Before Michelle Myers became an entrepreneur, she weathered a number of personal and financial crises. But starting and growing her two back-office services companies, My Virtual Paige and Pink Callers, provided renewed stability, and paved the way to the love of her life.

Today, Myers says she has a “Brady Bunch style family — kids from here, there and everywhere.” It’s a second marriage for her and her husband, Doug — she divorced, and he lost his first wife in a car accident. She brought two children to their union and adopted Doug’s daughter.

Entrepreneurship, she says, has provided financial security and time to devote to her husband and their children. “To have the freedom to support melding a family together, to meet those needs, was crucial. I’m really grateful.”
