10. Have my own business (be my own boss)
Completed April 2009
I say April 2009 because that’s when we officially filed for our LLC, even though it’s not a business that supports anyone full time just yet. Still, it’s our own business, and we’re our own bosses, for better or for worse.
I’ve always wanted to have my own business. I’ve always had a plan or an idea or something in the works. When I was 10, it was an ice cream soda shoppe. In junior high school, it was Dynamic Duo Designs, and my best friend and I sold custom hand-painted T-shirts to our friends. I also tried getting a Babysitter’s Club put together.
There’s also been starting my own magazine (I’ve actually come back to that one several times), custom hand-knits, baking and catering, and finally my latest idea and venture, web and graphic design.
This is one that’s been a work in progress for most of my life, and it’s nice to see it finally come to fruition. There’s been many bumps and unexpected surprises on the road, but we’re all hanging in there, determined to make Purple Pen Productions a great success.
