2MinuteTuesday – Kathy Patterson

What does Ink, iPhone and Inspiration have in common – this local stationery business owner.

 My interest in business comes from  ….

having worked in the stationery industry for over 30 years, (Whoops! How old am I???) and thought – “I can do this!!!”

I made my first dollar  …

helping clean a high school with neighbours when I was about 12.

If  I wasn’t doing what I am currently doing I’d be ….

probably working in a stationery store.  (But I’d really love to be babysitting my granddaughter full time so she didn’t have to go to daycare.)

My favourite song is  … 

any of Jason Derulo’s songs.

The best read I’ve had was  … 

any of Torey Hayden’s true story books. (Sad, but a good read)

My best investment was  …( on the spur of the moment) –

my iphone (sad but true!!)

My worst investment was  … 

ask me in 5 more years!!!

The best advice I’ve been given is  … 

“if you don’t try you’ll never know”. So! What did I do – went into business!!  Mmmmmm!!

My greatest achievement has been  … 

my 3 daughters!!!

The question I’m most asked is  … 

“why did I open a stationery shop??”
