Spotlight Interview – Boomerang

WE ARE DELIGHTED YOU CHOSE TO BECOME A 2019 SL CHRISTMAS EXPO SPONSOR! WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO GET INVOLVED WITH THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY AND THE EXPO?
Im now in a position where my business is profitable in sl. I want to be able to share that profit with a charitable organization. American Cancer Society is a wonderful charity that I can be helpful to the “real” world through. I have been blessed to have my Momma on here for over 9 years and consider her rl family as some of my own. Her mother passed away of Cancer and believe this is the best way i can honour both my “Mom” and hers.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN SECOND LIFE?
11 years

WHEN DID YOU OPEN YOUR BUSINESS?
My first business TazManiac was opened in my first year. It has developed across the years from simply a kids store to items for everyone.

WHAT MADE YOU BECOME A VIRTUAL MERCHANT?
I really enjoy creating and bringing to life wild idea’s.

TELL US WHAT INSPIRES YOUR CREATIONS?
My inspiration comes from thinking outside the box. Never been one to just conform to the norm, and always had an inquisitive mind as to the wonders of the world and how they worked. Often coming up with some “crazy” logic in my childhood.
Before colour tv came out. the world was black and white. Logically they didnt take the colour out of the picture to make black and white.
(childhood logic)

WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN. REGARDING YOUR SL BUSINESS?
Let it grow, don’t worry any negative comments some may throw your way. Grow in your own time. Look around. Who stands out and why? How can you improve? Do your best and be truthful to what you enjoy. Others out there will find enjoyment in those items too.

WHAT CHRISTMAS TREE DECORATION ARE YOU AND WHY?
We used to have baubles that hang on the tree that had candy one side and a gift the other. We weren’t allowed to open them til Christmas day. To this day I struggle to hold back surprises from family and friends and often show off its glory a little to early but there is always that extra gift coming on the day.
