Meet Carol Gardner. She is what Forbes magazine considers a “late bloomer” in the business world, and has been compared to Martha Stewart and Julia Child. And why has she been compared to these two women entrepreneurs? How did she get to this point?
Well, she was recently divorced, depressed and broke. Carol didn’t know what to do with her life, so she asked a friend who responded with these wise words: “you either need to get a therapist or a dog.”
We couldn’t agree more. And as we know, dogs really do help people who struggle with depression. So Carol got Zelda, and Zelda became her dog model. Let us explain. Zelda modeled for a few pictures, and now they have a business empire.
Cards, figurines, posters, stuffed animals, plates, toys, towels, they make everything! They’ve built a Zelda empire together and now Carol is a successful businesswoman. And it’s all thanks to Carol reaching out in her time of need.
