Hi! My name is Michelle Whalen Kaiser. I created this site to tell the stories of entrepreneurs and to inspire more people to create small businesses. And, I suppose, I created this site to really investigate if I should be a small business person.
A few years ago, I was on track to be a librarian. I was working at a library, learning how to answer any question, and having a lot of easy days. Well, life took me down another road. So, I am working a dissatisfying job and I felt I need to put something good into the world.
When I first decided to do this blog, I only decided I would do “the coolest thing I could think of”. Then, I had to decide what that meant. I decided I wanted to talk to the coolest people I could find. Then, I narrowed that down to scientists and entrepreneurs. I felt that entrepreneurs would be easier on a beginning blogger and they have been wonderful.
I’ve realized that this site also fulfills my desire to improve the heroes in our lives. It drives me nuts when people idolize actors, millionaires, and royalty. Sure, they might be nice, but I think we are missing better heroes in the guy that owns the pizza place, the artist that won’t quit, and the director that has to tell a good story.
So, welcome to my world, where the heroes are made of sterner stuff and I get to talk to the coolest people in the world.
