I won't sugar-coat it. Opening a brand new business is pretty frickin' scary - it's a whole new set of bills, anxiety and juggling. Doing it solo amps that fear up a little but I am very lucky - I have the most amazing parents, sister, family & friends who constantly support me. People whom I love dearly and who I know will be there come success or failure. When the worry creeps in, they remind me that I can do it. Sometimes it's just a few simple words like "you're going to do great" that still the fear. Sometimes it's having someone to bounce ideas off of or someone who will challenge you and help you think things through.
So, standing here on the edge of heart pounding excitement & a nauseating kind of fear, I'm more than pleased to announce the opening of Poppy Paperie & Gifts opening in Walkerville, June 2012.
Give me the strength to yet again spread my wings and jump - trusting in myself that I will fly.
