     After graduating  from high school , Janet took a few accounting colleges and  began helping  her dad with  the company books.  Macy could not afford to pay his daughter as they were tight on cash in the formative years .

For the next 36 years Janet  was the driving force of the company.  She scaled the business from $1  million  to  $ 40 million and then sold it  in 2018  for millions. Janet shares her entrepreneurial journey,  her best practices  and  her plan to keep the legacy of her dad & mom, Macy & Helen Dabek alive today.
