From waiting tables to volunteering to promoting books to creating the business that mirrored her values, used her best talents - and is profitable - read how Lisa turned her jobs into stepping stones to this place in her life.

"This year has brought two great things. One, just as we were ready to expand our program, Clorox came to us and said (they) would really like to do a program where we can stop the spread of cold and flu among families. Thus the birth of the "What To Expect Guide To A Healthy Home" funded by Clorox. Again we've helped moms learn about something important, and then we took the fees and donation from Clorox ($1 million) and can use it just in time to expand our program.
"Also, we've just partnered with Glaxo Smith Kline to do a What To Expect Immunization program. Again Heidi has donated her time, and we'll receive $1 million - and will expand the program into baby's first year of life."
