Donut Thought of the Day, Inspiration for Entreprenuers

The Friday Nut

I have a great day job, even though it has nothing to do with Donuts. Each and every day our CEO sends out an inspirational nugget called the "Thought of The Day", which I and several of my colleagues always look forward to. Toady's little nugget of wisdom was the following from none other than Charles Schwab:

“Everyone’s  got it in him, if he’ll only make up his mind and stick at it. None of us is born with a stop-valve on his powers or with a set limit to his capacities. There’s no limit possible to the expansion of each one of us.”—Charles Schwab

This is not the discount brokerage house, but rather the steel mill stake driver turned steel magnate. His quote, and fascinating rise from rags to riches, though not involved with donuts, makes me think of the many mom and pop shops we highlight on the The Donut Directory. The medium is different but the story, drive and dedication is the same. It's about individuals pushing their capacity, going beyond their limits and following a dream to makes their lives and our country better. 

With that in mind, I'd like to highlight one such entrepreneur  in the Donut world; Nancy Miller, the Mini-Donut Queen of Dallas, TX.  From AGbeat and The inspirational tale of an exploding mini-donut empire. This is the story of a stay at home mom, know more for jellies and jams than making donuts. She had no intention of starting an empire, but with a few business classes, some support from a local SCORE chapter some creativity and hard work, she is quickly becoming the Mini-Donut Queen of Dallas, TX. Nancy is a prime example of American ingenuity at its best. She proves that it doesn't take much money, but a little with the desire to work and learn anything is possible.

So take a chance on your dreams and support those who do, they might be making your next donut!
