Marilyn Mueller with Premier Design Jewelry welcomed CEO to our home on Lake Hillsboro to see how she has grown her jewelry business over the years. Marilyn was a stay at home mom who enjoyed crafts and art. "My husband and I did woodworking crafts," which they sold at shows for a time.

But then, "a friend from church invited me to host a jewelry show," she explained. "I had very little self esteem, very low confidence. So, I learned how to wear the jewelry, I learned how to speak [in front of people]. I was so nervous when I started [out]. I used note cards, my hands shook." But, she smiled, "confidence comes with doing. Sometimes you have to fake it until you make it!"

Marilyn hosted as many as fifteen shows a month for a time. As she grew her business she began to develop others who entered the business. Now she balances her events with her investment in leading others to improve their sales.

Marilyn invited the team to take a personality survey which led into the discussion about teamwork and leadership. Team members explained their results and compared them with the DISC results they take at the beginning of the year.

Marilyn reminded the team to be true to themselves and use their unique gifts and personalities to serve others. As she shared at the onset, "I've got a service to offer!" Marilyn takes pride in helping women become confident in who they are by expressing their confidence in what they wear. "I want women to come in and, see that sign." She pointed to a sign with the letters MMFS. "The women who come here are encouraged to say, 'Make Me Feel Special,' and that's what I do."
