    As a designer and entrepreneur, products for women have always been my focus. In my first company DianneSullivan Designs, I designed and made fun jewelry for young women to buy in boutiques and department stores. That company transitioned into Miraflores Designs which designed and supplied custom designed soap, shampoo and other toiletries for hotel chains including Hyatt, Sheraton and many others. After selling that company, my next company, Bay Linens, Inc, designed decorative bedding which was sold through Bloomingdales, Bed, Bath & Beyond and other retailers. Our home decor products, with the brand, China Seas, was sold at Isetan Department stores in Japan. At this stage of life I'm connecting with other women over 50 who want to examine their interests and to connect with each other. At ZestNow.com I want to gather useful information and inspiration for this new phase of life.
