We all have to be reminded, from time to time, that bliss is a state of mind, and happiness is a choice. Give a "10 Little Rules" book to someone you love (or yourself!): Learn to listen to the whispers, chart a new path, and live the life of bliss that is your birthright.

Carol’s inspiration for the business: In 2008, my world was imploding: In the midst of the recession, my marriage ended. I lost a business and found myself in a strange and empty nest. As I processed it all, I realized I had been living by everyone else’s rules. I sat down to write, and the “10 Little Rules” concept was born. Since then, it’s expanded into a growing community of authors and a series of books. Our mission is to share our positive approach to life, taking full responsibility for our own bliss, on our own terms.

How Saint Rose helped Carol’s career: I learned, through the public communications program at Saint Rose, that the best path is your own. Working alongside creative, professional women and men who were deciding what their careers should look like gave me the grounding I needed to launch a successful freelance career and run my own agency. I’m especially grateful to Pamela Sawchuk Brown, who offered me an internship and my first professional agency job.
