Who is A Sweet Adventure?
My initial focus was on the property management industry having been a property manager myself for approximately 8 years and in the real estate industry for over 19 years.
As I looked for gifts for the tenants in the buildings I was managing I would complain that I could make better gifts than I was finding and that everything was so expensive.
I began building my business while continuing to work full-time as a property manager during the first year and part-time during the next three. In August of 2002 I took the leap of faith and left my part-time job and have been happily creating gifts full-time ever since.
A Sweet Adventure was started in 1997 by
Julie Taylor with the help and encouragement of her
husband and father.
In 2001 I won my first design competition at the Orange County Gift Show. In 2002 I received my second first place award at a National Convention. Four more awards followed in the next two years and in July of 2004 I received the coveted award of "Master of Design and Marketing" and was honored to then become an instructor at the National Convention that helped me improve my craft build my business.
I now was able to give back and help other business owners improve their skills and grow.
In August of 2008, I once again won two design competition awards and travel the country looking for new and unique products to provide my clients with the most up-to-date, trend setting items found today.
