I quit working (teaching and coaching) after Jordan was born and spent 9 years as a SAHM. When both boys were in school I worked in the office at their elementary school and it was a fun job but not a career.
In August of 2013, Chris and I bought a business – The Governor’s Row House – an event venue. The first year was a huge learning curve for me since I didn’t have any idea how to run a business.
Then my business partner (and life partner!!!) promoted to Colonel and the Vice Wing Commander (2nd in charge) of the base here. Awesome for sure but it meant less time for Chris to be able to help with the venue.
I spent a number of months really struggling.
I thought that if we owned a venue it should be the best one around. However, after going through Tara‘s workshop (Stuck to Unstoppable) I realized that my new goal was just to do the best job I could with the venue and that took a ton of pressure off of me.
Now, I have some new goals and plans!! But instead of just thinking about stuff I can do or just talking about them, I’m taking steps toward seeing those goals become a reality.
It is a little scary because there are definitely risks involved and there will be some steps that are WAY outside of my comfort zone. However, I’m super excited that for the first time in MANY years, I’m taking action and going for something big!!!
I do have big plans and I’m going for it even though it might be hard and it might be stressful and it might take some time!!
So, I’m going for it and the plan is to have a 2nd business that compliments our wedding venue and allows me to use some of my life experiences (besides cleaning and ironing!).
What are you going for these days?!
