AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF)– Meet a local woman who is using her vast experience to become her own boss.

Tonia Gibbons drew on years of experience working in different arenas to become an entrepreneur.

I’ve said many times that I made a major career change at age 30, because the fear of “what if?” was far greater than the fear of failure. The idea of waking up one day, later in life, and wondering “what if” I had given TV news a shot… far outweighed the possibility of failing at it.

Gibbons knows exactly what I’m talking about. She’s an entrepreneur who experienced that same “what if?” in her life… and she decided failure wasn’t as scary as not trying at all.
