I have shared my thoughts on my goal of opening a Christmas store, I have received great advice, encouraging and some eye opening. As a person who suffers from anxiety, the eye opening words should probably scare me, but this is the new me having this goal is the carrot dangling above my head.
Life is about challenges and I am up for this challenge, I have my notebook of my vision, and though I am not ready to share what exactly those visions are yet. (Shhh! trade secrets) I believe I have some unique ideas, which I will see when I go on "field trips" to local Christmas stores starting this summer.
I understand the risks involved with opening your own business, but I feel there is a need for a shop around here, there are very few Christmas shops in Western Massachusetts and I believe this will fill a need. The economy is slowly getting better and when I am ready to take this step, hopefully it will be fully recovered.
I am standing...
