I read an interesting article the other day in USA Today. It hit home on more than one count. My husband's nephew was featured in it! Charleston has more than twenty somethings than teens. In fact it is higher than 2 to 1. What this means is that for one reason or another oung adults moved to Charleston and never left. They love it here! For more please read the full article here.
Leslie Haywood is Founder and President of Charleston based Charmed Life Products, LLC, and the inventor of Grill Charms™. She was a stay-at-home to two daughters until April of 2006 when a very spicy light bulb moment during a dinner party in her West Ashley home moment thrust her into the entrepreneurial ring. Despite a diagnosis of breast cancer in June 2006 and a bilateral mastectomy in August 2006, she launched her product Grill Charms™ November of the following year. Since the debut of Grill Charms™, she has garnered national media attention from shows like CNBC’s The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, and ABC's reality TV show "Shark Tank" as well as publications such as Everyday with Rachael Ray, Parenting Magazine, Inc Magazine, Health Magazine, Inventors Digest and many more.
