Hi! My name is Joy.

I am embarking on a grand graduate school adventure, studying Entrepreneurship at Western Carolina University. My hope for this adventure is that I will emerge from the program with the tools I need to open an art studio. This blog has been set up to respond to assignments, interact with my university peers, and learn about building a blog. So, in essence, if you are reading this, then you are witnessing some of the highlights of my educational adventure!

I am 39 years old, married to my favorite man on earth, and raising two delightful little humans. I have been a massage therapist for nine years and an artist for as long as I can remember. Building an idea for a business from scratch is possibly one of the most creative experiences I will ever have. No doubt it will be worthwhile!
