Safety Harbor, Florida
Dori Ball began her career in television as an on air show host for HSN in Florida, and then traveled north to Minnesota for a stint on CVN. Leaving the world of television, Dori found herself in Alabama at a Classic Rock station co-hosting the morning show and spinning the news. Heading back to Florida, Dori dove into advertising working for Val-Pak and then with Media Impact Advertising before heading east to enjoy a few rounds at the PGA TOUR.
Always an advocate for all things natural, in 2002 her passion for organics, became a major focus in her life when her mother was diagnosed with cancer. Creative Mixtress that she is, Dori began formulating natural products for herself, family and friends. Her hobby soon became a full time business and her company, Earth Elixirs was born – a bath and beauty company committed to handcrafting wholesome alternatives to the artificial and chemically based products that riddle today’s society.
As President and Founder of Earth Elixirs, Dori served on the board of the Natural Ingredient Resource Center, a site that educates and promotes natural goodness, while her business blossomed from cold processed soaps and natural skin care to the release of her pure mineral cosmetics line.
As we are all apt to do from time to time, Dori allowed life to get in the way of living, to get in the way of her passion. With the passing of her mother, a failing relationship and working too many hours for someone else’s dream, Dori sadly closed the door on Earth Elixirs.
Over the years, Dori would find a faint flicker of her past passion, hold it fleetingly and lose it again; trying to pay bills and spending too many hours working for someone else.
Fast forward to 2014 where Dori is more determined than ever to let The Creative Mixtress out of the proverbial closet and to rejoice in her new found passion.
She is currently launching DiVA Office Solutions which helps busy solopreneurs build their Bodacious Brand with social media management, website design and the creation of their signature systems.
Along with the new business, Dori is also developing a line of ebooks to help fellow Mixtresses and DiVAs find their passion and learn how to ‘Mix Business with Pleasure’.
An animal lover, Dori has volunteered at Animals at Heart Rescue in Jacksonville, Florida and the Humane Society of the United States, personally making a difference for four-legged victims of natural
