Even as a young girl, I loved bringing a business to life and watch it grow. Other girls wanted to babysit, while I worked out the percentage I could charge for getting them jobs and managing them. A lemonade stand was not a “fun” way to waste a summer afternoon, it was a very serious business involving customer acquisition and profit margins. I was born an entrepreneur, and I believe you are either born that way or you’re not. I see an opportunity, and I have no other choice but to create the business capitalize on that opportunity.
