Now on to the topic of today... minding my own business!
At least one of you picked up on my mention that I am considering starting a business in 2010. Tonight I actually took a first step! It's pretty exciting stuff. I'm not entirely positive how much I want to disclose at this point because there are so many unknowns. It would just be a lot to explain and describe for it not to work out in the long run. But let's just say for now that I have to obtain a license. Tonight I went to a meeting to begin filing paper work for my license. There are still some questions left to be answered, and a few friends in "the biz" that I need to speak with, but I'm really looking forward to it. I learned a lot of useful information tonight at the meeting, so I'm ready to take that and run with it. I think this is going to be a great step for our family if all works out.
Meanwhile, if you'd like, you could send up a few prayers that things will work out the way they're meant to. Because starting this business would involve me taking at the very least a leave of absence from the school system, possibly even quitting, it's a big deal for us financially. Over time it could become more dependable, but at first it's going to be an investment, and probably a pay cut for me. Things have been going really well for Josh at work, so I'm hoping his successes will offset the initial dip in the income I'm contributing.
Ok, ok, without getting too far into all my worries about this endeavor, I'll leave it there. Just say a prayer or two... or eleven for us :]
