If you like reading about people that have made their way in this world through a lot of hard work and a little creativity, then you might enjoy reading about Johnny Cupcakes.
I discovered Johnny Cupcakes back in '06 and just loved his story! I won't even try to describe what he does here, but I encourage you take a moment to read his story for yourself: http://shop.johnnycupcakes.com/story/
Johnny continues to take his 'bakery' to new levels and has recently opened a shop in LA. I only peek in on his site every few months, so when I saw webisodes on his blog explaining what he had planned for the new LA shop, I was very impressed!
You can view his final webisode #3 on his blog: http://www.johnnycupcakes.com/blog/ (scroll to entry date July 25, 2008)
Hope you enjoy his story as much as I do! =)
