Millennial entrepreneurs and those looking to become one.... this podcast is for you!
An entrepreneur is an individual who creates a new business, bearing most of the risks and enjoying most of the rewards. The road to entrepreneurship is often a treacherous one filled with unexpected detours, roadblocks and dead ends, lots of sleepless nights, plans that don't work out, funding that doesn't come through, and customers that never materialize. BUT the rewards can be greater than any corporate job, as well as the flexibility to be your own boss!

The entrepreneur is commonly seen as an innovator, a source of new ideas, goods, services, and business/or procedures. Despite the hardships, every year, thousands of entrepreneurs embark on this journey determined to bring their vision to fruition and fill a need they see in society, even in 2020 during a pandemic!

Mel was featured in the 2011 Central Penn Business Journal's Young Entrepreneur Article and this ACTUALLY did happen years later as many of your know with her shop in Linglestown. “My 3-5 year goal is to have a small shop where I will sell my retail cards and invitations, as well as many other unique and handmade items,” she said. “The shop also (will) have an open small studio in the back or a loft that I can meet with brides and clients and work on-site as well.”

Today, Billy and Mel are going to YELL about their own process of designing, launching, and running a new business, the ups and downs, what's happened along the way, and some tips!
