Catherine Chetelat (“Cas”) has earned the right to be called a true Mother of Invention. Raising eight children in a cramped row home in Baltimore, Maryland, she constantly found herself relying on creativity to manage a household of six energetic boys, two lively girls, dogs, cats, rabbits, parakeets, snakes, and the occasional chameleon. One memorable summer, she embarked on her first entrepreneurial endeavor: a snowball stand. The stand was designed to provide income during the summer months and, more importantly, to keep the children occupied (out of trouble). While never really making a dime in profit, she managed to accomplish something of far greater value: the development of an entrepreneurial spirit in her children.
