We’re celebrating the birthday of Topical BioMedics, Inc. COO Aurora Paradise this week, honoring her birth date of January, 23.
Having just attended the largest board sports and beach/resort lifestyle trade show in the world, Aurora is celebrating in Florida with Topricin President and Formulator Lou Paradise – a couple in Paradise!
Though many know Lou from his educational webinars, it is a well-liked fact here at Topricin that Behind Every Great Man, Is a Great Woman….
Interesting Note: The first printed citation of that quote is from the Texas newspaper The Port Arthur News, from February 1946 that was headed – “Meryll Frost – ‘Most courageous athlete of 1945′”: “As he received his trophy, the plucky quarterback unfolded the story of how he ‘came back’. He said ‘They say behind every great man there’s a woman. While I’m not a great man, there’s a great woman behind me.'”
For sure, Aurora manages it all – marketing, financial, to customer service operations at Topical BioMedics. As Marketing Director, Aurora develops and oversees all advertising campaigns in print, broadcast and e-media, as well as developing all promotional materials. As Acting CFO Aurora oversees all accounting functions including cash and debt management. As Chief Operating Officer she oversees all daily operations including staff management, purchasing, inventory management, and order processing and fulfillment.
And she’s a beauty….formerly, Aurora was the first Business Development Director
at Mary Kay Cosmetics in Staten Island, New York. There, she oversaw 150 professionals, and was responsible for the group’s successful expansion into the local metropolitan marketplace.
One of the coolest truths about Aurora [which her two sons will attest to] is that when her two boys were teenagers and into skateboarding, with no skateboard shop near, she decided to open up her own. Always an entrepreneur!
Loving Mother and Grandmother, Friend, Wife, Boss, and Mentor – we raise our glasses to celebrate Mrs. Paradise.
