Cynthia Heathcoe is the epitome of perseverance. Once a homeless single mother, she’s now a successful entrepreneur and winner of HFA’s inaugural HFA Emerging Star Award. She was also won the 2016 Entrepreneur of the Year with Palm Beach SCORE, a mentoring and education program for small businesses. Cynthia hosts her own radio show, “Make Your Room Happen” in Palm Beach Gardens, where she gives design tips and promotes her business and the charities and causes she’s so passionate about. Community involvement plays a vital role in Cynthia’s business model.  Her experience as a single mother living in a homeless shelter years ago gave her a greater connection with the importance of a place to call home and sparked her passion for helping others achieve their own dream homes. Cynthia is eager to share her story, inspire, motivate and help other retailers overcome the obstacles we all have.
