  • Love inspiration came at 18 when I met the man who would one day be my husband.
  • Business inspiration came in college around 19. I couldn't get into a class I needed for nursing and for some reason I took an accounting class. I sat in the accounting class and a light bulb went off. (I am now a CPA)
  • Artistic inspiration came in my late 40's. Yep it took a long time. I created my first digital scrapbook page and I was definitely inspired.
I guess we are inspired by different things at different times in our life. I wonder what my next inspiration will be???

What a neat way to answer this question! I did the same one at DSP!

Hey Canay, does your early ambition to be a nurse make you an accountant who can do a mean hospital corner?
