VENICE BEACH, Calif. — If her parents hadn't pushed her, Irene Neuwirth might still be teaching horseback riding instead of designing jewelry that sells for tens of thousands of dollars.
"All I ever wanted to do was ride horses," said the 32-year-old Neuwirth, who was once ranked fourth in the nation in her division. "But I was making like $9,000 a year and my dad said, 'Find something else that you love.' Now he jokes that I'm the breadwinner."

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
