Monday Motivation Talent


"Everyone has talent, but the successful have the courage to use it."
Karlene

Last week at the Women in Aviation conference, Rod HighTower EAA's ~ Experimental Aircraft Association ~ President/CEO spoke to the group and shared an incredible video of the excitement to come at Air Adventure, Oshkosh, July 23-29, 2012. But first he introduced his greatest accomplishment~ his family.

Hilary, Rod, Heidi and Hannah

It happened to be bring your daughter to the conference day, and Mr. Hightower brought his three daughters. But today I would like to introduce you to one in particular: Hilary.

Hilary: age 12

Hilary started the business Hilary's Happy Pots, and she donates her proceeds to the Make A Wish Foundation. How does a 12-year-old start a business? It begins with sharing her talent, followed by inspiration and then a lot of work that she calls fun.

It all started when Hilary was on a field trip to a low-income school and was doing arts and crafts with the kids. She loved painting the pots so much, she began painting them at home and one thing led to another. A business woman was born. She recruited a team of friends for production, and her little sister with some of her friends as the advertising team.

At first they donated their proceeds to Outreach International Food Program, and now donate them to Make A Wish. To read more about Hilary's story and meet her team click on Hilary's Happy Pots, about us.

Together they create and sell Hilary's Happy Pots


This amazing young lady has found the courage to paint the world beautiful, and is using her talent to support those less fortunate. Please take a moment and purchase a Happy Pot. One small gift goes far in the world.


Thank you Hilary, and your team. I am so honored to have met you! And looking forward to my pots.

Enjoy the Journey!

    1. Thanks Linda, I don't think she will ever lose that spirit. This is something that shines through her smile and sparkles in her eyes... obviously bubbling over from her heart. An amazing family creates kids who do amazing things. I'm looking forward for my happy pots... one for each grandchild. :)
