This section used to say that Across The Line Cards was started by a "group of professionals in Silicon Valley who eschewed corporate life for something a bit more fun."
The truth is ... it was started by a bored stay-at-home mom of three boys who wanted to dilute her public participation in a venture peddling saucy cards.
She was merely trying to protect her husband, an active duty member of the military, from the embarrassment of being associated with a spouse who sells inappropriate greeting cards. When he left for a yearlong deployment to Afghanistan, she threw herself into the business to keep busy.
She has since been outed by several news publications as the "Army wife and soccer mom who sells racy cards." Won't he be surprised when he returns ...
Born in Lake of the Woods, Minn. (pop. 900) to a dad with a keen sense of business, and of humor, Lynn was encouraged by both parents to continue her education to "support herself someday." After dabbling in human resources, Asian art imports, and counseling psychology, she hopes that rather than clearing the room at a cocktail party with her inappropriate funny bone, she can use that bone to make a living. And anyway, she says, this is way more fun than corporate life.
Lynn's humor is often reined in by her much smarter and more civilized consultants, Jane Smith, Lois Kempenich Colaprete and Joanie Bigwood King.
Please buy her greeting cards if you think they are funny. Please.
