Housewives in the City: Tell us about your business and how you became the successful business woman you are today.
Junise Belizaire-Color Me Abstract was birthed after realizing some of the obstacles families face when trying to foster togetherness. Whenever I got together with friends, the complaints were always the same...going out was an inconvenience because you had to find a sitter, there was not much to do locally, and then there was the expense at the end. This pained me because I believe family is the foundation of our community so I was motivated to close these gaps.
