Carolyn developed an interest in clowning as she began to write a business plan for a future commercial business that would enable her to become an entrepreneur. As she transformed her vision into a business plan, Carolyn recalled the facial expressions of the children she encountered while accompanying a clown in Maryland who twisted and distributed balloons animals to children during an outreach. It was during the business plan writing discovery period that Carolyn decided to incorporate clowning for children’s entertainment at birthday parties to help bring joy, smiles and excitement to children and their families to create a lifetime of memories.
While attending a children’s entertainment conventions in Northern Virginia, a couple classes on the schedule presented the perfect opportunity for Carolyn to explore a skill she was researching – balloon décor. It was those two classes that motivated Carolyn to pursue the art of balloon décor on a professional level that mesmerized her curiosity and deepened her research.
