I made a promise to myself when I was sixteen years old: "Don't Be Normal."
For the most part, I've lived an extraordinary existence and am thankful for it. I've traveled the world, I have wonderful, smart kids and amazing friends. But going out on my own for business is a quest I feared I would never do. Because of fear.
There are so many things to say about the first three weeks of having my own company.
When I decided to take the step out of "normal" full time work, I felt like I'd jumped off Bear Bridge on Donnor Summit. And started flying. And that is better than being tranq'd like this Bear who got stuck there a few years ago.
There has been so much support from my previous workmates, my friends and acquaitances that I was overwhelmed with goodness, and quite frankly, luck. I absolutely could not have done this without them.
I now have six clients, 3 substantial, and a few that will be only a few hours a month.
My other job, as President of the local Truckee Community Theater board, is also completely fulfilling. It is amazing how much talent is here in Tahoe. I am so very lucky to be able to tap into it, contribute to the pool and be involved above and beyond. I hope you will join us for an extravagant evening on August 28, for Broadway at the Park.
