Going on for the week:
1. Open house cocktail party for the new Four Seasons Palo Alto (one of the benefits of having a CPA/MBA combo - established wedding vendors want to work with me!). They get invited to parties. They invite me to attend, too....Gotta love it. :)
2. Meet & greet with a photographer I plan to work with...
3. Attend a bridal show training meeting...
4. Last but most certainly not least - we`re off to Maui Friday for a friend`s wedding. With any luck, I`ll get a little more practice with the whole day-of thing under my belt. And, we`re going to go tour a few facilities if we can arrange it as well....
My goal is to keep up with my call-backs/initial contats to new propects, etc.
As for something in my childhood that formed my entrepreneurial spirit - here`s a few: Hanging out at my dad`s appliance store. School fundraising things we had to do. And, having to get awesome grades so I could get a full ride in college probably did it, too...
Hey Chris I was wondering what happened yesterday. I was planning on doing if for you, but I didn`t want to step on your toes .
This week plans are to continue to advertise in various places, that are of course cost effective...I gotta keep watching the pocket book. My husband is a firefighter and mentioned that Miami dade is having a fishing tournament and is allowing perople to advertise, so I`m gonna be on that like white on rice.
Other than that, no other plans.
I got hit with several large wholesale orders at once so my whole week is going to be filling orders and hiring a part time employee. My younger son`s hearing test is today and he starts therapy tomorrow so that is a big part of my week.
Childhood stuff that formed my entrepreneurial spirit... my parents never handed out praise, so I was always driven to seek that. Nowadays I don`t care much about praise, but that drive has stuck with me. Sometimes it stinks because I get into a "nothing I do is good enough" mode, but I snap myself out of it often and try to appreciate what I have - a growing business, a great spouse, two miracle babies and a roof over my head.
Plan for this week?! My parents are coming TOMORROW!!! I am doing my best to clean up the place; clean up the fridge by dumping away all food I might get a nag from them.
my reason is just like yours, Chris, and Kathy`s ... but will write more later.
