Sink or Swim

What do you do when your life as you know it is falling apart before your very eyes? Do you give up, throw in the towel, or do you create a brand that will empower many more than you’ll ever meet?

Hi. My name is Marlene Dillon, and I am the author of I’m Proud to Be Natural Me! Many do not know that this awesome and empowering book was written and illustrated by me at the lowest time in my life. I began creating the I’m Proud to Be Natural Me! products two days before the end of my marriage. As a stay-at-home mom, I had no money of my own so I knew that I only had two choices: push myself to create enough products to take care of myself and my then 2 year old or give up. The latter was not an option for me. Over the next year or so, I stayed up late and got up early—often with my daughter sleeping on my lap—and not only created at least a hundred products but wrote, illustrated, and self-published I’m Proud to Be Natural Me!
