Taking the plunge

July 23rd, 2013

Dear Diary,

No more hesitating. I'm taking the plunge. The water may be cold and jarring to the system, but nonetheless, I'm going to jump.

The initial reactions and support have all been positive, I am thrilled! I am so thankful for the online babywearing community. I have learned so much in groups like Threadheads and Babywearing Love and Support on Facebook, and Wrappers Paradise on thebabywearer.com, as well as the many instructional channels on YouTube. It has been these communities which have helped me develop my love for woven wraps, wrap-geekery, and textiles in general.

I know there will be obstacles along the way, but I am wide eyed and eager to get my feet wet. I have so many ideas swirling around in my head, so many dreams, visions! But first things first, 

  • Lots of prayer
  • Family support
  • Website domain name
  • Registering business name
  • Social media
  • State laws/regulations
  • Sleepless nights
  • Research, research, research, and still more research
  • Spreadsheets
  • Design ideas
  • How to write a business plan?? All of a sudden wishing my concentration at business school was entrepreneurship not human resource management...

Diary, this is going to be fun, hopefully I don't get water up my nose or flail in the deep end! How many minutes did I have to tread water for again in swim-qual during boot camp?
