“Entrepreneurship is about making a living doing what you love; it’s about living life with passion and creating jobs for yourself and others. Entrepreneurship isn’t for everyone, but the skills that make people successful entrepreneurs are the same skills that will help you succeed in whatever you choose to do in life.”

Reid Mason says he spends a lot of time admiring his neighbors’ wood piles. He can’t help it.
“Everyone has wood envy around here,” Mason said with a smile. “You see somebody’s stack and you go ‘oh man, he’s ready for winter.’
“And then you see my stack and you say ‘oh, he’s got a ways to go.’ So wood envy is a big thing I see in this county. It’s really a funny thing. But we are into it.”Add a comment
