In January, Katie and I wrote down our goals for 2019. Then we set list aside and promptly forgot about it.
Before we knew it, the months zoomed away, our lists of projects, proposals, and clients stacked up and summer was rounding the corner.
Katie and I decided to celebrate the end of a busy late spring week with a glass of wine and I just happened to pull out that list of goals we made in January. We were shocked when we realized we had already reached eight of the ten markers we had set for ourselves just six months before.
How had that happened so quickly? We had all but forgotten about the list.
I share our story because we are learning and changing along the way. As you know, neither of us had ever started a business. All of this is new to us. And we’ve learned more than we ever imagined possible. It’s important to document each of these steps.
And of that same vein, this is the final installment in our (starting a) business series where we’ve share all about turning a passion into a career. To conclude the series, we are sharing about Blue Pencil Home’s successes and obstacles; in addition, I’ve included some bonus lessons that have arisen lately in recent conversations with other small business owners. See the series’ first part here and the second part here.
Even though Blue Pencil Home isn’t that old, it has been a great ride so far. We are thrilled to be able to share our story with you.Read More
