Flashback to Karen Mertes’ South Tampa Chamber Spotlight Interview

With the Spring Chari-Tea event around the corner, this Flashback Friday is dedicated to the South Tampa Chamber Member Spotlight interview from 2014 (The very first Spring Chari-Tea Announcement!)

Below are a couple of the questions from the STCOC spotlight:

What is your organization?  What do you do? 
I’m Karen Mertes, Lt Col (Ret) from our United States Air Force.  I’m Founder & President, Fulfill Your Destiny, Inc., www.fulfillyourdestiny.org, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that financially helps people in our greater Tampa Bay community.  I use an entrepreneurial business model in fundraising for Fulfill Your Destiny.  I raise money in 11 ways, 5 of which involve my offering a professional service or product for donation.  As a professional motivational speaker, I donate my honorariums directly to Fulfill Your Destiny.  I share with national audiences how to triumph through tragedy, command your destiny when you INSPIRE yourselves and others to live the life you’ve always envisioned.

Tell us something about yourself that’s not business related!
I’ve had a life-long interest and appreciation for everything tea – hot or iced.  I’ve even taken specialty classes about the many benefits of drinking tea and have created Fulfill Your Destiny’s signature event, our Spring Chari-Tea in part to share my enthusiasm for all of tea’s fabulous benefits with our greater Tampa Bay community.  I’d welcome hearing about your favorite tea beverage and would enjoy treating you to one!
