Introduction I have been a mom since February 2000 and an entrepreneur since August 2000. Eight weeks after I returned from maternity leave, the company where I had been employed for five years went out of business. I decided to try doing my own thing and failed miserably. After another year of working for two different companies (the first laid off the department I worked in and the other was showing signs of going under), I decided to try entrepreneurship again. Raising my two children and growing my company, Bisson Barcelona, has been both challenging and rewarding. My story has been told in dozens of publications, including the Associated Press, National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB.com), Women’s Business Boston Journal, Plan Ahead Get Ahead (cover story), Union Leader, The Portsmouth Herald, Our Times and Seacoast Ventures.
