CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)— The crowd in attendance for day two of She 2011, an expo for women, witnessed a rare public appearance by a domestic icon!

Martha Stewart, an entrepreneur and best-selling author among many things, shared stories of what fueled her journey of success. Stewart cited her mother, "Big Martha", as one of her most important influences and how she "lived a good life", which Martha now strives to do.

Stewart's career began with a series of cookbooks throughout the 1980s. She went on to create the magazine, Martha Stewart Living. The publication would later serve as a platform for a television show and will soon celebrate its 20th anniversary. Stewart founded Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, putting her name on home interior products sold in stores across the nation.

With her 70th birthday around the corner, the domestic diva admits she's not one to relax. Stewart said other projects are in the works and said she hopes to be as busy in five years as she is today.

Before arriving to the expo, Stewart made a pit stop at the Chattanooga Market where she purchased peaches and corn. She said she might use the peaches to make a cobbler.

This is the final day of the third annual She expo. The event is scheduled to end its star-studded weekend at 5:45 pm.
