I have always wanted to own my own business. When I was a young girl I went to my grandma’s every summer. My sister, 2 cousins and I started a business. We would clean our grandmas house for money. We had a lemonade stand. I remember her taking us to the 99 cents store to get supplies. We made business cards with all of our names. We also made a business plan with what we do, what our roles were and what we planned on doing with the money. (I really need to look this business plan up for all of you).
I had a calling for business at a very young age. I decided to start this business a couple years ago. It took me a long time to feel fully confident in my abilities. I was extremely afraid of failure and judgement. I put it all on hold for too long.
In March of 2019, at the age of 30, my mom passed away. It totally shocked me to the core. I began to think of all the things I haven’t accomplished and all the things she couldn’t see me do. It hurt me for awhile. I lost my focus on a lot of things in life. Day by day, though, I was able to get myself out of my funk and optimistic again.
I started this year with a plan. I decided to not wait anymore and just launched my blog. It will take awhile to get it moving and to have a decent amount of posts on it anymore. I don’t mind that because I am really enjoying the process finally. I have my etsy shop still and am making bigger plans for that as well. I love the motivation I have had and want to keep it going.
Yay for 2020 being the best year yet!
