ABOUT LINDA - Purveyor of Fine Living, Simple Pleasures, and a Life-Well-Lived
A New Englander by ancestry, and by choice, I’m a wife to my best friend Benjamin, mother and step-mother of five grown wonderful children, and I believe in charging through life with a smile and sense of humor. Life goes by too fast, so why not make every day as fun and enjoyable as we can? Right?
A bit about me:
My passion for living life to the fullest and curating a life of fine living has been evident from an early age, and for as long as I can remember, my curiosity and desire to learn or try new things (except for scary challenges like sky-diving) has been never-ending. I also enjoy sharing my passion for exploring the art of creating a life-well-lived, my fine living finds, and personal experiences with others in hopes to help them fulfill their own personal quest and vision of fine living.
Running multiple lifestyle sites, working on complementary business endeavors, all the while remodeling a home is a time challenge, but I love what I do. As long as I am helping others; it makes it all worth it.
A little bit about my company:
New England Fine Living is a boutique visual marketing and small business consulting company that introduces a select group of New England home and lifestyle businesses to consumers world wide. My role is that of an influencer, tastemaker, and brand ambassador for our clients.
Some my feel this home and lifestyle website is a blending of my two worlds, business and personal, but for me they are one in the same. I love what I do 24/7 and rarely compartmentalize the two.
In the past I’ve been part of the corporate world for beauty, fashion, marketing, and real estate, but at the same time, I was also working for myself knowing I was just not cut out for a 9 - 5 lifestyle. Since childhood I have been a solopreneur. I was a child who not only sold lemonade, but there were also fresh cut wild flowers from our fields, items I made, or special pre-loved treasures I found and resold.
I am a life-long entrepreneur, solopreneur, lifestyle expert, and small business motivator/consultant who has been in the business of sharing and promoting the art of living a life-well-lived and how to enjoy fine living professionally for over three decades. My entrepreneurial career has always included a focused business goal of proving that visual presentation can make a difference in how one feels or reacts within seconds. This includes designing a room, planning a party, or presenting ones self to the public. Several articles have been published about my silent marketing techniques and how I incorporate the five senses into both residential and business spaces. Past work has included planning large public events to introduce local businesses to consumers, fundraisers for local non-profit groups, or introducing national luxury brands and New England brands to the public online.
I'm a trained interior designer and event stylist, was the owner of an interior design studio and home and lifestyle store for over 20 years. I’m the creator and publisher of New England Fine Living magazine, a glossy coffee table publication showcasing life in New England inspired by New England’s finer side.
My life as an interior designer and small business marketing professional has generated numerous awards for my company including The Massachusetts Retailers Award for Visual Merchandising, several Readers Choice Awards, a local Rotary International award for creating and producing their most successful fundraising event... their masquerade balls, which are still on-going today.
My company or my work has also been in Entrepreneur Magazine, Success Magazine, North Shore Living Magazine, South Shore Living Magazine, Gate House Media, Salem Evening News along with Boston-based television stations and radio shows. A fun fact is that I was also selected and offered inclusion on two national interior design shows - HGTV Designer's Challenge and Design Star, but that's another story in itself.
