What is your purpose in life? Many people have jobs they don’t enjoy and are simply doing it for a paycheck. Others have dreams and aspirations they don’t follow because they think they are too old or don’t have the time. This week’s Entrepreneur of the Week is defying the so-called odds by following her dreams.
Avery Dey has a great job making great money. She has a loving husband and children. The one thing she enjoys more than anything is music. She attends many concerts from the Capital Jazz Festival, The Hoodie Awards (now called the Neighborhood Awards), to countless other music cruise getaways, Avery has always been around music. It wasn’t until recently that her husband, Derrick Steward, along with friends in the entertainment business, suggested she start a blog to chronicle her journey attending these shows and behind the scenes looks she gets at a lot of them.
According to Avery,” I had no idea if I could or if anyone would take me seriously. With the support from family and friends, I took the plunge, and I am loving every minute of it.”
Just by taking the chance doing something she loves, her dream has now become reality, as she has had the chance to be around the likes of a Phil Perry, Eric Roberson, Candy Dulfer, Sheila E., New Edition, Douye’ and others.
She says it’s not about the money, but about doing something she is passionate about!
