ABSTRACT
The author narrates how her simple idea ended up to the launching of her million-dollar business. Her entrepreneurial journey began when her husband lost his job. They needed income fast, but she did not want to give up being a stay-at-home mother. Thinking of flee-filled socks that people heat up for relaxation and pain relief, she took some old scraps of fabric and sewed a pillowcase then filled it with corn. Her idea turned out to be a good product and a million-dollar business.
