Dorothy retired in 2 1/2 minutes after 2 1/2 decades in banking.
“I worked in banking for over 25 years. One day my boss called me into his office and said, ‘Your job is going to another state. You can move or you can take early retirement.’ It scared me to death, but I took the package.”
In a leap of faith, she turned her artwork into a successful business.
"I decided to follow my passion, which is art. I made greeting cards out of drawings that I’d done and started selling them to local merchants. I had no experience in marketing, and there were missteps in the early days. But today, my cards are sold all over the U.S. and in Canada.
“At the bank, they put me through a lot of training. I was eager to learn and I now use many of the financial skills they taught me. I don’t see myself ever retiring. I have too much energy, too many ideas, and too many things I want to accomplish.”
