Happy Boxing Day! I hope your holidays have been pleasant? Had Dave’s family over today. It was lovely. Little children – no, actually – unicorns in the house. How lovely was that?! Prepared a big old bowl of German Potato Salad, served up with – yep, you guessed it – T U R K E Y ! Dee-lish-us!!
And that brings the Christmas festivities to a close in our home for another year. Grace is off back to the States mañana early doors, and I have a meeting with Paul to make a plan. New building. Move. Our TV shows 5th and 6th January. All that good stuff. So it’s back in the saddle tomorrow. Which is fine by me.
I am happy we had a few lovely days with the family, and I am happy to be going back to work, too. Excited actually. There’s so much to do !! Parked it all for a few days; ready to get the key back in the ignition now!
Somebody asked me whether I was scared of this Big Move, the expansion, the financial pressures that it will create. Let’s consider that….
Scared. Synonyms for scared: frightened, worried, intimidated. Nope. If I were scared, frightened, worried or intimidated – I wouldn’t entertain it, would you?! No, no, no. Dave and I both agree that this is not only a good move, but a necessary one. This will open doors; this is exciting, not scary! It’s change, but it’s healthy change. I will probably pedal even harder for the first few months, just to make sure we don’t get anywhere near the cliff edge – but that’s just a built-in workaholic kinda safety mechanism.
We aren’t gung ho business people. Any business carries with it an element of risk – that is the very essence of being an entrepreneur. You can control the controllable for sure, but there will always be unforeseen circumstances, things that you never factored in, which will throw you a curveball, create disruption. And THAT’s when you find out how good you are at running a business, and how good your team is.
I reckon we have a formidable team. We also have a pretty epic, unique and VERY strong Clarity community. That’s YOU !!
So am I scared? Nah! Am I scarey? Now that’s a different question! And the answer is YES. I can be if I have to be. It’s all part of running a business.
Time to go find that little girl of mine and spend our last evening together before she goes back to America.
