Planning, planning, planning.
Because I couldn't start my own business, I channeled that energy into helping other small businesses. I really love helping others make their dreams come true. Sometimes it was actual work, other times it was a brainstorming session, and other times it was to gather an unofficial panel to give feedback. As I have traveled, I have left a trail of amazing women, whom I call dear friends, who have inspired me as I start my own business.
I have fears, as one does... about financial commitment, about where, about when, about someone else stealing my idea in the same area. But I also have A LOT of excitement about having my own shoppe, and collaborating with other creative souls.
