What a great time to ponder days of past and goals of the future. As an entrepreneur, I find that no title really suits me. I am the worker, the inventor the visionary. I can be the one with silly ideas and brilliant ones! But mostly being in my position is a state of mind. The goals that I want to achieve are ones that I can only possess. Perhaps I can effect some big change in the world ultimately hoping that at some level I can bring joy to others, while cultivating my talents mixed with dreams of super success.
It is with great anticipation that I start out 2016 with the conscience decision to boldly go where no man has gone before, A START UP. When I filled up my garage last night with 20 boxes stacked high, my friend and I laughed as the garage door went down. What was I thinking? Funny, they actually look like the classic hope chests of days gone by, storing memories of the past while looking to an unknown future plan of some sort. This chest is a dollhouse “hoping” to fulfill the fantasy of children in make-believe and creativity. A child’s first house to design and decorate is my desire. Kids love to be grown-ups. So ironic and funny as I’m still trying to figure out how to be one.
My next few months of 2016 will be in the discovery of offerings to add to these dollhouses to give full power to these potential designers/creators and imaginary players. As a designer, taking it “small” to scale a challenge, but one I plan to tackle with joy. It is a job I take very seriously.
My wish for you in 2016? Find what you love doing, embrace the power you possess and give your God given talents a chance to dream. And yes, to go where no man has ever gone before…. Within.
Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year in 2016!
