Hive Member Spotlight - Cheryl Rosenberg - Orange County, CA

As of post time Cheryl's father has been very ill - we wish your Dad the best get well wishes Cheryl and hope things improve...

I have been married to my husband, David, for 5 ½ years. We have two kids, a son, Sawyer, who’s 3 ½ and a daughter, Sage, who will be 2 in September. We also have two furkids, our mutts Gable and Garbo. We live in Orange County, Ca, otherwise known as the OC.

We live right next to the town where the Real Housewives of Orange County is filmed. But I have no silicone, drive a Honda and live in a teeny over-priced house – so that’s about as real as it gets out here! In my previous life (before kids) I was a newspaper journalist. I still love to write and have two blogs (soon to be three with UB!). I have already embarked on an adventure this year, as I am currently training for my first marathon through Team in Training, the endurance sport fundraising arm of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

I am a New Year’s Eve baby (a nice tax deduction for my CPA dad) and my sister was born on the same day, six years prior. My mother likes to say we’re her twins.

I am probably the last person anyone would imagine doing this, as I haven’t been a fan of home parties and only went to the UB one to support my friend. But I had a GREAT time at the party and loved the scent I created. When I wore my lotion for the first time, I made everyone I know sniff me – and also strangers who came within sniffing distance! My husband saw my enthusiasm and encouraged me to sign up now. I am a stay-at-home mom so bringing in a little income with flexible hours also is an incentive.

My husband is incredibly supportive and excited for me. My friends – who know my usual feelings on home parties – are equally as excited because they figure if I’m this pumped up, it must be good stuff! Everyone who I’ve talked to about UB can’t wait for me to have the first party!

My personality test results were herby. I think I possess some traits from each of the groups. Plus, I wanted to be spicy!

I hope to bust the OC market wide open! There is a ton of opportunity out here. I spoke to a friend on the phone tonight about UB, and she already is interested in become a fragrance designer too.

A personality trait that I think will help me be succesful is that I'm very social and find it easy to strike up conversations with just about anybody. I have a varied circle of friends and think I network well.

Shawna's Fun Questions:

If you were a tree what type would you be and why?

I would be a jacaranda tree. Even though they are beautiful on their own, they are even more breathtaking in a group – the importance of teamwork!

If you were given $1,000 for your Urban Botanic business how would you use it?
Yikes – that’s a tough one! I think I have to wait to see how the whole thing works before deciding.
