Follow Your Dreams…

The Fool ~ Tarocchi di VetroI love how Steve Jobs shares with us how he started his business back in the day. He is just one year older than me, which is a sobering thought, and I thank the Divine Powers that I still have my health. My mother was a small business owner, and I just recently have decided to stop “working for the man” and come out with my own business, which I lovingly call Sleeping Gypsy. Having and running a …small business is a challenge to say the least. While I get such satisfaction from having control of my own dreams, more importantly helping others is high on my list of priorities in life as well. It is something I have been doing my whole life anyway, so I decided to go ligit, hang out my shingle and emerge from the closet of being too intimidated by big business (which, ironically, Apple Corp. did eventually turn into) and being afraid to follow my own dreams. My mother was a small business owner who nurtured her business for well over 40 years. She now inspires me from the Other Side and helps me to keep my eye on what is important in life: freedom, faith and belief in ones self. Small business will save this country from the sad economic shape that it is in today. So, if you dream of striking off on your own, follow that dream. If not, please patronize the small businesses in your area, both locally and globally. We can make a difference i this world today if only we try. I know Mom and Steve would approve…
