Season 2 Episode 13 I'm sure you're thinking "It must be nice to be co-founder of Bossy ROC and owner of three businesses." But in this episode, you'll learn how Kelly Bush went from dreaming of a life of fame in the arts to running a bar; and how her ability to improv got her through tumultuous life events; both physically and emotionally.
Kelly Bush never thought she would become a business owner, as she was sure she was going to be a performer. After watching the movie Dirty Dancing, Kelly was inspired to write a script for a new version of the movie with her as the lead.
She eventually went into business with her husband Don when they bought Marshall Street Bar and Grill. She also has a consulting business that helped other women navigate the pandemic.
As a childless wife and woman business owner, Kelly has experienced the challenge of being in spaces dominated by mompreneurs, but she has learned to fill her space with different things.
"If anyone out there is a business owner and not a mother, a woman business owner, it's something I've struggled with before because I felt like there was like two years where every bossy happy hour, like half of the time spent was talking about what it's like to manage your home with your children and your business. And I would just sit there and get smaller and smaller and like, I can't contribute here."
