Do something stupid.

Okay, I’m about to do something stupid!

I’ve said this way too many times in my short adult life. But I’m going to try and start my own business.

I haven’t been able to find a job down here in Florida. Nothing. So I’m going to try and start a small event planning company and throw murder mystery salon/spa parties for rich retirees (I wrote an adult role-playing game for ladies that takes place in a spa. It’s a murder mystery, The Updo Salon and Spa!) And try to drum up business for my graphic design as well.

I’m going to a women’s business and professional dinner next Tuesday. I’m scared to death.

I think I’m good enough and smart enough to do this. I just don’t know if I have the energy. I was sick for so long. I’ve been sick for 5 years. Where did my moxie go?

At 44, I don’t know if I have the stamina to keep up with a growing business. Can I throw a party? Can I handle the emotional toll it will take? I’ve tried to start my own endeavors before, but not something this big and not something this important. This would be my income. But what do I have to lose, right?

Wish me luck! Mainly with the women I will be leading. It will be like trying to herd drunk cats through an adult costumed role-playing game. Lord, help me!

  1. I’m rooting for you! Especially since you’ve already got in mind what you want your business to be, you’ve got a head start. I know from what I’ve heard that growing your own business can be really rough at first. But, once you get the ball rolling, it’ll be all worth it. You’re capable of more than you give yourself credit. You’ll see how much more driven you become for the sake of being an entrepreneur. Feel free to keep us updated on how it goes! I hope to start something of my own myself one day.😊

      1. I hope to be able to turn my blog into a business, to a degree. I’d love to have my own little company that can reach out to people, through writing and other ways, and help people feel less alone with their struggles with mental health or life struggles. I also want it to be an avenue for people to reach out and not be afraid to seek help, or be heard if they’d like. I’m not entirely sure what that sort of business would even be called, lol! But, it’d be pretty cool! How did you figure out that you wanted to start your own business?

      2. Smart! My friend just started her own life coaching business. I think your idea would be similar. I wish you all the luck. Lord knows we need people like you in this world. Right? Good luck! I want my own business because it’s all I’ve ever wanted. So why wait? Why be afraid? What do I have to lose? I’ve spent my whole life being scared or doubting myself and what has it ever got me? LOL The time is now. What better time? It’s the one thing I’m good at. Best advice: Find out what you love and do that. I’m doing this!! πŸ˜€
