So this was a big week for me. The week that I decided to pull the Band-Aid off with my business and officially launch it full time. This has been a whirlwind, but a dream come true.

I was featured here by the Dubois County Herald, here by the Dubois County Free Press, and here by Inside Indiana Business. All great affirmations that this is what I should be doing right now!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur. But I wasn’t always sure on how or what, and at times those two questions were very overwhelming. It has taken me years to finally figure out all the pieces to the puzzle I needed to have a successful business, and I definitely did not do it alone. I’m so thankful for all those that have given me words of wisdom or help along the way.

As with anything in life, you have to do your research and seek guidance. And then you have to spread your wings and fly. Sometimes you fall and make mistakes along the way. But I have learned, as long as you keep going, learn from those mistakes, and make adjustments along the way, you will be successful.

Here are some things I’ve learned just this week…

The community I live in is much more awesome than I ever imagined. The amount of love and support I have received has made my heart overflowing with joy and pride. Way to go Huntingburg, IN! You really are a city like no other!

I’m very blessed to have the family and friends that I do. They are ready, willing, and able to be a sounding board for thoughts, ideas, and feedback. They also know how to get me to loosen my reins for fun and laughs, too!

And my children, while they may be annoyed at times because I’m busy at work on my computer, they understand I’m working hard to achieve my dreams and they are learning that determination does pay off.
