What is a celebrity CEO?

Ramon says that small business owners have the ability to go very narrow and serve a niche market. Few of us are going to be Oprah Winfrey or LeBron James.

It’s never too early to start thinking about how to fund your passion. We are going to share three ways to do it!

Last time, we continued our conversation about Hollywood’s dirty little secret. We discussed what to do if you can’t do what you love.
