Well, it’s been some time since my last post – and I have been making decisions.
The biggest one is: I’m going to start my own business.
Wow – look at that – one little sentence and my whole life is about to change.
Now, this is not a lightly-made decision. I have thought about little else for days, made lists of pros and cons, discussed it with my husband and daughter, my sister, my best friend, my jobs counselor at Emploi-Qébec, and several of my former classmates. The real deciding factor, however, was the advice of the man who for eight weeks was my supervisor at the company where I did my internship. He told me he would write me a letter of recommendation anytime I asked, but that he thought I should start my own business.
This is a man who has worked in this field for some time, and I value his opinion and trust his judgment. When I added his input to all the other reasons I had for considering this option, it began to seem like it had a real possibility of success.
Now I have to research what resources may be available to me, and figure out how to go about starting this new enterprise.
Wish me luck…
Best of luck with your venture, MA! I have a sideline in addition to my regular 9 to 5, and with good service you’ll find your business will build momentum.
Just linked here from your post on the forum. I’m in the same boat as you and your situation is similar to mine so I’m glad to find someone who has the same aspirations as me. Of course your a lot further along the line than I am, more knowedgable and in canada ( i’m in UK ) but I hope to use you and your future success as an inspiration as it seems your doing well!!!
Good luck 😉 but this was a long long time ago you don’t update this a lot do you?…
I’ll have to start updating it now that I know folks are reading it!
I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
