I'm normally not much of a risk taker, either in business or my personal life. Once in awhile I venture out of my comfort zone, like the time I chose to go to a college where I didn't know ANY of the other students. I came away from that experience with lots of wonderful friends who I probably wouldn't have bothered to meet if I'd gone somewhere with people I already knew. But too often, I find myself sticking with what's safe, not really taking any chances because I feel comfortable where I am, and I'm worried that if I fail the risk won't seem worth it.
So for once I decided to hold on to my fortune to remind me to get out of the proverbial harbor once in awhile, whether it's with my business or in my personal life.
See? I said I'd have this one posted within the week! I still can't promise I won't make one for myself though!
By the way, I'm participating in Etsy's Christmas in July sale. Everything in my shop is buy one, get one half off, plus I'm offering free shipping on any order of $20 or more! I've added and handful of new items and am hoping to add a few more during the course of the week! :-)
