“New York: Where Entrepreneurs Can Still Call Home”

“One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years.” ~ Tom Wolfe

There were three careers I dreamt of as a teenager; a talent scout for Sony Records, a successful artist and a New York columnist. Today, one of my dreams came true.

Throughout my years of living in New York I always worked for someone else. The thought of branching out on my own was a fantasy until I moved to Florida where I met my husband Randy, a fellow New Yorker.

He taught me about the true meaning of financial freedom, and how entrepreneurship has no limits. I began to reminisce about the local business owners I grew up with in New York who tried their very best to stay in business, despite the financial hardship they faced.

When I was approached to be a contributor for the December issue of Times Square Magazine I proposed the topic about New York business owners. I took some time to research their successes (and downfalls) of entrepreneurs over the years, and despite the many setbacks they have endured, there is still a light of resilience that shines on this great city.
