“Taking a time in a recession that could have been extremely tragic and devastating and it was still difficult. Taking four kids out on tour was not easy, but it took a business plan and that same mindset that the same little girl that put together a business plan, created shows in the backyard and charged the neighbor kids, and said there’s a business in this. I did that again in my thirty s and it worked. And I’m so proud of that.” -Amy Scruggs
