Exactly what I needed to hear.

The sleepless night before an exciting journey.

I woke up at 3:30 this morning to the sound of a cat fight, I promptly closed my window and rolled over expecting to fall back asleep. I didn't. So here I am, posting at 4:30 am realizing that this is the start of my day.

This is an interesting feeling you see... in my 23 years, the only reason why I could not sleep was the night before an exciting trip. I would pack late into the night, try to sleep, not be able to. I am blessed with the ability to fall asleep anywhere, at any time. My body will easily fall asleep at 8pm and not rise until 8am with no interruptions beyond hitting the snooze on the alarm.

So, I am awake and very excited for another amazing trip! I am finally motivated and have realized my dream of having Threaded City be my main source of income! As much as I have had the dream of becoming reliant upon my own business and having it be successful, I never truly believed that it was possible.

Yesterday, I had the appifany that it could actually be possible. With some number crunching, research, and some motivating blogs from friends and etsy, I'm running with it.

Awake, Excited, Nervous, and all words associated with the like... here we go!

Take a Look

I have added new Gauges. Enjoy!

One Step at a Time

This week I will be meeting with an attorney to get an LLC for my businesses. How exciting!

I'm working with Norther Indiana Innovation Center. Check them out and let me know if you are interested. They help students in High School and College working towards being an Entrepreneur.


More gauges coming soon!

Girly Gauges

Check out my new blog!

I make and sell gauges for women with gauges who want to accessorize.
Let me know what you think good or bad.

Here's to a new year the start of a new business!


New Year, New Goals

well kind of... when I say "new goals" I mean old ones that I will be officially working on. In Dave Ramsey's newsletter I found a basic, but inspirational article. Turn Your Dreams Into Reality! Micah and I are working on some life planning/goal setting today. I'm very excited about this and the direction it will give us.

Here's a few ideas I have: (not in order)
- Have a house with ROOM (more than 500 sqft)
- Start Threaded City, and have an online and brick and mortar store be a lucrative business
- Be able to go on Vacations (Hiking Trips, Extended Cycling Trips, Europe, Etc)
- Know the ins and outs of being a survivalist and have the land to be off the grid
- Live in other places (Alaska, Colorado, Europe)
- Have a family (Dog first, maybe a couple of kids)
- Graduate
- Learn a Language
