The lure of being inspired by business owners that have done it tough is what lured me to two conferences over the week.
Even though Celebrate Living History is now on track to becoming a not-for-profit its always good to be surrounded by those that have done it before.
While I have support of my friends, my family think I’m nuts and should pursue a proper job with a boss that will pay me.
They just see me working hard and don’t realise why I bother, but the reason why is in my heart I know this is the job I was meant to do.
I think I had an amazing opportunity in the past year as I have trodden in footsteps other people my age don’t have time to do, not many would consider seniors to be some of their best friends.
Some of the advice that resonated with me was “Fail Fast and when you do find out what went wrong” while I don’t consider what I have done as a massive failure, it was a great achievement but now I know I can’t do it all on my own if I continue I’ll go broke and kind of bonkers!
Most say I’m brave for doing this all solo, but I don’t think I am, I know there is a big picture and when I finally find my rainbow I’ll be the happiest girl in the world with my mascot Bunny by my side!
Its funny I spent all this time looking for the perfect board and they were under my nose all the time.
These are the people I share stories with in the park and they are the most intelligent insightful people I know, I only had to turn off the blinkers to see what I really had.
