Mandy (Delaney’s Mom) joined me and Nancy today for our weekly meeting at the Central House. We are all growing our businesses in different ways. Nancy went part time at her job to spend more time making her glass bead jewelry and is working on selling it wholesale. (check out the beautiful stretchy bracelets she made yesterday on her website spinningglassstudio.com) Mandy has been self employed for 16 years and is now expanding her Massage business to include, energy work, meditation and movement. (new blog coming soon) And me, well, I’m always looking for new idea and ways to grow my business. I guess we all are. That’s one of the things we have in common besides being creative, driven and committed to the work we love to do.
I joined my local Chamber of Commerce, but never could get myself to attend any of the meetings or mixers. By now I know myself well enough to know it’s not for me. But getting together with Nancy and Mandy, is just right. We update each other on the past week, toss around new ideas, tell each other our fears and accomplishments and encourage and inspire each other.
I feel blessed and am so grateful for my new small business community.
