LuAnn and Peggy Morgans’ Ah-Ha moments:

“You have a business, not a you.” - LuAnn Nigara

 

We want to make this business so that the person who buys it doesn’t have to know anything about window treatments. - LuAnn Nigara

 

There’s nothing wrong with the personality. But that personality doesn’t align with what you want. - LuAnn Nigara

 

Part of what my role is is empowering you to listen to your own inner voice. - LuAnn Nigara
