As the Co-founder of Butterfly, I have been honored to meet a plethora of intelligent, savvy and witty women in business. One such woman is Diana Kostas. Diana is the Director of Business Development for Worth New York, a $100 million dollar luxury clothing sales business that allows women to succeed in their own business, while balancing family and community involvement.
Proving that the aforementioned is NOT just a claim, I offered my services to become an Agency Leader for Worth with the intention of sharing my experience with you. So, what does that mean exactly? I am committed to hosting/selling the spring and summer 2012 Worth New York line in my home, for just one week. I will document my experience and which will allow you to experience a run-through of the job by way of me!
Put simply, Worth New York, is offering YOU a career in fashion. I am offering you a behind the scenes look into the job of an Agency Leader, so that you may determine if in fact this is a job for you and your lifestyle.
Are you a natural leader with a large network of personal contacts who loves connecting with other women? If so, Worth New York is looking for YOU! (link to landing page-worth is looking for you!)
Here’s your chance,
Co-Founder and Mother

In life one hopes to be lucky enough to find a mentor- someone who helps to mold the person you dream of becoming one day. This person lifts you, guides you, and inspires you to be the best – often resulting in something you didn’t even know you were capable of. This person is Maureen Haynes-Starr. Maureen was my mentor over 15 years ago and firmly holds that position today. I watched her run a multi-million dollar budget as the Global Media Director for Elizabeth Arden Cosmetics with a great deal of awe and respect. Her uncanny ability to lead a team while making calculated decisions made me proud to work alongside her.
She helped me to propel my own career in advertising by giving me the tools and encouragement that I needed to succeed- down deep I wanted to emulate her work ethic with the hopes of achieving all that she had as woman in business.
Today I am the Co-Founder of MyWorkButterfly.com, a global online social network committed to empowering return-to-work and working moms. Maureen was instrumental to my growth as a business woman and now I am returning the favor to our community of mothers. Maureen was the first person I asked to be on Butterfly’s advisory board and continues to help us make strategic decisions in branding and marketing to grow our business internationally.
Any corporation would be lucky to have her. I know I am.
