Meet Dara

My Story


Hi!  Thank for stopping by!  Let me take a second to introduce myself!


My name is Dara.  Post earning my MBA from the University of Michigan I enjoyed a profession in corporate marketing.  My marketing background includes a diverse experience within Fortune 200 consumer packaged goods, beverage and foodservice corporations.  I specialized in Foodservice Category Management, Retail Marketing, Brand Management and Regional Marketing.


I later began a career break while my children were younger.  I relaunched my career as a Time Management Specialist once both kids started school.


I currently manage a website/blog, conduct workshops, manage a product line, engage in social media and provide individualized client solutions.

Breakfast Made Easier! Tool

"I purchased the breakfast tool for my 4 year old daughter a few weeks ago.  We absolutely love the tool!  My husband is usually leaving the house when I get up in the morning, but he takes responsibility for making my daughter’s breakfast.  He was always guessing what she might want (or forgetting to ask her the night before).  In the morning while trying to get us out of the house for work and school, I would have to deal with, “… but Mommy, I don’t want cereal this morning!”  The breakfast tool has solved that dilemma and eliminated that morning drama.  Now, she just selects her breakfast the night before and my husband knows just what to make for her in the morning.  In fact, she loves it so much I don’t even have to prompt her to make her selection.  She does it all by herself!!"
