“You cannot be a business owner and not be great at multi-tasking,” asserts Pavkovic Tovissi, who learned this after getting married, having a baby, selling her home and expanding her business—all in the same year. “My lawyer once asked why I was e-mailing him at three in the morning. He asked if I was just coming home from a bar,” she recalls. “I told him the only drinks I was shaking were milk bottles for my baby while juggling my keyboard.”
