My Mother's Legacy Lives On
My role model has always been my mother. She was a survivor of life. She survived genocide in Yugoslavia at the beginning of WWII, hid from Nazis in the frozen forests, was orphaned, sent off to a state run school, and lost her childhood.
I learned life’s most important lessons from her, and my goal is pass them on to my girls.
Ever since I can remember, I saw my mother working hard to keep a clean and safe home. Preparing meals, watching our savings, protecting us. And my mother always found work to help support us. She began a house cleaning business, a gold jewelry home business, whatever she could do, she did. My Mother taught me entrepreneurship from childhood and she also taught a love of work. She taught me how to stay strong and persevere; that was one of her greatest gifts.
