Martha Stewart opens up about prison: ‘that was a terrible time’

Martha on how curiosity led to the foundation of her business
“I’m curious about everything… I’m always looking for new things, new ways to do things — that’s my business.

“I was one of six kids and two working parents… We were taught to work, we were encouraged to pay our own way, and we all did.”

Martha on the “ups and downs of her career” and how she “overcame” the low points:
“My biggest break really was starting a fine company with a fine staff and a fine bunch of colleagues. That, to me, really meant the most.”

“Having serious personal problems like my marriage dissolving and the horrible legal problem I had, where I had to go to jail for five months — that was a terrible time.”

“It’s all about what you are and who you are. And I never lost my customers because my customers believed in me. That gave me the wherewithal to just continue along my happy path.”

@marthastewart48's Lily Pond retreat in East Hampton, New York, which she purchased in 1990, "was a revelation," she says. "Everything grew so easily! It was such a joy to garden there." Amazed at the way plants flourished in the rich, silty loam and mild coastal climate, she filled her yard with a riot of roses, including heirlooms, climbers, and English varieties. Twenty-five years later, she transplanted them to Bedford, giving her grandchildren a thorn-free space in which to play outside the house, and making room for trees like Stewartia and Parrotia, known for their mottled, exfoliating bark, and Japanese maples.
