Bari J. Ackerman on staying open to trying new things

Today my guest is the ever energetic,  Bari J. Ackerman. She is a fabric, designer, seamstress, artist and all around can-do woman. After this interview, I realized that Bari is a woman who is simply not afraid of anything. If she sets her mind to learn a new skill, she is just going to push up her sleeves and do it. (She says it scares her husband, haha!) She started out designing bags and then needed her own fabric for the bags…so what does she do? She taught herself to design fabrics digitally! She took her graphic artist skills, a Wacom tablet and she was off to the races. She has designed  sewing patterns, several best selling fabric lines and now she is on the March to have her designs on everything. Her tenacity is remarkable. If you are on the cusp of throwing in the towel on any project, tune into today’s episode! Bari’s example will light a fire under you!

I love her motto:

“If  you don’t ask, you don’t get!”
