September & The Home Based Business

What stage of life are you in?

  • Just had your first baby?
  • Have several kids in school?
  • Have teenagers?
  • Children leaving for college? Empty nest?

Wow! As I type these different stages of life, I realize I am almost an empty nester. Not quite yet, and I do not want to rush the next couple of years away but I did just send my first off to college and my still at home son is 16. Time goes by fast and I am adjusting, once again to a different stage of life.

Whatever stage of life you are in September is a time of reflection. Change is in the air.

The old adage is so true.....

How do you keep up with change? How do you adjust? Keep going. That is really all we can do. Keep going.

At 45 years old, I have been through many different stages of life. Most of them wonderful. ;) But I keep going.

It was this time of year 15 years ago that I that I took a leap of faith and started my own ceramic hand and footprint business. I am so thankful that I did.

Fall is a time of great reflection for me. It is my January, as far as the time of year I like to set goals. As time naturally starts to slow down during the month of September, or should I say gets back on a schedule, I like to look back over the past 8months or so and see if I am on track with how I wanted my year to go.

How about you? Do you do that too? Time to start carving out something just for you.

September is a time for me to reorganize and prepare for the rest of the year. I love it. It is my favorite time of year.

I know for me business starts to pick up as many of you are contemplating starting your own business. Put me to work for you. This is a great time to start because you can be up and running for the holiday season. Many people love to have ceramic handprints and footprints made for holiday gifts. That means for you it is a perfect time to spend the next month or two practicing and then be up and running in time to deliver holiday gifts.

I bet you are like me and sometimes you wonder how to keep all the changes in your life moving along. Well, my best advice, like I mentioned above, is to just keep going. Welcome change, embrace it. It is really all we can do. Starting your own business will bring lots of change your way. It will challenge you and help you do things you never thought you could. You will be learning new things and you will be working those brain muscles as you learn and grow. It is exciting.

Look at these sweet baby prints. I bet you have imagined making these. You can and you can do it beautifully. I am here to guide you along the way.

Sending you love and a virtual cup o' joe. Such the perfect time of year for all things cozy.

You are loved.
