Honored to one of the many Women Entrepreneurs featured in the Valentines Day Special: "A Love letter to my Business."
After 30 years in the banking industry which had layers of policies, regulations and demanding sales goals, I love being in business that allows me freedom to be creative without approval. Best thing, I traded in my business suit for shorts and t-shirts. My years in the banking industry truly prepared me as entrepreneur. As a business owner, doing what I love with the same dedication and passion is the best feeling in the world. I can't wait to get up in the morning and get to work.
Thanks to Angie Higa of Sky Dreams LLC
My favorite gift I've bought this season is a travel blanket with matching neck pillow by Sky Dreams, a Mililani company founded by Angie Higa, a retired banker and seamstress who loves to travel. It's convenient when you're on the go, especially if you have children. If you're at a family gathering and your kids want to fall asleep, you can just whip out your Sky Dreams travel blanket. The machine-washable blanket-pillow combos come in a variety of fabrics, in shoulder bag, backpack and duffel styles starting at $35. Buy online at skydreamsllc.com or at A Little Bit of Everything, 725 Kapiolani Blvd., 589-0045. I love it! --Pablo Mauricio, Waipahu
