Today we have two very successful entrepreneurs as guests. One who made gallons of lemonade out of lemons the other a high level executive who left corporate to follow her dreams. Our first guest is Jodi Pliszka, who started losing her hair at the age of 13. Overcoming this obstacle, she ended up inventing Headline It and winning ABC's American Inventor and has since been featured in Entrepreneur Magazine, Forbes and seen on dozens of shows such as Montel Williams. Our second guest is Kelsey Humphreys who left her dream job in graphic design and started her own business. Today she helps aspiring entrepreneurs launch a solo business they will love. Both women will tell us how they tackled the challenges of starting their own business and the keys to their success.
