It is good to know that we are not alone on our journey to independent success. There are many small business owners out there who put their heart and soul into creating an enterprise that makes money and puts food on the table. Whether you manage a site where you are promoting products or if you create the products yourself you are what makes America great. Keep doing what you are doing and everyone else, help support these businesses by shopping on their sites.
I have created this page on my website that gives these businesses a shout out and links to their work. Check each of them out and support their calling.

Sara Harris – Author

Seeing a small South Texas writer making it was an inspiration. She is an great person and an amazing writer. Click the link above and check out her work.
June Smith – Artist, Chair Suits® Home Furnishings Designer, Art Teacher
When I worked in the Insurance Industry i had the opportunity to work with June. She was a great agent and could sell ice cubes to a Penguin in Antarctica. In fact, I remember her colder weather aspirations; she wanted to live in Alaska. I am not sure if is still a dream of hers, maybe when she retires. She is now an Art teacher for a local charter school. When not in the classroom, June is an artist and Home Furnishings Designer. She is the creator of Chair Suits®. You can see, and purchase, her creations at the link above. You can also see her Art boards and witness her creativity an passion for working with children. I am always inspired when other artists I know succeed at their passion. To see a friend pursue their dreams gives me inspiration that I can accomplish what I set out to do.
