I am the lowest paid worker in my biggest company just to cover my living expenses, I don’t need anything else, and I don’t take a salary from the other two so that we can keep investing and surviving challenges and preserving jobs. I get such a kick from seeing my employees moving on up and getting somewhere with their lives. It’s like we’re a big family and they’re all my children but not in a weird way lol! I’ve had the millionaire lifestyle, it brought me nothing but pain and a husband who spent it all on himself and other women, while I half killed myself keeping it all going. I like a simple life now. You make a choice when you run a business what to do with the profits.
