My late husband, Ken, liked to quote Dolly Parton’s saying that “you have to have a dream”. Ken’s dream was owning his own printing company and he started that dream in our garage in 1981, 35 years ago. My vision was more of a plan that included raising our children, educating our children and then joining Ken in the business. I did that in 1990 when I left my job as Vice President of Toyota of Knoxville. I have never regretted my decision because it gave us the opportunity to work together for many years and to build the business together. I was 47 years old when I made the decision to join the Burns Mailing & Printing team. Some dreams and plans take longer than others.
