No, not because I made a gazillion sales on etsy so don't try to find my QYDJ feature, it's not there...yet ;-). This is more out of necessity, a blessing in disguise if you will.
The story: When my husband and I decided to split up, I panicked and got a job, ASAP. Gone were my days of homeschooling my children, running my business and keeping house. Things changed overnight. But it felt good. It was a change and a challenge and I was up for it. Ahh, how we try to convince ourselves that making choices out of desperation are good. Not.
My family suffered, my business suffered, I suffered. I was drowning.
Then, my 82 year old mother recently came down with pneumonia, then needed angioplasty. Spending time with her and reflecting on my current life, I realized I wasn't happy with the direction of my life. We came up with a solution. Quit my job, take care of her and devote more time to my business...a lot more time.
Bee's Vintage, an etsy shop I had prior to going back to work. Oh, how I missed Bee's Vintage. I'm excited to get the shop up and running again.
Excited but terrified! I know that I will work longer, harder hours to run both businesses than I ever did at the law firm, but it's something I love, something I'm passionate about. And I will have the flexibility to devote more time to my family.
On a business note: Latherati was featured in two treasuries this week. Yay! Check them out here and here.
