009 – People are Attracted to Happy with Eileen Cyrus of Just Because IYQ Tea Room

Eileen CyrusEileen Cyrus is a Vietnam Veteran having spent 12 years in the US Air Force. Once she retired from Civil Service she spent 10 years working several small jobs while also caring for her mother and father-in-law. She opened a gift boutique thinking that would fulfill her passion for a business of her own, but it didn’t totally satisfy her. Now – at last – she has found and followed her dream. Just over a year ago she opened Just Because IYQ Tea Room and Gifts in the Myrtle Beach area. Eileen enjoys reading, fishing, and playing with her grandchildren. She also loves to cook and try new recipes. No surprise there!
