“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you too, can become great.” Mark Twain

I felt that this post needed a great quote for a great person.
This blog post is long overdue and  I am proud to introduce you to a truly unique individual.
A person that since our very first conversation on the phone was pleasant, persistent, and unique.

Meet Tonya

Tonya is our Designer at Baden, but really she is the "everything girl"!
If you have had the pleasure of meeting Tonya, then you know exactly what I speak of.

Since our very first meeting (which she will happily tell you I hired her before we even met....and then called her back and felt that I should maybe be a little more professsional and actually have a proper interview with her...) ....where was I ...oh yes...our very first meeting over a glass of vino at East Side Mario's.
Tonya and I hit it off right away....and have been partners in crime on the misson to build the business of Baden ever since! 

However...there is a few things that Tonya speaks often about that are some of her most proud accomplishments and I feel that I must share them with you as they are what makes her so fabulous.....

By far this is why Tonya is an amazing women! A single mom who constantly makes these boys her priority and is always working hard at Baden to create a better life for them (....the Christmas gifts that they are receiving has been a topic of conversation for weeks now!)

This is Tonya's "pimp" mobile! Yuppers...she absolutely loves this car!  And rightfully so...she has worked very hard for this one!

As you can see although she is a fabulous hair designer, she is a fantastic mom who works hard to create a good life for her kiddies!

Now....I must also speak of ....the "Head, Neck and Shoulder" massage she provides each of our guests when they have the pleasure of sitting in her chair....
you kinda feel like this when she's done........

Okay maybe I exaggerate a little...but it feels pretty darn good! 

All in all...Tonya is
"A really great one that makes you feel that you too, can become great!"
