This week I am grateful for....Support
I own a small handmade accessories business. I started it a year ago on a whim and within a month I decided it was going to be my full time job.
For the last year, I dragged myself out of bed every morning and went to my dreadful day job. I needed the paycheck. I saved and saved and sold as much Acute Designs merch as I could.
Last August I made the decision that October 29th would be my last day. I chose that day because it was the last Friday before my 30th birthday. I knew that I could not be 30 years old and stuck in a job I hated.
I would rather be broke and happy than unhappy with a decent paycheck.
The past six weeks I have worked for myself and loved every minute of it.
My friends and family have been so supportive - doing some of their Christmas shopping in my online shop, getting me into stores, and introducing me to other people that might be able to help my business ventures.
I could not do what I do without support and I thank each and every one of you. All the way from the bottom of my heart, I thank you.
What are you grateful for this week? Blog about it and link up over at Maxabella’s Blog.
