Making Progress

There are definitely days that test my strength and my persistance. For some reason today was a day like that. Perhaps it's the pressure of a looming deadline for payroll ($2K by May 30th) or maybe it's just the stress of having been on the road for the better part of the last month.

It's nice to work from anywhere but it can also be a test of patience. Have you ever tried to write an email with two teenagers fighting next to you? Or with toddlers underfoot?

As always, there are pluses and minuses to every situation and there are definite drawbacks to only spending 6 days in my own home. I miss my dog! I miss my bed! I miss having quality quiet time with myself.

So I am a bit stressed. This is the first real test I've put myself under as a business owner. The world won't stop turning if this doesn't happen but I would strongly prefer we reach our goal!

I battled through the doubt, anxiety and fear today along with herding my apprentices.

On the plus side, I made two sales! Yipee!!! I did a little happy dance. It's a nice pre-birthday gift for me. :) Tomorrow's the big day, my birthday. It would be so fun if my sales would double or triple tomorrow! :) A girl's gotta dream.

So stay tuned and see what happens in the next 26 hours. I'm excited!

Til then,
