Practicing Lawyer Also Sells Luxe Goods

Like a number of others who market luxury goods to upscale clients, Maryann Mihalopoulos isn’t ready to give up her day gig.

A lawyer who runs a business litigation and divorce firm in Dallas, the 47-year-old mother of three also manufactures and sells Xela Aromasticks reports the International Herald Tribune. The product uses an ancient method and high-end materials to scent the air with fragrant oils.

What started as a tiny backyard operation in 2000 as grown to a seven-employee company with $1.5 in annual sales, she says. At the beginning, “I used to pay my hair stylist by the hour to investigate the oils.”
