This year, as a fledgling business, it will be the first time I will not have an outside employer and will be solely responsible for generating my own income. (Click title link for more information) This has taken a lot of faith in God having brought me to this place for a reason, for other employment opportunities have come my way. I could have had 40 guaranteed hours at Nachusa, every week, for the entire season, but after the Mid-America Horticultural Trade Show I came away more excited than ever to get my hands dirty in the garden and jump back into design for the season.
I have some irons in the fire, and word is getting out about my work. (It would probably help if got that advertisement completed. :o/ ) Maybe I will be swamped with work! Maybe I will limp along for three seasons and decide to throw in the towel. maybe a totally unexpected opportunity will come my way that I will just have to explore.
I don't know; what I do know is that I have worked hard to get to this place, and had faith that I was on the right path. I also know that whatever happens it will be a learning experience.
And I know I am excited for the outcome.
