Eight years ago this month, Carol Noonan took a leap and starter her dream business -- a musical venue in Brownfield called Stone Mountain Arts Center.
It has turned into a remarkable success story, even though she could not have picked a more unlikely location, way out on a winding road in the hills of Brownfield (South of Fryeburg, if you're looking for a landmark).
The advice generally given to anyone thinking about starting a business is: Have a business plan and run it by tough-minded experts who know something about the kind of business you want to start.
In creating Stone Mountain Arts Center, Carol Noonan ignored every bit of that advice.
