Notes From There

The Rose Garden at Julia Davis Park, Boise, Idaho. (Actually the fake blue water looks okay…undrinkable…but kinda neat.)

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.  Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”. Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

I remember back when I quit my flunky sales job at the furniture store to work at my own furniture repair business full time.  It wasn’t an easy decision because there was a lot of security in having steady employment and I had a family to support.  But then after I took that single leap of faith–and a pretty bold move I thought–I never looked back.  Later, the magic was that my former boss not only subcontracted me to do his customer service work, I also got sales commission floor time whenever I minded the store for him.  He now treated me as an equal in the business and, I swear, it was just magical how simply going from employee to being self-employed changed everything.  All because he was now in competition for my time rather than the owner of it.
