My Resume

Brian King BRIAN KING 

Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

About me.  I have always loved paper and ink.  It all started with notebooks and office supplies – I was a very organized child.  It all quickly evolved to stationary and stamping.  I am happy when I’m stamping, thinking about stamping or talking about stamping.

My History with Stampin’ Up!.  I was invited by a coworker to my first Stampin’ Up! workshop in December 2002.  I signed up with Stampin’ Up! on the spot and was excited to fill my craft room (a small, spare bedroom) with Stampin’ Up! supplies at a discount.  I quickly ran out of space and dropped after about a year-and-a-half.  I boxed it all up.  When I moved in 2011, I unpacked my boxes of stamps, inks and paper.  I now had space so decided to join Stampin’ Up! again.  I re-joined in 2012 because I knew it was the best way to earn free products and to earn the privilege of products at a discount.  I had no desire or intent to build a business out of this.

Accomplishments.  I am an accountant and a businessman.  My college and graduate studies were focused in Accounting and Business Administration.  As a manager in Corporate Accounting, I honed the skills to support a stamping business.
