It is a scary situation to now have property…retail property. To be strapped down to a lease that forces you to really chug along on the business you’ve been building for years now. All of that hard work was just preparation and baby steps for the obstacles that are coming now. On the other hand, it is really exciting.
Along with writing, I’ve wanted a bakery for a long time. The many strike outs at finding the right place and getting screwed over by other business owners have led to many thoughts of forfeiture, but the perseverance stayed there and I wanted to do this badly. I’ve not only built up the confidence to be proud of my range of products, but I have a landlord who is on board and convinced I will be a powerhouse in the community I have secured space at. I’m finally leaving the home kitchen!
I just have to say, welcome to the ride. This is going to be interesting.
