Kindle Book Update

I’m still working on the first draft of my garage sale book.

I thought of more chapter ideas so that is what I will be working on this week.

I’m about half done.

My mom had a garage sale on Friday that I helped with so that sparked ideas and I made $20!

I’m still working on my business. I met with Tara, my realtor/mentor a week ago Friday to talk about my business flyer. I think from now on I’m just going to call her my mentor. She looked at my flyer and gave me some great ideas how to improve it. We talked for about 45 minutes. She’s awesome and gives great advice.

I don’t have any appointments this week so that gives me time to write.

Yay!!!

Here’s My Flyer

My flyer is complete!

I am happy with the way it turned out! I like what it says and my logo.

I’m just not sure about the font. Is it too fancy? I know it doesn’t match my logo on the bottom of the page.

I’m not sure.

I was going to play around with the font after work tonight and try different fonts.

Here it is:

I know it has a couple of typos. I’ll change them later

So what are your thoughts?

Doubting Myself

I am in my favorite writing spot working on my flyer.

It’s a gloomy day. It’s snowing and the skies are gray.

Just like my mood.

As I write my thoughts on paper, doubts come in.

You’re not smart enough to have your own business.

No one else in your family has their own business so why do you think you can?

Maybe I should give up before I start. Will this really go any where?

Will Tara, my real estate agent, laugh at my flyer?

Will it be good enough or will she tell me to work on it some more?

Some days, like today, it’s hard not to crawl back under the covers and let doubt rule.

I’ve let these doubts rule most my life.

Until now.

Do I know what the future holds?

No.

Do I know if my business will make it?

No.

What I have learned in the last couple of weeks is that have to push doubt aside and get out of bed and get moving.

I edited my flyer today.

Am I 100% happy with it?

No.

But I am closer to my goal.

Am I scared to show this part of me to the world?

Yes, I am, but it will be ok.

When I get home tonight I will retype it and see what I have. I can play with fonts and colors. I can edit it again.

In time I will come up with something I’m happy with.

Until then I will keep moving forward.

I made progress today. I got out of bed and put words on the page.

My doubts didn’t win.

I am happy with this

Fun Friday:  Naming My Business

I’m trying to see decide what I should name my business.

Below are the names I’m thinking about.

An Organized Lady

One Organized Lady

The Organizing Lady

Lighten Your Load

Open Spaces Organizing

Organized Chaos

Everything In Its Place.

I’m torn between these two.

Organized Chaos

Or

Open Spaces Organizing.

I’m leaning toward Organized Chaos.

Open Spaces Organizing  is practical.  It tells a story. Simple.

Organized Chaos is a little on the sassy side.  It also tells a story.  It just isn’t that obvious.  It’s the name I keep coming back to.

What are your thoughts? 

What name do you like?
