The Magic Cookery & Naples Drizzle

"Being an entrepreneur is worth the work. It’s different working for someone else. I can control things. We make the decisions; we are in a position of strength. We are the ones making the decisions bad or good and we can live with it. What we bring to the community young and old is an opportunity to give them possibility…there is no such thing as success, life is a journey. You may not know that you’re helping someone else when you are. I thought I was giving someone a service, but it turns out they help you and you help them, it’s reciprocal."
