Yesterday, I ran across this article on the web.
I’m a sucker for “How They Started Their Business” stories. I could spend all day on CNBC watching those documentaries on different companies….it just fascinates me. And they all seem to begin the same way…..A person with a passion.
Even though the next few months are going to be busy, I wouldn’t trade this job for anything. It is indeed…my passion.
My passion started as a kid whose mom would take her to garage sales and thrift stores. Funny thing is….I REALLY disliked going to them. But I got older, wiser,…..and in some instances…. poorer. And THEN I saw the wisdom in all those early purchases in my childhood. I began to see the originality in the items and loved using my creativity in reusing these things . And it just kept growing….and then Ebay happened….and I could combine what I loved doing with bringing in some income. Wow! What fun…AND I could pay the electric bill! And it still is morphing into very fun things…this blog….my store.
I know I’m not the only one. When did your passion for this business start? What inspired you? Tell us what made you make the leap into all of this?
