I have been so blessed to have Christine Osborne in my life. She recently retired after creating and running Wonder Works toy store in Charleston, SC for 31 years. As a member of my mastermind group on the back end of her career, her professional and life advice has been invaluable to me. She’s one of the kindest, sunniest, and most giving people I have ever met. I hope you enjoy meeting her on this episode of The Iceberg.
After 31 years, Wonder Works Head Magic Maker, Christine Osborne, recently sold her Mt Pleasant toy store location to an employee that had been with her for 26 years.
