A dream can spark a business. It's amazing how this happens. Check out these two sisters who started their garden center when one had a dream of doing so.

Have dreams ever inspired your business direction?

Sisters' business grows from storm damage (http://www.postbulletin.com/newsmanager/templates/localnews_story.asp?z=31&a=291379) - After a storm damaged the roof of Cindy Smith's Kasson barn, her sister Becky Diekman had what she thought was a bizarre dream.

"You'll never guess the dream I had last night," Diekman told her sister. "We turned your barn into a garden center."

Fastfoward seven years and what seemed like a far-fetched idea has bloomed into the Perennial Barn ** a garden center boasting thousands of plants, shrubs, trees and perennials. These sisters are an example of the growing number of area women launching their own businesses.
