20 years ago I decided I wanted to become an entrepreneur so I left a secure job in retail merchandising and founded 'The Natural Dentist' oral care brand. I was so glad that I did. Being a successful entrepreneur is a great accomplishment and leads to very positive feelings about oneself. So I've decided to use my experience and skills to help others navigate to entrepreneurship.
