When we made the "big announcement" that Wolf & Cub brick and mortar was a reality on Facebook, someone (who knows me and my past business ventures) said "Can't keep a true entrepreneur down." and man, that is the truth. There is something so rewarding for me about putting everything I've got into something I know is mine. I've taken two years off from the grind of owning a business (even though I never reallllly stopped because that entire time I was happily working on building Wolf & Cub). It wears on you. It's been good for me to step back and reconnect with other parts of my life instead of focusing on a business. I've had a nice little break from it all but I am beyond ready to make another go of it. I know the next few months aren't going to be easy. It's going to be late nights and early mornings all while Varick and I continue working at our full time jobs. But it's going to be good and refreshing and rewarding and energizing.
So- here I am this Sunday morning, I've been up since 6:30 a.m. and it feels good. I woke up and immediately started rattling off the todo list in my head. (Check out the artist application that went live this morning!) There's a purpose for me getting up and wanting to work hard beyond the grind of the 8 to 5 workday. We are off soon to do some pickin' and then head to the shop with the goal of finishing the painting of the walls completely today.
