Susan Burns talks business on Wednesdays on ABC7 News at 5:30 p.m.We were inspired this month by Kathryn Kittinger, who is featured on our cover and in a story about great commercial spaces on page 18. Kittinger quit her high-paid sales and marketing job when she suddenly realized she could no longer work for just a paycheck. She recreated herself as a successful children’s photographer in California and then moved to Sarasota in 2005 and launched another career as the creator of Shoogie Boogies’ studio/gallery, garden café and gift shop. Happier and more fulfilled than she’s ever been, Kittinger is expanding her gift shop and also contemplating a Shoogie Boogies' bed and breakfast, day spa and an eCommerce site. She’s one of many entrepreneurs in this issue who are pursuing dreams close to their heart.
