Leaving my day job and working from home.

I recently went to Christie Wright's Business Boutique in Phoenix.  It was A W E S O M E.  I learned some stuff,  other stuff was confirmed and I feel I have a focus now, I think!   I've shared before about how my mind starts running all over.  

 My first order of business will be to start where I'm at with what I have.   My rented space at American Classics Marketplace in Colorado Springs.  

This year has been tough, financially, with my booth.  It's not paying it's own rent.  Whaaaaat?   It did well for a long time, but as soon as I decide I'm quitting my other job that happens.  Devil!  He knows that a blessing is coming my way and he's trying to keep me from going after it!  All of this time, as I've prayed about leaving, I kept hearing Trust God.  Then I got to the point where I wasn't praying about it anymore, I was just thanking God for it.   I'm still trusting.  It will turn around or God has something better in mind.  

 I believe as I am able to put in more time, it will bring in more mulah!  Yes.  To quote Christie Wright "Your business will grow in proportion to how much time you commit"    I've seen this in the past.   When I've spent time rearranging, restocking and freshening up, I've had more sales.  

I've been so busy with other stuff (that dreaded day job!) that I found myself driving faster past the Marketplace so's I wouldn't feel guilty about not stopping in.  No more of that!   I'm starting with a new planner, and managing my time differently then I was before (more on that later!)   I have a few more actual work days and then my time, my energy and my creativity belong to me!  Yippee!  (13 days left!)

New Adventures coming up!

In September last year I wrote in this post that I was wanting to leave my "day" job.  The one that pays my salary and has benefits.   Well I am happy to report that I have 14 work days left!

This girl is doing the Happy Dance!!!   I am so thrilled to be able to come home and love on my family, clean my own house, work on my booth, write, blog, sew, dance, sing, laugh....   whoa I was getting carried away for a minute.   
I got this fun image from here  I don't know if that's legal so don't copy me!

So close, but yet so far away.  I cant wait.  I hope you can join me here on my blog in my New Adventures!
