On a given day, Rebecca tackles more than one job: she hosts Discovery’s Surprise by Design, which celebrated its 200th episode last year; owns her own interior garden and floral design business, Cole Creates, where she has recently completed her own furniture line that she hopes will be out by this fall; and writes books, three to be exact. “I don’t think that I have ever done anything that I am not proud of.” In the past 12 years, she has strived to pick projects based on how fun and challenging it is for her, not necessarily based on money.
However, her best work is done when she takes the time to reflect. “Create your own destinies, feel what is happening, listen to your gut and always surround yourself with people that are better than you,” Cole said. “It is better to have creative people around you that you can learn from and inspire you.”
