Happy New Year & May the Force Be With You!
I can't believe I haven't posted anything since December 15. I guess time really does fly when you're having fun. We had a great Christmas and a happy New Year with lots of gatherings of family and friends.
My son's 8th birthday was on the 23rd, so I thought I'd show you some of the Star Wars cupcakes I made for him. The Vadar and lightsaber cupcakes were inspired by flickr user Kati Peck , the R2D2 cupcakes were my own idea/design.
I can't wait to see what this year has in store for Sugar and Meringue. Maybe this will be the year I really get things off the ground. I've had some very encouraging things happen lately. I don't feel like I can talk about them 'til they're official but I will say that I might be getting some exciting recognition. I hope I can build on this recognition. We'll see what happens.
So now what?…
I see oppurtunities. I have a chance to get some great recognition. But… I don't have a liscensed kitchen. I can't persue most of these oppurtunities without a liscensed kitchen.
If I manage to find a kitchen space… I will need to figure out how to pay for it. All of the recognition and opportunities I've been talking about are "maybes" and they won't generate any income for a while.
I have a good job. But it's full-time, leaving me with little time to work on building a business and not nearly enough time to produce (let alone market) enough cookies and cupcakes to pay for a kitchen space. In this economy, can I risk giving up a good job to start a business?
I guess, I just need to take things one step at a time and see what happens. I'll go to work, take care of my family and then devote what time I have left to business planning. I think, as long as I'm working hard towards my goals, whatever is meant to happen will happen.
If only I were a Jedi…
May the force be with you in 2009!
