blackjack to budding entrepreneur & beyond

The last ten years have been an amazing ride while staying home with my 2 boys, 3 dogs and 1 husband.  Holding a Master of Social Work definitely eased the pain and aided the situation often.  As my oldest son approaches double digits, small little thoughts start to sneak into my head….What will I do when the boys have their own teenage lives? Will I have any other accomplishments? Did I really want to go back to social work or am I more creative? I have this teeny, tiny creative idea, but not really sure how to execute. And, then something happened in Vegas.

Surely – you are bewildered. Let me explain.  I went on an adult getaway to Las Vegas, and decided to try my luck at some outdoor gaming.  As usual, the people around the table became fast friends, and I was excitedly retelling the story of seeing Steve Wynn and Tony Robbins the night before.  The guy to my right did not know who either of those people were.  The guy to my left was from Michigan and told me he ran a web site, StartupNation.com.  I dismissed the information and played my hand.

Later, StartupNation piqued my curiosity.  Turns out, StartupNation was just what I needed to light the fire.

This is my adventure. After 10 years of domestic goddess duties, volunteering, & consulting for free – can I make a comeback?  Can I get my concept off the ground? Who will help? Who will support? All that remains to be seen.
