Today, we sell a lot more than just cupcakes and deliver products across the country, but I will never forget how I first sold them under the desk in my classroom. We've come a long way since then, but we have a longer way to go.
To me, a small business used to mean that the person has not maximised his or her potential, that they could be so much more but they chose to remain small. This was my inexperienced childish brain, the one that was always infatuated by success stories on YourStory or Forbes.
The stories that my grandmother narrated were also that of adventure and courage, but they were true stories of herself and her business. I always imagine that if I had a symbol to represent her, it would be that of a lioness.
