Every single day for the past couple of weeks have been a whole lot of planning, and researching, and more planning, and setting up, and experimenting, and more researching, and lots and lots of reading and configuring things to get our start up business going.
Today, we finally got our official business email addresses AND business bank accounts set up! I don't know why but this got me super excited. Running the latest version of Office, having Outlook all set up with my new business email address... having access to bank accounts specifically for running the business and incoming transactions in the future... I feel like we can do a mini celebration tonight. We are taking positive steps towards launching this business, and things will continue to progress. One step at a time!

You know, they say blogging is a really good habit as it helps with your thought processes... I must say, ever since I started blogging again it has really helped me to maintain focus in what I am doing and not be distracted, or be discouraged. Staying motivated is so important!
