About the Author:
As the daughter of an antique appraiser and gift shop owner, Kathy Ozzard Chism learned about selling with integrity at a very early age.
Kathy has been a top-grossing salesperson for such companies as Ethan Allen Interiors, Hot Spring and Caldera Spas, and Solatube International. She holds a B.A. in education, an A.A. in interior architecture/design, and is nationally certified and licensed in therapeutic massage.
Kathy's vast experience includes corporate event planning and management, owning her own interior design company, teaching 4th grade, ten years as a United Airlines flight attendant, and founding Dream One World, a global 501 ( c )( 3 ) nonprofit.
Thanks to a lifetime of many moves to many locations, Kathy has been creating garage sales, usually one or two per year, for nearly 40 years... all with great success. She is an expert at using her sales and management skills to take these events to new heights, and now lovingly shares her successful techniques with readers.
For Kathy, garage sales have become a metaphor for life - cleaning out the old to make room for the new, letting go of what is no longer needed, recycling to help our planet, and letting others now enjoy things we once loved.
Her Garage Sale Success Secrets guidebook teaches easy, proven ways to earn the MOST money possible from garage sale events, while learning some Zen-like tidbits about how clearing your spaces helps you live a happier, healthier, more peaceful, and less-stressed life!
