Being raised as the daughter of determined immigrant parents, who owned small businesses throughout my life,

I was gifted an unfiltered view into the unpredictable odyssey of entrepreneurship – its soaring joys and heartrending setbacks, its moments of victory and the struggles that define it.


Witnessing my family's enduring journey as business owners for 26 years not only carved the contours of my identity but also etched into me the profound understanding that concealed within every small business owner is an exceptional narrative, one that crafts them as intricate humans, leaves a mark on their families, and cements the foundations of a community.


These realizations ignited a desire in me to share the stories of those who’ve walked similar paths.
