Several times each summer, your family takes a day trip to one of Maine's amazing coastal towns. You spend the day walking up and down the small, often windy, streets exploring the cool shops.

Every time you do this, you and your significant other talk about how it would be great if you gave up the life you have in order to live out your dreams of running a tourist-centric business in one of these towns.

But, it is just a dream.  You never really act on it.

What if this time was different?  What if, this time, you found a potential business opportunity, put together a business plan, and went to the bank?

Of course, it would have to be the right opportunity before you started investing your time in the project.  Well, this could be that opportunity.
