From Hartford Business Journal: In 2007, Brenda Simonelli was working 12-hour days as a senior corporate accountant with a Springfield, Mass. company.
The commute from her East Hartford home gobbled up another few hours.
Then one day, like a light-switch getting turned on, she was struck with an unshakeable desire to start her own business.
Simonelli followed her entrepreneurial spirit, quit her job and started a two-year journey that led to her purchase of a BounceU children's entertainment franchise that she opened in Rocky Hill last month.
