During February's State of the Union address, President Barack Obama said "no single event makes a trend." There is no better description to the dynamics of restoring an economy...or even personal credit. As a budding entrepreneur, I excel, I coast, then I get bap-slapped on a regular basis. I have shared how I had to scale back my business. This Spring and Summer, I slowly began adding back one ingredient at a time.
And then The Fall happened.
Sickness, 6 weeks and a day without main computer, 2 of those weeks without any computer, a botched back-up by the service repair technicians, three clients going inactive for the holidays, and a death in the family, for good measure.
For the last couple weeks, I have grieved (by way of procrastination) the idea of starting over. But, hey - it's November in Michigan. So, that means anything can happen right? Now, that I have actually rolled up my sleeves, opportunities are spilling out from every direction. #whoa
I thought of sharing these thoughts once I was through the fire, on the calm side of the forest. However, I felt led to share this educated emotion just in case one person could benefit.
Also, I have felt led to offer up my services each Tuesday morning in November to other entrepreneurs and small business owners who may be feeling a bit overwhelmed. Each Tuesday of this month, I will be available on-line (Facebook video, Google+ Hangout, Google Talk, Skype) or for drop-in sessions at Absolute Title Insurance on Liberty in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Sessions are 30 minutes, $20, and there is no limit to what we cover in that time.
