How does Armoire fit into your life?

Armoire has been the perfect compliment to my closet. I attend a lot of events and public speaking engagements and because of Armoire, always have something fresh and fun to incorporate. I am a busy, working mom and don’t have time to do a lot for shopping.  The shipping and return process is super easy and quick – two things I value greatly.

What’s your get sh*t done mode?

Prioritizing is the number one thing I do. Make a task list, plan out what I need to get done. I can’t be in 15 different places at the same time, plus I have two boys to take care of. I need to have tasks, things I can cross off my list and move on to another. I love having a team of people I can fall back on to distribute tasks to. You need to know how to delegate when you own 15 restaurants.
