Well, hello, hello…
My name is Deana Srdic, and was born and raised in lovely Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, as a first generation Canadian. Both sides of my family are originally from Miljevci, Bosnia. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, with a major in Marketing Communications Management, and have a perpetual admiration for learning. I started All Things (Business) Beautiful as a class project in September 2012 as an arena to observe marketing campaigns and share my input. Since then, I have contributed to my blog frequently sharing beauty products reviews, goals, personal moments throughout the week, and even dabbled in recipes and fashion. This blog is a place to document pleasure; health and wellness, personal growth goals, beauty must haves and marketing morsels. I hope All Things (Business) Beautiful inspires readers to take baby steps towards bettering themselves and allows them to uncover their inner passions; it sure has encouraged me.
