It was a year ago that I set a goal to launch my own website. The reasons for it then are different than my reasons for it now, which confirms that things are always changing. No, I’m not announcing today that my website is ready to launch, but as you can see, I launched my new logo design. It’s the first step in making it happen.
I could have waited until everything was in place but there comes a time when you just have to step out in faith and say “here it is” …… and the rest will happen.
When I first launched my Etsy business I was so tied up in knots about having everything figured out before I pressed published. I wanted to make sure that every “i” was dotted and every “t” was crossed. I asked “what if” about everything that could possibly happen before it happened and pushed my opening date back further and further.
The truth is, for you and for me, we have to jump in sooner or later. Our best lessons are learned while we are swimming in the water of our business. We can strategic everything from the shore as much as we want but we eventually need to be brave and jump in.
I launched my logo today. It may seem like a small thing to you but to me it means that bigger and more challenging things are coming. It’s my first step toward launching a larger part of my dream.
Have you been standing on the shore of your dream? Have you been afraid to jump into the water because you feel you’re not be ready? Launching - taking the first step - is the hardest part of the journey. You will never have it completely figured out but that’s okay because no one has it all figured out perfectly!!
So, about my CHALLENGE from last week. I asked you to take a guess as to what font I had chosen for my logo and I gave you 7 designs to choose from. The thing is, no one chose La Veronique, but I have happy news. The three of you who took the time to comment and make a guess EACH receive a discount coupon code to use at Mama Bleu Designs. I am so glad you shared your guesses and expressed your opinions!
So Ann, Susan and Patricia - please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and send me a note with your email address so I can give you the details. Thanks so much in joining me in this impromptu giveaway!
