How has your community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
My community is motivational, supportive, reliable (always there), caring and light hearted (believe me you need this when things get tough!) my family is involved in the business day to day, which makes it easier and more enjoyable:) Getting to where I am now took discipline, determination, sacrifice (you have to be willing to give up a lot), and passion!
