Secrets Divulged

Have you ever noticed that when you are the busiest, you feel the most useful and fulfilled? Yes, I would rather be a little less busy and have time for more of my pleasurable things, like blogging and crafting. What I am getting at is this: I have been too busy to blog due to my new business venture. Yes I have finally taken the plunge and registered our new business. We are incorporated and hopefully within the next 6 days we will have an internet sales business underway. I will not disclose the website yet, but soon my friends. Please do not be alarmed of my long blogging absences. They only mean I am busy with life.

I am not mistaken when starting this business. I know the risks and the possible outcomes. It is something I have a little more control over than I might in the "job market".  I would appreciate all of the positive thinking you have on this subject, and none of the negative. As a Pagan, I know the power of optimism in one's life.  I listened to an audio book called, Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway. It spoke of fear as a healthy and natural emotion that we cannot get rid of, but must acknowledge and move on. Some fears are rational and keep us from harm, but many are irrational and keep us from living.

I am super excited to be starting our own business. It is something that must have been staring us in the face for a while. We have read so many books leading up to this thought. Everything in our lives has prepared us for this moment. When I did my three rituals asking for success and prosperity, I was a little deflated when nothing was handed to me. A month later (as these things often take a moon cycle to happen) I finally saw a clue. The book, Four Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss, was my ticket out of poverty. My husband had been reading it for weeks, telling me I really should read it too. I am not into reading all of these business books like he is, I often get bored of that topic. I read one page of this book (right in the middle of it) and couldn't stop reading. It all made too much sense to me. I definitely recommend it for anyone, but will say that it won't work for everyone. Some people are suited to certain lifestyles. The only thing keeping me thinking that it is for me, is that I can identify with the author so much, we have the same learning styles it seems.

I have no delusions about this business. I know that there is a  very real chance that we will only lose money, or just break even. There is also the undeniable fact that we may succeed. This venture may be the beginning of so many more that fund the life that we dream of. At this point our dreams are so vivid, we will not settle for merely making it. We will strive toward the success we can nearly taste, we can see it, just off in the distance. This attempt will succeed, no matter how long it takes.


Take risks, learn from mistakes. Life is meant to be lived.
