When Jean is not busy cheering on her two handsome boys at their games, she's busy cheering on her team for contracts, checking call counts and calling you for your next payment.  A decor aficionado, Jean loves up cycling, decorating and spending time with her family.

Decorating Tip: Don't hang your artwork too high. It should be only about 6 inches from the top of the sofa or on a wall without furniture under it- it should be eye level, assuming the average person is 5'6" tall.

While Christie won't admit to driving a minivan, she's still the coolest mom we know.  Always focused on sales (and absolutely nothing else), you can always call Christie for a great booth rate! In her free time, Christie enjoys spending time with her husband, three kids and two dogs.

Decorating Tip: Fight the urge to match. Retail stores love to perpetuate the fallacy that everything has to match. They would love for you to buy everything in sets, but don't do it! A few pieces with the same styling are fine, but any more than that and your home has the lifeless, generic look of a furniture showroom.

Rachel brings her previous show knowledge from her former employer. When she's not making 60 dials a day, she is busy planning fun team building office events. She lives in a little apartment in the heart of one of the 216's most hip streets. She loves to travel in her free time & spend time hanging with her nephew.

Exhibitor Tip: Treat your exhibit space display as if your celebrity icon is about to walk in the show and come up to talk with you. You want it to be clean, creative & eye-catching. Make sure you stand out from your competitors as this is one of the top parts of the show that consumers will remember when making business decisions. Most importantly though, have fun with it!

Decorating Tip: 
Less is best. Go through you house and purge once in a while. Buy bigger furniture or artwork that you love and spend less on a lot of smaller décor so that you can change it later without feeling guilty!
