The past couple of weeks I've been getting the business end in order. I thought I would hate that...I don't. It's scary, but I am surprising myself with how efficient I am. Yesterday I went to a bank to set up a bank account. The woman I met with was kind and helpful and so enthusiastic about my dream.
My website is set up. I've done lots of work on it. I hope you stop by and let me know what you think. It's selahwritingretreats.com. Balancing creative with business has been challenging but fun. Creating the website, getting a federal tax id, making business cards, planning dates...
My favorite voxer group is called Butt Kickers! We hold each other accountable for our dreams. How great is that?!?! We encourage and support and laugh and nudge each other. It's been such a gift to me.
Last week, I was out shopping and I stopped at a baby store to find a baby gift. This sign was outside the store.
I mentioned, to the owner, how much I liked that quote. We started talking about books and dreams and creativity and we shared that we both began chasing our own dreams. We exchanged information (Hi Andrea, if you are reading this!) and congratulated each other on pursuing our dreams.
I am proud and excited. I am still scared and nervous. I celebrate going after my dreams.
