How a young girl with no education formed her own business into a 22 million dollar enterprise and learned many lessons along the way. She shares"If I can do this, you can too."
The first step is always the hardest, except for that second step. The third step isn’t much easier. Pretty soon though you learn to run, and then you fall down because you ran too fast. You can pretty much count on getting hurt by running or falling down sometimes. The chances are that you will bump into other people along the way. They might skin their knee too when you unintentionally knock them off balance.
Don’t lose your honest self in the process of ownership. No matter how hard life gets, or how short you are on time, take precious seconds to be kind even when you are taking a firm stance.
Set boundaries and live within them. Make sure others know where the in-field is. Set new boundaries as you grow.
Remember that if a little girl with no formal education can succeed, then you can too.
Put your helmet on, buckle your seatbelt, and get your business going.

When we started our business 35 years ago, we succeeded mainly because we knew that directions are hard to follow when real life gets in the way.
One must follow business principles; however, what do you do when the problem you have isn't explained in the business book you read?
The webinars, the motivational speakers, and coaches have you pumped up ready to be a success; ahhhh, but then you go back to work, and the front line battles have you forgetting what you learned.
This is why I wrote this book. Real-life has a way of upending every business principle, you know.
We live in a relational world where people and problems can upset the entrepreneur, starting and managing their new business.
I invite you to laugh and learn through the stories I share to own and operate your own business
Buckle Up for Business Success
Most business books instruct readers on the basic concepts of what you should or shouldn’t do to be successful. Real life often throws a monkey wrench into the perfect instructions that you were trying to follow.
