Marie Fleming's story

I dreamt of something much larger than myself. I was from a family of modest workers growing up in the central valley of California. Growing up we had no expectations placed on us, just to survive, while the family was always away working at times two jobs. Since I did see my parents struggle with finances I felt I wanted to help people do more at a young age. When in high school my economics teacher had us start our first business and from that day on I knew the path of entrepreneurship would be one that I wanted to strive for. As a single mother and entrepreneur having a flexible work schedule was important to me and I knew this would be the only way I could have the freedom I wanted. Although college-educated, cooperate America has high demands for your schedule and not much room for the family. There is nothing more important than to have the flexibility to be there for people I love.
