I was about to give up on my dream to open my own bakery when I started Thomas Haas class. It was like someone gave me a slap in the face. He said, “You love what you do, and you are good at it. What’s next?” And that’s when I realized, I know what’s next for me! I now have my motivation back and all the steps I should take are right there! World, hold on!
