The Lucky 13

    The Lucky 13

    If you've visited our website you may notice a common theme.

    The Lucky 13. The number 13 is somehow positively tied to my soul. 

    As a little girl, I was adopted by a man with the 13th for his birthday. 

    As an adult, my first real taste of marketing was at a local theme park. I was hired by a man with another 13th birthday. Mr. 13. It was there that I learned about my professional capabilities. Mainly that they were limited. Really limited. It could have been a field that I excelled in if I had been more patient. More disciplined. More structured. More focused. Sadly, I was rarely any of those things. I did however observe Mr. 13. I learned a lot about being an entrepreneur in those years. I was a good little sea sponge even if Mr. 13 never noticed. I couldn't remember a lot of what he said to me, but oddly enough I still remember his phone number to this day. Isn't it odd that his number ended with 1301?

    Anyway, moving on.

    Along the way there were dozens of other examples where the 13 followed me, but it shouldn't be surprising that Jose and I's anniversary fell on a 1 3 too. Back then, I still didn't think too much of it. It wasn't until 2013 that I really even started to notice.

    By the time I opened Treasures by the Sea in 2014, it was no surprise at all that our street address was 1301. 

    This year in 2017, when we reached our highest day of revenue, it too fell on the 13th. When we opened our doors for the second time in 2017, it also fell on the 13th of the month. 2 months later I discovered that both of our domain names, which were purchased almost a year apart, had both been purchased on the 13th.

    Lately, we have embraced the luck of the 13 and we see it everywhere we go! 

    Now we share the luck of the 13 with you in everything we do, because it is the lucky 13 indeed. 

    We know we are weird for this and we are okay with it.

    In numerology 13 is the luckiest number. It would be interesting to know if your name reduces down to 13. Google a numerology site and see😉

    My birthday is 12-13 💕 I was also born on Friday the 13th


    Like you, I married my favorite funny, talented and supportive friend on the 13th. It was a Friday in Las Vegas. Elvis was there. That was 20 years ago. I’m a lucky mermaid!

    I love this and have felt a strong connection to this number since I was a little girl. It seemed good things happened on this day especially when it landed on a Friday. My best friend who attended one of your seminars in Greenville was born on a 13th and my son was born on her birthday this year.
