Turn Unemployment Into a Lifelong Dream

If you can dream it, you can do it. Kim Leslie is living proof.
Today, Leslie, 38, is the owner of Kokopelli Cafe, a business she opened in May on Woodland Square Loop that is surrounded by state office buildings and looks across Huntamer Park. Her fledgling cafe has two employees and business is off to a good start, she said.

Among her customers are at least 250 who return on a regular basis to use their punch cards for future discounts, Leslie said.

“I couldn’t be happier,”
she said Tuesday. “I enjoy getting up at 4:30 a.m., but I never used to.”
