"The ideal American woman doesn't just putter around in the kitchen or dabble in knitting. She opens a cake shop and knits scarves for fashion shows. She appears on Oprah. She follows her dreams."
A quick mental run-through brings me to conclude that I have always considered my own hobbies or skills as potential business situations,* even though I've never acted on these thoughts (it's really just a matter of time). Is this a result of my American upbringing? Is the entrepreneurial spirit born into every American?
*upon closer scrutiny, I think most of the entrepreneurial spirit comes from a desire to get out of the rat race, no? That would bring this little conversation full-circle. And now you know how my mind works. Lucky you! It gets pretty convoluted in there sometimes :)
