I am always flattered when I receive an email from ambitious, budding, entrepreneurs, wanting to get started. It's crazy how their demeanor changes from the beginning of a meeting with their list of questions (all organized like) happy and sunshiney (is that a word?), and by the end of the meeting they look like a deer in headlights, big eyes, all pastey white. With the "To Do's" and the "To Don'ts" adding up. It can get confusing and overwhelming. Shoot, even I get overwhelmed thinking about EVERY.LITTLE.THING that needs to be done, and Monkey-Toes has been going for 6 years now. So folks, if you think it gets easier, you're crazy!
So I came up with this idea... I want to use this blog as an open forum to talk about business. Yes, from time to time, I will still add my own random $.02 (did you know there is no cents sign on the keyboard??), celeb sightings, new product, deep thoughts by Jenny Ford, etc. But I really LOVE helping people out - the prob is that there is just not enough time in the day to meet with everyone.
I will have some guest bloggers from time to time to answer the questions that I cannot or do not know an answer to - especially the money stuff - numbers and I wrestle, we do not get along.
If you want to remain annonymous, email directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, grab your cup of coffee and let's get started... what will be the first topic? Ask a question and I will blog about it...Go ahead, don't be shy :)
Ok, I will bribe you - IF I USE YOUR TOPIC FIRST, YOU WILL RECEIVE 4 PAIRS OF MONKEY-TOES SOCKS!
This is a disclaimer - read carefully - please note that I am not the master entrepreneur, I do not give myself that title, I am still a living, breathing, business owner/mom/human/woman making daily mistakes/successes, trying to run a business as best I know how. All I can offer to you is my personal experience or maybe ideas that I wish I could do. I encourage you to seek out a second opinion! And I also advocate you to chime in when you have information on a topic, feel free to challenge me as well.
