A LITTLE BUSINESS HISTORY
BROWN PAPER COFFEE COMPANY
In 1997, after meeting my sweetheart and life-partner, Jeff, he helped me launch a network marketing gourmet coffee/tea/hot cocoa/biscotti & goodies company. I ran that business for more than 3 years, recruiting consultants in 5 states.
These are some photos I did the food design for which were used in our printed marketing materials and on the website for BPCC. The last one is a photo of me and Jeff at the time we were working on this business.
In 2000, while we were living on 20 acres of raw land we purchased on Central Oregon’s High Desert, I taught myself how to burn photo reproductions onto wood and leather. Eventually people started offering to pay me to create pieces for them. I built this into a business and continue to do this work currently. Visit My Pyrography Website HERE to view examples of my work. And My New Portrait Burning Site HERE.
At about the same time I also bought bolts and bolts of wire, semi-precious stone beads and jewelers tools and began teaching myself to make handcrafted jewelry. I’ve sold my creations ever since. Visit my website HERE to view examples of my handcrafted jewelry creations.
Shortly afterward I also taught myself WordPress website design and began actively building all of my own personal and business websites.
In 2003 I got my first deck of tarot cards. In 2008 I began working as a professional spiritual coach and guide. I worked professionally in this capacity for about 5 years. I continue that work for private clients, though not full-time as I used to.

An online magazine I started in 2009. I recruited a team of more than 25 raw-food chefs and healthcare professionals who contributed articles and recipes every month for 4+ years. The magazine is still online at www.eightypercentraw.com though my server was hacked in 2015 and I lost most of the content that had been there prior to that.
2019 – My most recent endeavor. This is an online magazine for the Keto/Low-Carb community. I am publishing everything on my own, at present, but look to a future where I may invite other guest bloggers and keto experts to contribute content to the magazine. In conjunction with this I’m also promoting specific low-carb brands as an Influencer Affiliate. The two brands I’m most excited about and most actively promoting are PERFECT KETO and KETTLE & FIRE Bone Broths. I’ll be devoting individual blog posts to their excellent products in the coming days and weeks, so look forward to that! And be sure to visit Keto Enthusiast for great low-carb recipes, health articles. and other awesome information!
