In case you missed our social media posts last month, Mary Cheatham was in Paris for an entire week with her husband, Chip. She was able to visit the Keller Williams Paris office and present a Mastermind class on how to exponentially grow your business! We asked Mary Cheatham to send us her favorite parts about the trip, and now you can follow along and see all the places they went, and her favorite places to see! Read below excerpts from Paris from MC herself:
Earlier this month, I was lucky enough to teach at KW Paris, presenting to a group of agents about how to grow their businesses. My husband, Chip, and I had an absolute ball exploring the city and getting a little taste of France before and after the big day.
After an overnight flight, we arrived in Paris (my first visit!) where I was immediately taken with the bridges everywhere crossing the Seine. I especially loved the ones that don’t allow cars – my favorite was the Pont des Arts.

A picture is worth a thousand words. One single image can captivate, enlighten, even change a life; it is a fiercely powerful medium. A photograph is a visit with a stranger, a trip to an unknown place, a shock, or a wonderful surprise. Photos are thought provoking and can elicit feelings of happiness or hope, despair or calls to action. The catalyst is one single click of a button, one distinct moment captured, one extraordinary story told.
Mel O’Berry has been snapping pics since the 8th grade, the year she got her first camera as a surprise gift. She got her “professional” start on the yearbook staff and has continued to hone her craft, learning more about herself along the way. As a creative soul, the process has been a natural one and a delight. Mel has taken the time and the steps to pinpoint what works for her technically, including equipment (Canon) and process (digital mainly but she loves film!), and what ...

Jimmy Craig is an artist in every sense of the word… in heart, thought and execution. He is a professional, working artist. A lucky title and one he’s earned. Though anyone who creates art can rightfully lay claim to the title Artist, Jimmy Craig has the exceptional talent to back it up. His paintings transcend the ordinary. They are a glorious reflection of nature, of discarded objects, of tobacco fields, of light—whatever subject catches his fancy.
In kindergarten Jimmy Craig announced his calling...he knew he wanted to be an artist when he grew up. He got his official start in high school with paper and pencil and a serious knack for drawing, which led him to advanced art class, and design school at NC State soon after.
Jimmy Craig finds inspiration here at the Crystal Coast on our beaches and long stretches of shoreline. He marvels at how the colors are always changing, “the many fascinating moods they create, and the ...

1. At what age did you start baking? I am not sure of the exact age, but I grew up in my grandmother (Nanny) and mom’s kitchen. I would say by the time I was 3 or 4 I was involved in it.
2. What was the inspiration behind opening your own business? I had always wanted to open my own brick and mortar business, and specifically have it be a bakery. I wanted to have it in a little town, where you would get to know your regulars by name...I always loved everything about that! My husband had always wanted me to pursue that dream, and I just wouldn’t take that leap because I was comfortable in Corporate America. When he passed away in 2016, I kind of just knew it was the time for it. It was the time to chase the dream and to be able to show my kids that you can make something great and “rise” out of something so tragic.
3. What has been your most difficult hurdle? Being an entrepreneur isn’t easy! There doesn't seem to be enough time in a ...
