Mary Ann Parker has been running a business from her couch since before it was cool! In fact, she’s done it through many ups and downs: financial struggles after losing a job, her divorce, the pandemic. But Mary Ann is nothing if not determined, and her IT consulting business has weathered all those storms and then some. Today, she loves being self-employed and encouraging others to go after their couch-based business dreams. When she’s not working (or sleeping), you can find her rooting for her beloved Chicago Cubs.
