Interview 4 Inspiration is a new series I am very excited to share with you on Give Love Create Happiness. Here you will find a series of questions answered by inspirational people. People who have inspired me in one way or another, either through knowing them personally or through their work. I believe people are the best sources of inspiration; therefore it gives me great pleasure to share a little more about them with you in a series of questions.
To start things off I’m thrilled to open up Interview 4 Inspiration with the lovely Tina Haupert of Carrots ‘N’ Cake. Tina has turned her passion into a career. She is living her dream, and in fact this weekend you can catch her traveling posts from Orlando Florida!
I am fortunate to call Tina a friend. Not only were we in a sorority together (don’t laugh!), we were on Dance Team together (OK, you can laugh!). It was awesome. I definitely recall fondly our dance team days and pre-performance warm-ups, if you can call them that! 😉
Please welcome, Tina!
