In the article by Florida Trend Magazine (Linda Daniel Lights Up a New Career), Linda shares the journey from risk to success. Linda had no previous experience in starting a small business. Yet, she knew in her heart that designing lamp shades was what she was meant to do.
In her own words:
“I’d never made a lampshade, never even glued trim on one, but I loved them and I knew this was what I was meant to do.”
Linda went on to train with an expert lampshade artist before opening her own custom lamp shade studio in Sarasota, Florida — which has been growing and thriving ever since.
Ultimately, Linda’s success story is a testament to following your heart. As noted in the article by Florida Trend Magazine: if you’re considering opening a small business, doing what you love may “be the only rule you really need to follow.”
