People often ask me “How do you manage?”, “What’s your secret?”

With three children; four if you count my husband, five stores (and more on the way), and other balancing acts between life and work…it’s challenging, but, in all fairness I never feel like I’m doing anything out of the ordinary. I’m simply living my dream.

So, what is my secret? Do I even have one?

Success can be defined in many ways, and many elements have combined to create my own. The most important of them all is the people in my life. I suppose this is my secret.

I go above and beyond to surround myself with wonderful people. I choose to be around, and work with, people with a rare soul and a big heart, who are unique and incredible, each in their own way.

It might sound straightforward, but it isn’t. Every business or organization is only as good as the people that create it – for better or worse.

Never compromising, I spend a lot of my time and energy choosing the people I want to be part of my business and life. A unique connection makes me put extra effort in teaching the ropes and learning from my partner in return.
So that’s my secret. And I’m happy to share with you these photos of the amazing RUTI team, wearing their favorite new collection items.

Words fail me as I try to describe what these exceptional individuals mean to me, but as a picture is worth a thousand words, I’m sure my feelings will come across nonetheless.

Love,
Ruti.
