In 2011 I was laid off from my job. I had no money saved in the bank and instantly panicked. I thought to myself, how will I pay my bills? I started researching "Recession Proof Businesses." I saw "Bakery" listed and thought to myself, I can use my baking skills to survive. I ran to the Courthouse and obtained a DBA. And before you know it Rocky's Cupcakes was created. I opened a cupcake delivery service. I was able to pay my bills and do something that I was passionate about. The business brought me great success and I will always be grateful. I was able to overcome my financial obstacle.
