Reality. I like to think I live there, but really I have my head in the clouds a lot more than I care to admit. Partly, having a floaty brain is what leads me to creating things like Gifted. Other partly, having a floaty brain leads me to wondering if I paid my car insurance.
The Gifted Blog
Annnnnnd... I made it! Gifted officially opened on May 2nd in a soft, quiet kind of way. I was afraid of being overwhelmed (which happens to me easily) with "Grand Opening-ness" so I just ... opened. I unlocked my door and people came through it.
So, I have a business plan. Words on paper, organized and ready to show anyone who might be able to help me move forward from here. I was nervous about showing people my plan. I had never written one before so I didn't even know if it was "good" or not. I had to get over that fear very quickly because my next step in this process was all about the plan.
The planning stages of Gifted started in January 2015 with the spark of an idea for a great gift shop. I didn't want to open a store unless I could come up with an idea and plan to make it unique. I love boutiques, but I wanted to create a shop that people came to with intention. The end result is a happy marriage of two things I love... gifts and paper.
