The title of this story may seem a little bit unusual, however, I’m going to attempt to explain why I call it this and my hope is that my story will inspire others to uncover and pursue their goals and dreams. I hesitated posting it publically because its personal nature, however, it is a story of transformation which can also be applied in any business or personal situation.
Before I start, I must confess, when I started to write this, I was unaware of Michael Masterson’s book entitled “The Reluctant Entrepreneur,” and only stumbled across it when I was conducting an internet search on a similar topic.

I am a two-time breast cancer survivor. I’m living proof that breast cancer is not always a death sentence. The first diagnosis was on September 11, 2001. There was no history of breast cancer in my family, but I faithfully had the yearly mammograms; which were always “fine;” until the last mammogram revealed a problem which later proved to be cancer.
