If you opened your own business, what would it be? One idea would be to have a company called OCD- Organized Clean Design and I would be a life coach. I'd go into people's homes and help them get organized. Everything from de-cluttering to meal planning. I thrive off of organization and discipline. A second idea that I've always dreamed about is buying an old hotel and turning it into a shelter for women. There used to be an old hotel by an apartment I lived in and it was vacant. I would dream of what I could do with the space. There would already be laundry- each woman could have a private bathroom, there were conference rooms where we could provide classes, the possibilities are endless. It gets me fired up just typing this! I'd only need a few million dollars to get started. Who wants to help me?
