Beary Fabulous Time with Maxine Clark - CEO of Build-a-Bear

Maricris and Maxine Clark
Ballroom of America B 

I intended to post some useful and smart updates on my recent Social Media Conference at Disney via Disney Social Media Moms today but it's Valentine's Day and it's all about love. I'm still at Disney and still infused with awe at the recent conference but since it's love day, I'll sidestep the original intent. And with this, Maxine Clark immediately came to mind. This wonderful lady who I've immediately come to love by the sheer being of who she is in person and how she values each and everyone in her community just astounds me. She is a great representation of someone who has truly evoked the power of love and put it into action. Her story of how she started Build-a-Bear was conceived out of love and continues to spread that love through her creations of cuddly and bearyful stuff toys for our kids. She gave love and love she got in return. She inspires me and I DEFINITELY "want to be like her when I grow up".

"Thank you Maxine for your friendship 
and for being a wonderful advocate of love."

Happy Valentines to All of you. I wish you a day filled with love and blessings...And please watch out for updates in the next few days. If you're a mom hoping to get successful in the blogging business, you wouldn't want to miss these powerful and effective tools shared by Maxine Clark herself, Kathy Ireland, Marisa Winokur and Chris Brogan.
