So inevitably you’ve heard the news about some SUPER big changes that have occurred in the last month here at studio 60… which you could just as well say :: MY LIFE. 😉
At the beginning of the month, I let go of my lease for my consultation/shooting space and decided to move back to my home studio.
NO, my business is not failing. No to 100 other dumb things.
I just didn’t feel that it made my “ship go faster” in terms of my business in the 18 months I was there… so I cut the cord.
It was GREAT having a space that I didn’t have to worry about when meeting a client. Beautiful, calm… neat and CLEAN! Unlike my home at the moment… HA! However, the central nervous system of studio 60 (aka: my office) has been at my home this whole time… so I thought it would be good to bring everything back under one roof. Plus now, I’ll have wi-fi again! HA!
It’ll be good to get things ready in the dead of winter without having to head into town and warm a cold space!
About a week after determining I was going to move back to home base, I saw Danielle’s request for “Help Wanted” at Refreshing Designs (a ‘Design, Paint, Decorate’ business, who also runs a retail furnishings store, and who was just recently purchased by Karvonens) and I thought… what the heck!?! That would be a great way to fill up the days when ALL THREE OF MY GIRLS are at school, and I’ll be in town if they need me… well… fate decided it was something that should happen, so hired I did get, and I’ve been juggling the crazy ever since.
Now, throw in school starting, working a retail job after 8 years of ‘being my own boss’ and still running a successful business of my own? I think I see my ‘highlights’ starting to pop a little faster! LOL but I’m excited for the change of seasons (retail wise, not actually) and being part of a fun endeavor with the R D | K crew as they grow in their journey together.
At this time… I’m just holding on – taking it one day at a time, and keeping the coffee flowing! …after all, it’s 5:30am and I haven’t seen this time of day in a few years 😉
Cheers my friends! Have a SAFE and HAPPY Labor Day weekend, and because I can’t do a post without a photo… here is a beautiful Minnesota sunset with one of my Class of 2016 Senior Girls | Emma.
