Marie Stuart Noel

Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to get into this industry?
Marie Stuart Noel : Oprah Winfrey inspired me to take a leap at entrepreneurship. In college, I started with selling clothing to my dorm mates. I then moved on to starting my own publication, Massachusetts Singles Magazine

Pro Media Mag : Tell us a little about your magazine Massachusetts Singles Magazine (MSM)?
Marie Stuart Noel : MSM was a print and online magazine directed at singles in the Boston area. Initially, the magazine had lot of success, even had a local TV show. In 2012, MSM folded. I made one last effort to save the issue by doing a social experiment which didn’t catch.

Pro Media Mag : You have been featured in different magazines and media outlets. How does it feel to be known for your work?
Marie Stuart Noel : I received a number of press for the magazine and the social experiment. It was an awesome feeling. However, once the magazine folded, I went out of the spotlight to focus on family and further my career. I enrolled at Northeastern University and earned a master’s degree in regulatory affairs, in 2014.

Pro Media Mag : What brought you into real estate business?
Marie Stuart Noel : After graduate school, I worked in clinical trial management. I build my skills and my cash flow. Since my family is in the real estate business, I already knew the ropes, having helped me mother manage several properties. I purchased my first property in 2016 and since then have acquired 5 tenants. The property funds helped me start a foundation to help young girls get trade skills- EWO foundation. I also was able to use some of that fund to launch my party rental business, Boston Throne Chairs

Pro Media Mag : Tell us about your experience with your rental business ‘Boston Throne Chairs’?
Marie Stuart Noel : Running Boston Throne Chairs has come up with a number of challenges for me. During my first 2 months in business, I lost my primary supplier. This was a major set back that affected sales. I lost 5 clients in one day. Since the company had nearly 20 throne chairs in stock, I leveraged the chairs at hand by renting them only. The rentals do well and business is growing steadily

Pro Media Mag : What kind of response you have received?
Marie Stuart Noel : We have received some very positive feedback and are booked every weekend until September. We are working to get more bookings during the week.

Pro Media Mag : Anything else you are doing recently ?
Marie Stuart Noel : I am very much into health and fitness. My motto is Wealth in Health. I have grown my Instagram account through various squat challenges, to help people get moving toward positive living through my lifestyle brand, Marie Stuart Livin’

Pro Media Mag : How do you manage all that? Our readers would like to know the secret 馃檪
Marie Stuart Noel : To manage it all, I have to focus on the essentials, starting with health and mental clarity. Letting go of the non-essentials and embracing what truly matters. Doing is less, and let go more. Now I only manage my property, and the party rental business on the weekend. I occasionally speaks at high schools and colleges about the importance of social entrepreneurship in today’s climate.
