How did you end up as the owner of toy stores?

When I was in high school my father’s colleagues wife owned a local toy store. She offered me a job and I continued through college. On school breaks I’d work there. When I graduated I was offered the management job at Toy Attic, and I was hesitant but after a not-so-fabulous experience in the industry I had hoped to work in, I asked the owner if she would ever be interested in selling. She agreed and I managed with the intent to buy. It worked about beautifully for everyone.
