Sept. 10th, 2010
I haven't stopped writing because the project is off, or even that I haven't had time. I'm just in the middle of tedium and it's hard to think that anyone is going to be interested in blogging about cramming together costing sheets and printing off demographics studies of potential places to put our business. And that's what it's been.
You know how you get really excited about an idea or a project and you start on it and then your interests fades a little and you are having a hard time getting motivated when it comes down to the nuts and bolts of the thing? Yea I know that, but I'm not there. I was wanning a bit when it came down to the costing out of several of the things we want to be able to provide to our customers (I know I know this vagueness as got to be annoying as all hell, I promise soon we'll just come out with it, but currently I still feel vulerable to potential takers of my dream and a little tender), costing is a pain in the ass as my students will happily tell you, probably using a great many explatives, so yea I was putting it off. But I told Erin to encourage me and she said "COST MONKEY COST!!!" It was all I needed. I bolted through it in a couple of days and it was revealed to me that once again the hardest part is just getting started.
Anyway the point is that every Monday when I go to work, I have a renewed sense of HELL YEAH! And I am jazzed all over again to keep this business on a roll. Erin's mom let her know that there is going to be a Small Business Fair at the Oregon Convention Center this weekend and I got goosebumps all over. There are lectures we can take and people we can talk to and I'll about ready to wet myself with excitement that this is happening at one of the best times. I want to make sure we have as much of our business plan done as I can manage in one more day so that we (I mean me Erin can't be there in person, but I'll take good notes) can start talking to people at the SBA about our business.
That is why I sat down last night for a few minutes with the three hole punch and organized The Binder, making room for all of the really important stuff that I'm going to be adding today. My beautiful husband even started doodling some logos for us. Thanks sweetie.
So tomorrow I'll be spending the majority of the day sitting in rapt attention while a speaker tells me how to get money for our business. Wish us luck!!
