Before meeting Auntie Gigi, I had a life-long dream of opening a daycare facility. As destiny would have it, I crossed paths with Ms. Gigi and to my surprise, she agreed to mentor me in the business. After a few months of being mentored by Gigi, my dream came true. Today, my wife and I are the owners of a successful multi-cultural, state of the art child care facility near Chicago's Ohare Airport. My wife was able to leave her job as an elementary school teacher to launch our own preschool center. Gigi’s support and guidance has been a blessing in making my dream come to pass!
