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 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.
