I’m Starting My Own Business!

Some of you may have noticed that I have given my blog a bit of a break. It was not because I have given up on losing weight. My focus has just been elsewhere.

A few weeks ago, I posted a picture of my anger and disappointment. I don’t like disappointment, like most people, and I have a hard time letting things go. I don’t see myself be in a work situation where the disappointment overshadows my desire to go to work.

The day after my very disappointing day, no I did not get fired, I took a day and I brainstormed with Mike (my wonderful hubby) on what should be next for me in my career. Both Mike and my dad has been huge advocates for me starting my own business but I have not really thought of the right thing and was insecure and doubtful that I could succeed.

While we were brainstorming I realized that I really want to get back to what would get me excited. Why else go to work? I knew that I want to support, especially non-profits. But it is not easy coming from the profit world into the non-profit world and I don’t feel like leaving everything I have learned behind. I am therefore starting a business that combines both.

So here I am building out my concept and will be ready to pitch my ideas to non-profits in a few weeks. I hope, I have a good idea, if not, I hope the non-profits can give feedback so I can come back with an even better idea. Otherwise, I am going back to the drawing board. Not the end of the world. I still have my daytime job.

It has been an exciting time and I will pitch you the project once I am done building out the concept.

And I hope you will give me honest and tough feedback (especially, if you work in the non-profit world).

Stay tuned!

Next post will be about weightloss. Promise!
