Well, moving at the speed of light is no joke. You have all these ideas, well I do but then acting upon them at the right time is key.
However, then those ideas you find require all these additional cost related to making it come to life, protecting and ultimately selling them to potential customers.
I’m telling you there are certain steps I just didn’t know I had to account for. I guess because when you’re a small business you think with a small mindset about not needing certain items because you’re not big enough.
When in reality that is exactly why you need consultation and legal documentation to protect you in order for you to size up and not face litigation or someone stealing your brand, your ideas – preventing you from becoming bigger or scaling up.
So – here we are. Sometimes I think what if I hadn’t been saving for a rainy day, how will I fund my ideas and push forward to take a chance on me. Not sure if I could answer that because the last thing I would want to do is take out a loan, although I am sure that if all goes well I will be in need of one.
On the better side I am glad I have developed enough creativity to spark all the possible topics I could cover this year and next. It’s not easy to be creative and it’s even harder turning the crazy things I run into – into a good entertaining story or video.
I had one day to take a less than interesting space and transformed into a lively occupying workspace. Otherwise I wouldn’t have had any other time to. The constant back and forth between stores and home was endless.
I actually narrowed my shop to just a few store as I didn’t have time to order let alone think about the design of the space but it came together.
Thursday I had to make a tough decision with letting someone go that I worked with for 2 years. But it was for the best. On a small scale this was simply ending a business relationship. Sometimes I’m not sure when to go with my gut or head. It was definitely facts that resolved my uncertainty. No matter what, whether career or business we all have to make tough choices.
Never did I thought I would become the few people I follow reading more than one book at a time with the actual intent to finish.
Well, here I am – I am that person. Because I need it. Not because I’m forced to and I guess I don’t have to either but I want to in order to drive my creativity and knowledge and help build my overall strategy.
