagined.
They have a daughter and Maura home-schooled her while staying busy with their business.
Both are originally from New Jersey and Jim hails from exit 7A off the New Jersey turnpike for all you Great Adventure fans.
A little about their business.

One piece of advice (the nutshell version)
If you love what you’re doing and it makes you happy, it helps you grow and expand yourself and your happiness in life. If you don’t love what you do, you will become discouraged.
