Blog #1 – who am I?

Wow – I can’t believe I got this technology to work!! Even if I have no followers right now, I’m practicing. I won’t bore you with senseless banter! I am a former Target HR guru who couldn’t stand the commute and had a hard time with making everyone happy, so I quit. I now spend much more time with my daughter and very funny fiance; and reinvested myself in my real estate career while painting furniture. Can you believe I’m a creative?!?!? I’m hoping I find others like me along the way who can relate to my story because we have a lot of venting to do!! To answer the question, who am I…. I guess I’m not 100% sure – a mom, pseudo wife, REALTOR, artist, business owner, scrapper, daughter, sister, the list continues for a mile!

I opened my own store almost one year ago! It’s been very well received and successful, but not without a lot of stress! My analogy for first year in business: you get knocked down, you get back up, you get knocked down, you get back up, you get knocked down, you get back up and so on and so on! If you think it’s easy, let’s talk (insert LOL emoji). I am the custodial engineer (janitor), the creative director, the CEO, the CFO, a vendor, a buyer – sheesh – I’m everything! I am down to about 12 vendors now – I believe in quality, not quantity. People have hated me over the last year – People have loved me. I constantly think about managing money and how to generate more revenue. Follow along as I work through tutorials on making old stuff look cool and while I stand on my soap box crying because we’re not profitable enough on February 9th, 2018 (again, insert LOL emoji). Thanks for reading – this is about to get real!

This is me looking like a professional REALTOR at a coffee shop – what you don’t see are my warm up pants! Maybe don’t judge a book by the cover – I look a little more put together than I was that day.
