How I became “Martha”
For years, as I traveled around the country for my own
business, people thought...
I was Martha.
When I looked in the mirror, I only saw me!
One day I was in a store with friends, I saw
the “MARTHA STEWART LIVING” magazine. I picked it up and said to my friends “I
don’t look like her, do I?
They both looked at me and laughed saying “YES - YOU DO! " I bought the book and when I got home I saw pictures I had on a shelf of me with friends. When I held my pictures next to the pictures of Martha, I was shocked! Oh my God, I do look like her!
My similarities with Martha go far beyond my looks.
I was born and raised in Connecticut where Martha lived. I am very familiar with her East Coast persona and style. We have a similar low tone of voice and East Coast accent.
Martha and I are both from large families.
She is one of 6; I am the 2nd of 7. I was raised in a heavily Polish
town; consequently, we both love all the same wonderful Polish foods. We both were
self-employed and like Martha, I have always had the freedom to call my own shots.
(Unfortunately not to her success!) But, like Martha, I have always loved my work!
After being self-employed for 25 years doing trade shows, I worked a year as a Talent Agent and Event Planner. It was here that I learned being a LOOK-ALIKE could be a fun and rewarding career.
This new career allows me to incorporate all the experience I gained from years of traveling the country doing National Trade Shows with my experiences as a Talent Agent.
As a Talent Agent/Event Planner I worked the other side of corporate events. I booked many look-alikes and helped facilitate great events by getting the party going. I was very interactive between the guest and the look-alikes. This experience opened the doors to the wonderful opportunity combining both careers.
Because I owned my own business for many years and I did National Trade Shows, I am very aware of all the expense, time, expectations, planning and
hopes that go into every trade show or corporate event. I know that different
types of businesses have very different goals by which they measure the success
of a show. Some shows are sales driven, others are information driven and
others seek exposure and product recognition. But, no matter what the goal is,
it can’t be met without getting the attention of the potential customers!
It would be an honor to work with you to achieve your goals.
“Sharon as Martha”- It's a Good Thing!
