Who do you think would most appreciate this book?

Anyone who wants to start their own business

Do you remember a particular moment when you realized the value of your grandma’s wisdom? Or was it something you knew all along?

It was not until I was an adult and I started to see the amount of drive and determination it takes to own and operate my own business that I truly appreciate everything my grandma accomplished and talk me through her actions.

Can you give us an example of one of your grandma’s many principles that guided her?

My grandmother believed in comparison shopping.  She would check with no less than three suppliers and she asked each of them to give their best quote and she let them know she was shopping the market.

What do you think inspired your grandma to be so dedicated to reaching her goals?

Necessity.  My grandmother knew she needed to have more money coming into the house she rather than go out an get another job she learned that she could create and produce a product (magazines and how-to books) and mas produce them in order to leverage her time.  This is something women did not do in the  1970s and this was all pre Internet.

What do you hope readers will get from reading your book?

If they have an unwavering desire to run their own business I will show them the fundamentals she applied to get that business up and running.

Is there anything else you'd like potential readers to know about your book?

This book is a celebration of the life of Alles Hutchinson.  When you create something it lives even beyond you.  Her book are still available on Amazon today even though she has been gone almost 20 years.  A job will not get you that.  Don’t settle for less than what you are capable of doing.
