About this week's Guest, Angela DiMaggio of MobileGro:

Angela DiMaggio is a retired school teacher currently residing in Arizona. Originally from Wisconsin (a self proclaimed cheesehead), Angela drew up a mock design of the MobileGro some years ago while at her teacher's desk, put it in the drawer and forgot all about it.

On the day she was cleaning out her desk, as she was ready to head into the sunset for retirement, the scribbled drawing of what would be become the MobileGro had fallen into her lap.

With that drawing and a passion for gardening, what was supposed to be retirement, slowing down and enjoying life, turned into a successful business with a gardening product that is not only practical, but as she quickly came to find out, useful to customers with special needs.
