So what do you do?

Posted: February 4, 2010 in Uncategorized

Today marks the beginning of what has become one of the most exciting, nervous, frustrating and humbling journeys I’ve ever embarked on.

It began the minute I left college. I started a journey in hopes of finding a place to call home and an answer to that question I have always dreaded answering, ” So what do you do?”. After countless jobs, some meaningful and others just to pay the bills and play, I finally can say with confidence and pride, I am one of those people who are referred to as an entrepreneur.Wait, what? An entrepreneur in today’s economy? Sure, why not. There have been a few very successful entrepreneurs in down economies and if the Mayan’s are right, 2 more years baby, so who cares!

Today was what I would call my first full day as an entrepreneur and the count down to opening my doors to my OWN business. Never really thought or dreamed I would be saying that. My own small business.  I am my own boss, HA! Exciting, sure. Nervous, never has entered my mind. Proud, somewhere in here I am. Frustrating, if only you knew.

The success rate is 3-5 years and that was when the economy was working. What ever happens is going to happen. No looking back now, because the building is secured, the demo has been completed, the up-fit is under way, money has been handed over and the dream have started to become a reality.

I decided to join the ‘blog’ community, because I personally, need a way to document what has unfolded and is about to unfold. I have dreams for this business model &  at times I get tired of telling or explaining the concept to people, so I thought, well, there is always the ‘blog’. My sister started one I believe a year ago (numbers and memory are my weakness). I consulted her a few days ago asking, what do you write and who do you write to. It was simple, write what you want to write and write to who ever you want to write to. Sounded simple?

So here I am, taking this one day at a time and hopefully with luck, this post will be the 1st of millions.

The concept: take what I’ve enjoyed the most out of life: sports, social events, training/teaching, mingling & drinks and you have the makings of a sport and social facility in downtown or if your from these parts “uptown”.
