• Name: Isabel Martinez
• Age: 63
• City of residence: Victoria
• Current title: Seamstress at Tailor-Made Sewing
• First job: In high school, I worked cleaning homes.
• What it taught me: I learned that everybody is different - even when it comes to how they want their houses cleaned. What worked for one person didn't always work for another. It taught me that you have to please your customer.
