Downtown Disney: The Story behind the Business

Downtown Disney: The Story behind the Business Surprise Success.  It’s been a tough but miraculous way!   Single handedly making  all of my jewelry, and being the only employee was a big strike against me getting a kiosk at Downtown Disney.  I knew a miracle had taken place by being Branded, and creating packaging, and waiting for my TM all within 2 weeks… But I wasn’t sure that walking into the meeting with a photo album of pictures, and a single board of necklace samples, I would be taken seriously.  As I walked into the office at DTD by myself in my suit and sunglasses with my bag of samples in hand, I prayed for a chance.  When I walked out,...
