Al Qaeda operatives or maybe homicide bombers? Not exactly.  But the stories Ruth shares can be just as frightening as those.

They include such scenarios as:  “I Let My Greed Override My Common Sense;” “Bankruptcy Was Not an Option;” and “I Only Broke Down Twice.” 

The Ugly Truth About Small Business One of the stories is her own, and she is living proof that you can overcome the worst of situations, survive and thrive. Ruth’s talk is designed to give entrepreneurs comfort, hope, ideas, and the knowledge that they are not alone.
