I can’t believe that it’s been a year since we made the big leap. It seems like yesterday that my husband Mike and I made a big decision that changed our lives forever. Without even hesitating we sold everything we owned. We packed up our laptops and our 2 little Italian Greyhounds and moved to an island in the middle of the ocean. Mike often jokes that we better do it while we were just young enough and dumb enough to do something so drastic. So there we were, starting over again without knowing anybody. Starting over without any of the places, people or things we were used to. Starting over as small business owners with no guarantees.
