“As the founder of JJ Avenue Productions, I have always held an entrepreneurial and self-starting spirit, and had been involved previously in other ventures. I started my own venture to solely offer my creative services to others, in ways that I could not when working with other entities,” Miller said. “I now have the freedom to make business and creative decisions the way I see fit. On a personal level, as a divorced parent, owning my own business offers me additional flexibility.”
