There’s a lot of buzz nowadays about the Law of Attraction and the power of positive thinking. Apparently, a person has only to set his or her sights on a goal, visualize it and — presto! — it materializes.
Whether or not you’re a fan of this way of thinking, it’s hard to argue with the power of self-determination evidenced by three enterprising Fairfield County women who set out to test their luck as entrepreneurs and succeeded.
Their career choices are poles apart: One is a design/marketing guru who helped start a thriving agency; the second walked away from years in corporate life to find success as a home-organizing specialist; the third is an artist turned author and motivational speaker. Yet, despite these differences, there is a similarity. Each of these entrepreneurial dynamos has branched out on her own, creating a unique company that satisfies multiple personal needs, provides increased financial freedom and gives her more time for family and outside pursuits.
