An Australian newspaper recently published a story on a severely dyslexic woman who dropped out of school at the age of 16 due to her literacy difficulties.

Daniela Boutros left academia behind in favor of the cupcake business.


She persevered through several business models before finding the one that has made her a successful entrepreneur.

“I honestly believe having dyslexia was the best thing that could have happened to me,” she said. “It gave me tenfold the motivation.”
