I haven't posted in awhile but I read back on those posts and I see how I was struggling with the balance of work and home. I was not happy and so I left my corporate job with a public firm. I opened the doors to my own practice with a partner who does all the clerical duties. As soon as we signed the lease for 12 mos in January we felt the twinge of fear. We made a commitment to stick it out one year knowing we may have to carry the business.
We are now 8 mos. running. We made it through our 1st tax season. Since then we've picked up some very fine clients. They are extrodinarily happy with our service. We have a strong business plan and we give personal service our clients can understand. This week alone we have picked up 2 new clients that a very good accounts. We have also have another large account waiting for me to finish the current one I've had. Today I was told by one of the owners of a company whom I just finished the work for tell me I was a gem of a find for them and one of the best things to happen to their company.
We have to be doing something write for that to happen. Today I finally lost that fear of not being able to make it. We started a business in the middle of one of the worst recessions. We have great faith in small businesses. They fuel the economy as often you find those businesses that give an honest service for an honest pay. It's a formula that will always work. So there is no longer a knot in stomach from the fear of not making it work. It is working out wonderfully.
