A page for my Book about Me. Hoping to inspire my nieces to always follow their dreams and let them know they can be whatever they want! I love being a homemaker and entrepreneur. Remember when we had full service gas stations?
Journaling: Back in 1982 we had full service gas with auto repair shops. It was still very much a "man's world" and not very many women were in this business. In order to be a Chevron franchisee you had to attend a training school. I was the only woman in the class. During one of the sessions the man sitting next to me leaned over and whispered in my ear "You're a real sweet girl but this business is no place for a woman. You should be home baking cookies". After that comment I was more than ever determined to make it. I was only 25 and wanted to quit many times. Fast forward 4 years and my location was number 2 in the southeast and he was out of business! That year I won an all expenses paid trip to London from Chevron.
So many ladies do an awesome job with the GP45 papers. I find them very hard to work with! Thanks so much for taking a peek!
