I started my career as a serial entrepreneur in 4th grade with my best friend Mary Elliott. Mary and I saw the “need” for fashion in the ranks of the Girl Scout troop, and we responded with our macramé bead bracelet business.
I can still remember the joy of $40 of revenue that we split $20/$20. Oh yes, that was the start of the “bug” that is the life of an entrepreneur: creation, innovation, risk, dedication, energy and hopefully the rewards not only of profits but of making a difference in the world for ourselves and others.
Fast forward to today. I write from the perspective of 37 years in my own business, speaking in 20 countries, publishing books, creating Art on Purpose with products, donating over $1 million to charities around the world with my 5000+ CampExperience™ Network, producing over 2000 special events, a Radio Show and now Podcast Network. A lot has changed and a lot has stayed the same.
