I think a lot about where I'm going and the pace in which I'm getting there. There is no denying that my path is meandering and that my pace is leisurely. I run this business for the most part without borrowing and out of my apartment. I made an initial $100 investment 4 or 5 years ago and have pretty much reinvested every dime back in to the business, give or take a few personal loans to and from myself.
I keep thinking I need to take the next step and get in to a studio. I daydream about leaving a clean home in the morning and coming home to a clean home at night. I fantasize about industrial vents, stainless steel double sinks, commercial steamers and rows and racks of inventory that lives somewhere other than my kitchen table. I imagine a home office that I actually use for officey things instead of setting up at the dining room table to supervise the pots all morning.
Did you know that the only reason I ever consider moving in to a house is so I can set up a home studio? I actually really enjoy apartment living, except for this whole lack of studio space thing.
I don't have any grand announcements or anything today. Just wondering what it would take to get in to a commercial space ($) and whether or not I'm willing to take the financial risk of signing a lease (no).
