How and why did you start your business?

How do you define SUCCESS?
Realizing that my book is helping kids through adversity and they love themselves more. Getting emails from people who read the story Randy Kazandy and how it changed their lives.
If there was one thing you wish you knew before you began, what would that be?
To Pay a coach that knows the business inside and out. It saves so many hours and keeps you from the wrong businesses on the internet who pry on beginners.
What makes you an innovative woman?
I did it on my own. Sold 10,000 books and have branded my character. I have done TV Shows, won awards and had dinner with former first lady Laura Bush. Who is a fan of Randy Kazandy!
