If you’re a recent college grad, you probably know that the job market isn’t in the least what it was promised to be just a few years ago. Establishing an ideal career for many can be tough, overwhelming and seemingly undefined in terms of time.
For Brittany Rose, founder of More Than Cheer — a recreational sports management company — taking the chance of being whisked into the unemployment madness wasn’t an option.

“Personally I really enjoy helping people and working with youth. I wanted to create a lifestyle where I could have financial freedom and time to spend with my family — when I have one,” said Rose. “I found entrepreneurship was the only way that I could provide that for others and myself.”
