Cross one off, add one on

That’s me referring to the multi-page to-do list that is shrinking just enough to stop me from packing dead leaves in my underwear and setting myself on fire with despair.

It’s crunch week and the aim is to launch the new business before Halloween. I’m in some sort of odd calm today, partly because I’ve had two separate people test drive the development site and both give it a thumbs up. This is excellent news because both are totally different kinds of users (one an average customer type, the other is ‘in the business’). Feedback has been positive and that’s made my mind chill out a bit even though my schedule and workload are still heavy.

I’m glad that a few minor roadblocks have delayed what would have been my launch a couple of weeks ago. I could have launched, sure, but it wouldn’t have been the right thing to do. I’ve had more time to research, write, edit, create even better graphics, and also polish little details which no one but me will ever notice. This little gift of time has afforded me the opportunity to get things even more right than they were, and that’s going to hopefully make a big difference in how first impressions and sales go.

Wednesday is when I should know for sure whether certain things beyond my control will delay my launch. I’m not letting myself get overly concerned about the ‘what-ifs’ and I’ve certainly got enough to keep myself busy no matter what. The interesting thing about having my own business is that I am in control of a lot, not in control of some, but totally responsible for how I handle all of it. Keeping that in mind is keeping me sane.

  1. Hello Jen:

    A very random question for you…I just found your website by typing in “plactic monkey bank”. I have been looking for a specific monkey bank that my father used to fill with change for a family vacation that he always intended for us to take. To make a long story short, he was robbed a few years back and they took the bank and its exactly the bank that you posted. Any chance you’re willing to sell it?

  2. So sorry to hear about the robbery! That’s terrible!

    Alas, the monkey is not mine to sell. It is the childhood bank of my ex and his brother and considered a family treasure.
    Never hurts to ask though, so I’m glad you took the time to.
