Have you ever slept on your arm all night? You know, you wake up and it feels fine, but then later in the afternoon you get this gnarly ache that gives you empathy for people who suffer with arthritis.

All I can say is… Ouch!

Do you think it’s a bad idea to work out at the gym tonight? I’m not exactly looking forward to it, but I’m psyching myself up to go on the premise that it “might make it feel better” or something.

I’m currently working on importing my old Blogger/Blogspot entries. When that’s all finished, I’ll move on to skinning the forums to match this adorable theme (Thank you, Julie!) …And then maybe when that’s done I can get back to business as usual. Wheew!

Today I was forced to attend a seminar in Rancho Cucamonga… Yeah, that’s a real place, not just a fictional location that Bugs Bunny refers to in his cartoons. And while I was sitting there half-listening to information about how we can add business loans to our service line-up, I envisioned all the small businesses in my community.

How did they get there? Did they just wake up one day and decide they’re done working for “the man” and hang a shingle? From what I absorbed in that seminar, the answer is… not exactly. Still, I admire their bravery. I like this brand of freedom that grabs Destiny by both lapels. Although being your own boss comes with a slew of challenges, it’s worth it in my book.

I smiled, thinking of all the restauranteurs, chiropractors, hair stylists, and retailers in my neighborhood… But then something really dangerous happened: I pictured myself as one of them. I figured, a little extra income wouldn’t hurt, since working for a not-for-profit business seems to mean they profit and I don’t.

Well, I suppose you’ll find out how serious I am in the next week or so. If I start doing crazy things like designing a logo and my own marketing materials, look out! Now that I know more about how it all works, I’ve got a funny feeling that I won’t be able to resist the allure of working toward becoming my own boss.

…And in the process, helping those local merchants.

Because restauranteurs need menus and signage, chiropractors need loyalty programs, hair stylists need business cards and web sites – and all of them need effective advertising!

Stay tuned?

When asked to sum me up, my brother said:

What can I say about my sister… She’s kind
of like one of those Everlasting Gobstoppers
Sweet, strong, and always changing her taste!
