Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There is always competition! My husband was always frustrated with the hours I work! His friends would suggest I work in venues that would not fit my interests or abilities. Now he is more supportive!
