I started my own business because I was topped out in my area of expertise AND not pursuing my passion. I realized that the things I did as a volunteer in my spare time could be turned into a business. I teach dance and cheerleading to kids. Not the typical business- but its working and I LOVE IT!

That was 15 years ago and I have never regretted one minute of it.
