And here we are.
As of today, we are officially owners of our very own LLC. And this very cute desk that we're redoing to be housed in our very own LLC.
|From June 2011|
Let me tell you, starting a business is an interesting endeavor; from driving all over Hell and half of Georgia for random errands I didn't know I needed to, to meeting random people and plunking down sums of money for all sorts of things, to applying for things I didn't know I had to apply for!
And being named Business Manager, well, let me tell you, in my one week of employment, I can assure you, it's not a cake-walk.
Plenty of Doubting Thomases have emerged much to our surprise. I didn't know friends had such opinions on the matter, but they do. To them, I have been forced to smile through gritted teeth.
But most of our friends and family have been supportive and happy for us. Their love has been a strength to of us.
We're ready. We're terrified. Let me tell you, after years and years of nomadic moving for school and work, it feels eerie to take our fates and our future into our own hands. It's sort of almost against nature to buck the system and say, "We'll pass on full-time employment, benefits and a 401k... we'd rather do this ourselves." Yes, strange and a little wrong.
And so very right at the same time. As I mentioned, we've always known this day would come. We've dreamed up our office more times than we can count, and so now we leap. Goodness, it's scary to imagine our own lives in front of us now. We don't know quite how things are going to go. How could we?
Perhaps we'll be destitute and jobless soon, or it'll all work out nicely. In the meantime, we're blessed to have plenty of part-time employ (by way of three jobs!!!) to keep the bills paid.
Oh so very blessed indeed.
And so, we shall see the places we go.
Oh, the places we'll go.
