(I-BusinessNews.Com, September 07, 2015 ) Camarillo, CA -- Rebecca Carasco, CEO of FreshTek, has always had a sense for the adventurous, a feeling that she would rarely conform to the norm.
"I never envisioned myself in the traditional workplace," she says. "I knew from a very early age that I wanted to be a flight attendant and enjoy the benefits of shift work. Working nights and weekends rarely fazed me, unless of course there was a party I was missing! What I did enjoy was the flexibility that an unconventional schedule gave me. To me it was strange that most people could only work out, shop or visit the bank during a 60 minute lunch break. I felt that I had the best of all worlds by having a great career traveling the world and living my home life to the fullest on my terms. Always selecting quiet times to hit the gym and invariably going against the rush hour traffic. As commuters headed into London in the morning, I was driving west from Heathrow to my home in Bristol."
Years later after moving to Southern California, Carasco worked for a few years as a nanny, a job that she had classically trained for upon leaving high school in her home country of England. The jobs were enjoyable and offered many of the same benefits of being outside of the traditional workplace but she felt that working for herself was the ultimate goal.
Her approach was two-fold. She started, ran and maintained a domestic help agency for a few years. At the same time alongside her husband Kevin, they embarked on a long term goal of investing in real estate. Beginning with buying and holding single family residences and moving on to fourplexes and ultimately large out of state apartment complexes, their real estate gambit took a strong and profitable hold.
"Real Estate really was the springboard for us," says Carasco, "it has facilitated 13 years of independence, freedoms and international travel that has exceeded our hopes and dreams. Now, as the real estate market threatens to peak again, we have diversified into an online sales business."
The new business is the parent group UK Crew LLC hosting the brand names FreshTek and Till Harvest. "What this new business means for me personally is the continued lifestyle, freedom and opportunity to learn and grow something new including both challenges and rewards."
And that she says, is addicting.
FreshTek is committed to providing both healthy and modern products for the entire family. Their new line of water bottle infusers allows the infusion of a variety of fruits and herbs for healthy hydration.
