The Road Less Traveled

August 3rd, 2011

Sorry for my absence around here-  I have good reason, really I do.   Y’all know that I talked a while back about a cross-roads of sorts that I was at and that I’d been doing some research and trying to make some decisions.  Well, that day finally came.

It technically came a few weeks ago, but officially it came yesterday.   I started a business-  a cupcake business to be excact.    As you know- cupcakes are HUGE these days and since I love baking and enjoy making people happy with my little baked treats- I figure there would be nothing more fun and satisfying than to be able to share that love on a larger scale by selling them.

I’ve been learning the ins and outs of all that I need to do to get started- meeting with various agencies and such- and yesterday I officially became registered- got a Tax ID number and all that fun stuff.  Now all the hard work begins.

I still have a while before I’ll be officially up and running- since mom and dad are coming and I wanted to be able to spend some time with them and not worry about work- but while I plan fun things for us to do-I’ll also be working on a website- and hopefully coming up with some marketing ideas so that as soon as they leave- the site will be ready to go live and we’ll go from there.

I’m excited, and yet very nervous at the same time.   I don’t know where this road will take me- but I’m sure the journey is going to be a great one.  It was definitely a step outside of my comfort zone and I’m still adjusting- including a few minor meltdowns, but nothing I can’t handle.

I’ll keep you posted though- but it’s official- I’m a business owner.
