Amy and her husband David Butler built thier company Art of the Midwest which is a commercial design studio. They put in years of hardwork and what truly amazed me is that they did it without having to borrow money! They did not take a bank loan they simply started the company with what they had which was not much. However, i believe that patience and loving what you do is what makes you succeed.
Watch this video on msn about how they did it Who needs banks?
Different people have different ideas or concepts as to why someone should start a business. I personally dont think you should start a business if all you can think about is making profit, i dont argue the fact that it is a major factor and a good one at that. I just think that when you start a company you should do it cause you have found something you love to do and dont mind spending the rest of your life doing it.
