I thought I was going to start the year off with a business post about being happy with how well my small business did in it’s first year. Making a profit is something worth being proud of I think.
But then January kicked in and I thought it might be a little slower, but nothing I couldn’t handle. Then it progressed and things didn’t pick up the way they have in other months. And I lost my confidence.
I love my business and what I do, but this was my first real January and it wasn’t great on both a business level and on a personal level. I think I got carried away with the awesomeness that the new year promises and forgot that things take time.
I’m grateful for the work I did have for the month and I can’t wait to show you how they turned out. I love being busy and having a long to-do list. It keeps the over-analysing at bay.
I also got nervous about what I write on my blog. Is what I write driving away clients? Should I stop blogging? Are they my kind of clients? I don’t really want to give up this blog. It’s helped me through so much and it’s helped me find some awesome friends.
Maybe 2012 has set me a challenge? Maybe I need to take it with a grain of salt and remember that design businesses will have awesome months and less awesome ones too?
Sometimes this being in business for yourself is damn scary. I’m so thankful to have an outlet for it.
We’re in a new month now and I’m looking at it as a fresh month where good things can happen.
Do you have these feelings sometimes too?
