I grew up in Hawaii, and I went to public schools. I am the oldest of 5 children. We never had a lot of money, but my father was an entrepreneur. He was always finding ways to make money out of thin air: we recycled long before it was fashionable. He bought and sold goods from government surplus sales. Before we moved to Hawaii, he had owned his own Photography Studio. I learned to do similarly. In 6th grade, I started my own business–developing and printing film for my classmates. I didn’t make much money, but I always had a little in my pocket. For over 34 years now, my husband and I have owned our own businesses–occasionally resorting to working for others when business was slow. We have a construction business. We believe Business Ownership is part of the American Dream, and we want to help as many people as possible to achieve it.
As for me, I love reading about people who have made a difference in the lives of others. I love to spend time with my grandson–even when it’s on the phone. I like networking online. I enjoy browsing in thrift shops, at swap meets (you never know what treasure you might uncover), and in office supply and storage solution stores…and in old graveyards (hey! it’s great history). Mostly, I like to help people get out of the Rat Race and onto the Wealth Path.
