FAMILY OF ENTREPRENEURS: Everyone in this St. Anthony family gets a say in how to run Yellowstone Gem World
In St. Anthony, there is a family shop that holds more than rocks. There, a customer can visit a chiropractor, a massage therapist and look at obsidian knives, crystals from around the world, fossils and Tibetan jewelry. And if you don’t want to go in person, you can visit their website.
Maria Price was a single mother of three for five years when she met her husband, and they married in 2005. He’s a chiropractor, and she’s a massage therapist. Their business is called Yellowstone Gem World, and it’s located on Bridge Street in St. Anthony.
Maria Price said they homeschool their four children and decided to allow them to each have a part of the business. They make their own business decisions and deals, and although they’ve made mistakes in the past, it’s helped them grow. The mother said that allowing her children to take care of their own business endeavors has allowed them to gain important life skills and meet people from all around the world.
