693 words - 3 pages

I had a wonderful interview with the Owner of Café 247. Her name is Shirley Altheide. Wonderful person and absolutely delightful to talk with.
We started off our little meeting if you will with a question of vision. I had asked her what it was when she had first started and what it was now, and was amazed to see the rather large difference from then to now.

She responded, that as she looked back on her bumps in the road that that was all they were, just bumps and that the important thing was to learn from them. How one chooses to interpret failures will either move your forward or hold you back in some way. Every failure can be turned into a stepping stone towards success. Every...
