About three years ago, my family decided to attend a Family Economics conference in St. Louis. I really didn’t know what this “family economy” thing was about.
To add to my confusion, I left my contact lenses at home by accident, leaving me squinting at the stage most of the weekend. It took a while to adjust, but during that fuzzy weekend the idea of a family economy began to intrigue me. At the time, our family made a plan to start raising chickens on our small piece of land. That turned out to be just the beginning of my journey as an entrepreneur.
