BODIE and FOU: mentors & love

I've spoken about Karine before, she's the French founder of the English online store BODIE and FOU. We met via our blogs, and since meeting we've developed a very gratifying business relationship. BODIE and FOU was my first British account, which was very exciting to me on a personal level, but also satisfying on another level as she sold the bejesus out of Trops and wrist wraps at Christmas time.
We've never met in person, but Karine is the type of woman who, as a business owner, (and mother) I admire. When she gets an idea she seems to work tirelessy to make it come to fruition. We emailed a few times today and I asked her if she'd be interested in carrying the red Mini Sac for Valentine's day and she said, that yes, she was interested, but that it may be late to get any press for Vday (it's true.) But that this gave her an idea to do something for Valentine's day. This was at 3p.m. PST (11p.m. time of Greenwich Mean.) A few hours later I found this blog link on Twitter. She gets things done! I love that. It's her stick-to-it-iveness and wherewithal and all those other good compound words that makes her business so relevant. Well, that and her good taste.
