We had the good fortune of connecting with Terre Moshe’ and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Terre, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
Every Brand / Business story begins with a dream. My story started 10 years ago with my love for fashion and creative arts. My background is in Medical and Veterinary sciences, I had a dream to market my Afghan hound as my Brand in entertainment industry but no clue where to start. I was approached at a park in Los Angeles by a well-known photographer. He asked to have my afghan hound model for his book. He encouraged me to continue to pursue my dream. Afterwards I began reading books on Brand managing, took Advanced training classes with my dog and consulted with my children who were Brand & Design managers. With help of photographer friends, I built a fabulous portfolio, business cards & began marketing my afghan hound. It took 5 years of marketing, determination and persistence to finally get my first break. Today I have built a reputation for excellence in my Brand by my professionalism, marketing style, beautiful portfolio and most of all one of sweetest afghan hound model/actor Shai working in Entertainment Industry.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I have always been creative & artistic. I have stood out as a person who went her own way. Hippy style. Life has always been a series of challenges for me. My view on life is to always help others along with me on my journey to my goals. To overcome challenges in life I have taken one at a time even though I am a true multitasker. I always make my pro and con list and consult with people in my field of study. There’s always a way to achieve goals. My mom always said if you can’t go around the mountain, go through or over it. I’m proud to have worked most of my life helping others in the Medical & Veterinary fields. Animal Rescue and Volunteer to help others in need. As far as my Brand story…. this has always been a dream of mine to work in the Fashion & entertainment industry utilizing my creativity. with a beautiful afghan hound model/actor.
