Some thoughts on Spring!

3 03 2011

Rumor has it Spring is just around the corner! Only17 days away actually, but it’s pretty hard to tell when you look out my windows and see mountains of snow everywhere! It has been a neverending winter and, even though I like winter, I’m ready for it to end. I’m seeing signs of winter loosening its grip: the days are longer and the sun — when we see it! — has a nice bit of warmth to it. Yesterday, a ‘possum spent several hours in my yard, poking around in the sunflower seeds the birds had tossed to the ground. A ‘possum is an odd looking little critter, isn’t it? It seemed fairly unconcerned with me, even though I was taking pictures of him (her?) from fairly close up.

The original purpose of my blog was to “moodle” on the rebuilding of my business: Debbie K Graphics. Yesterday’s post got sidetracked into town politics — something that will probably happen more often than not as I’m very passionate about injustice and what I perceive as people’s total lack of fact-finding before making decisions.

Ooops, I began to digress there! Business: my graphic design business has kept me “off the streets” for over 16 years! I love what I do; taking my clients’ “stuff” and creating a coherent look is such a fun thing to do! It’s like putting puzzles together when you don’t know what the final picture is supposed to be. Through the years, the economy and complacency on my part (I’m being totally honest here) have taken a toll and I am now in the very uncomfortable position of almost starting from scratch in a lousy economy. A friend suggested I contact SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives) and my first conversation with them got me very excited about the possibilities that lay ahead. It was recommended that I read “The E Myth Revisited” and I highly recommend this to anyone who is contemplating starting a business or who is in business. It is awesome!

Monday morning is my first face-to-face meeting with my mentor — I’ll keep you all posted.
