A Dream of Ours...
My husband and I have always shared a passion for being entrepreneurs. We are constantly making lists of our 3 year, 5 year and 10 year goals. We are dreamers, but we are also doers.
Even when we were dating in college, broke and had no idea where our future would take us, we were certain we wanted to do something creative. We laugh about all of our "ventures" back in the day, from making homemade soap and me convincing my boss at a local gift shop I worked at to let me sell them, Marcus painting on t-shirts (me "modeling" them) and trying to sell those on Etsy (I WISH I could find those photos), to us pushing his art at local art walks. But that is what we have always loved to do together! We always have, and even though now we are thinking a little bigger picture, those will always be referred to as "the good old days."
Remind me to tell you the time he was this close to us living in a commercial building (That's a stretch, I would more so call it a room! That's how small it was).
One of our BIG goals/dreams is to open an event venue. It's been on our "Goal List" for years now, but it's still there, and I have a feeling it's not going anywhere. I don't know if you've heard, but land (big land) is tough to find in Houston, unfortunately. We've looked at and pondered all different types of locations, just still looking for the perfect spot (whilst hoping our money tree starts sprouting). It doesn't have to be big, just somewhere we can host primarily weddings, and eventually branch out to other events. I love everything about planning and hosting events, from the logistics to the beautiful decor. I just can't get away from it.
Needless to say, we have an ongoing list of things we want to do. I'm happy to say, a couple are in the works and we are pretty excited to give some of our ideas life! More to come on that later.
I am a big believer in setting goals and never letting fear hold you back. If we really want something, we tend to find a way to make it happen, don't we? Move your "Dream" items on that list to the "Goal" section, make a plan and start taking the baby steps to make it happen.
What are some of your goals and dreams? Big or small! I love hearing what others are dreaming of. It's really inspiring!
