Kari Warberg Block is living proof that you can take the girl out the city, but you can't take the city out of the girl. It was the early 90's, and Kari was working behind the cosmetics counter at a high end department store. She was so successful, that

A great story which shows how perseverance and believing in a dream can really pay off in the end! It also shows how wrong other people can be, so you shouldn't get discouraged if you have a strong feeling about something- just pursue it and don't let others negativity get in the way. I also like the fact that her product doesn't kill rodents nor pets (who often can ingest rodent poison with devastating consequences)! Also her product isn't toxic for humans to be around which is great too. A very inspiring article that shows the power of individual ingenuity and a can do mindset. Thanks Barb!

what a remarkable story - I dare say perfume is far better for the mice (at least they can live elsewhere) but more importantly, perfume is better still for our environment by eliminating all the side effects caused by pesticides!! thanks for posting!

Thanks Barb! Great story. Naysayers contribute nothing, even when there's nothing to lose! Sometimes it only takes following through on one great idea to change the whole game. Thank goodness Kari kept her enthusiasm alight!!
