What does an Advertising Art college drop out + retail sales super seller become when she grows up? An entrepreneur! When Stacie Tamaki had the opportunity to create some bridal veils for a fashion show back in 1997 she jumped at the chance. Not because it was something she’d always dreamed of doing, she did it because it sounded interesting. Years later her custom couture bridal accessory company, The Flirty Bride, needed a website. She thought what better way to get one than to learn how to make it herself. The very first site she created transformed her into a sought after web designer and developer for other small business owners. After starting her own blog in 2006 and experiencing the benefits of blogging, Stacie became a blogging evangelist who now teaches small business owners about blogging and using social media to market their products and services.
