Sure, we want the money. We want the bragging rights to say we’re a founder and CEO of a business. We want the lifestyle a successful entrepreneur has.

So I thought I’d share why I started my business. I was recently married and wanted a family. So when the opportunity came to create Cherry Communications, I grabbed it.
