Today started with a 4 am wakeup call so I had time to review some new Clover seller applications while the rest of the house was quiet, the puppy was asleep, and my visiting relatives (we're on vacation together this week) woke up. I'll admit it... I was feeling grumpy, stressed, and a wee bit sorry for myself.
So what a wonderful surprise it was to get an email from Serena Williams from The Farm Chicks letting me know that the Clover story -- and a little bit of my story -- would be included as part of her new blog series on entrepreneurs called "Time to Shine".
Serena is a mom of 4, a blogger extraordinnaire, a successful entrepreneur (having her own hugely popular Farm Chicks antique show), and a Country Living Magazine contributing editor. A super amazing woman and kindhearted to boot!

Clover has been a bright ray for me on some of my darker days. It has kept me motivated, focused, and engaged with the business of living. I am continually inspired and energized by my amazing sellers. They're passionate, creative, committed, and tenacious all on their own.
I love that my children have seen me busy and enthusiastic about this project. And more than anything, I love that they know that I stuck with it when things weren't looking so promising. Dig in, stay focused, and never give up. For this and lots of other things, too.
So thank you, Serena, for brightening my day today and for giving precious space on your blog to Clover and the other entrepreneurs you're featuring in your series.
Check out more about Serena at thefarmchicks.com and on Facebook and Twitter.
How about a Clover Market road trip to the Farm Chicks show next year!
