Tis the season for holiday shopping and Valerie McKinney-Walker has put together the Ultimate One-Stop Shopping and Indulgence Experience which takes place this Saturday from noon-6pm at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds. Entry and parking is free!
Valerie describes herself “as a very Proud Daytonian, who graduated from Trotwood Senior High School in 1986, happily married for 23 years and Uber-proud Mom of an amazing Son, who is a Junior at Miami University Hamilton. She started her first business in 2008 Scentsational Gifts, a gift basket business.
“I love helping small businesses grow their business,” and that’s the driving force for Valerie and her team that plan and execute the Indulge event twice a year. She said that “over the past 10 years I’ve learned to not take things personal, it’s all business. To have standards and expectations of your brand and don’t sway from that…remain persistent. If God given you the vision, the path is already drawn out…it will be victorious, you just have to work it. Will there be bumps along the way?, Of course, that’s how you grow and learn.”
