When Tobi Fairley announced the ::NEW:: Mastermind Consulting for 2013, I knew she had something up her sleeve, and boy did she deliver. As you know I was in Little Rock, Arkansas most of last week attending Tobi’s Mastermind Session focused on “Making Licensing and Sponsorship Magic”.
We started our three day session the first evening with a private tour of the “Oscar de la Renta: An American Icon” Exhibit at the William J. Clinton Presidential Center.
For those of you who think Arkansas doesn’t have a sense of style, I hope this changes your view. What a beautiful tribute to Oscar from not only the Clinton’s, but Laura Bush, Taylor Swift and Sarah Jessica Parker and more.
The video full of memories of Oscar’s philantropic work in the Dominican Republic and heart warming tributes from Anna Wintour, Barbara Walters and of course Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush. After touring the Presidential Center as well, we were treated to a great talk on licensing from Stephen Carlson of The DVG Group. He gave us great behind-the-scenes scoop on the world of licensing and what’s next for designers and the home furnishings industry. I loved Stephen and he had a wicked sense of humor. I can’t wait to see him again in High Point in October.
If you will be in Arkansas, I highly suggest you tour this beautiful exhibit.

P.S. I’ll be back tomorrow to share some of the details on our Deluxe Mastermind Trip to P. Allen Smith’s home, Moss Mountain Farm. It’s a treat, trust me!!!
