The Roots Of SuccessMore Less
It's a place that suits the multifaceted Olga to a "T." With her deep love for the calm of the countryside, passion for the arts and gardening, and dedication to her career in real estate helping others reach their goals, there's certainly more than meets the eye to Olga. You might be surprised to learn she was raised on a farm in Illinois, the second child of Ukrainian immigrants who fled to the U.S. during World War II. But then, that upbringing and the courageous example of her parents explains quite a bit about Olga's deep-rooted work ethic and can-do attitude. She honed her natural artistic ability at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and eventually moved back to the countryside to raise her own son in a family-friendly environment similar to the one in which she grew up.
You might also be surprised to learn that Olga is an internationally renowned gardener, famous for her hybrid hosta plants. With her lifelong interest in gardening, Olga first got interested in hybridizing the plants with a neighbor and immersed herself in the art and science involved in the process. Now, fellow gardeners travel from as far away as the U.K. and Japan to see her unique plants, and she has been recognized as one of the top hosta experts in the world. At first glance, Olga's plants simply look beautiful; but behind every new plant lies a painstaking development process that can take more than five years. "When you see the finished product, the results of all the hard work and patience goes beyond even your greatest expectations," she says. Visit TheHostaLady.com.
