Yesterday was my 15th year in business!

Since I’m currently on my maternity leave (see #12 below) I put together a quick, fun list to celebrate this accomplishment.

  1. Feeling a sense of accomplishment
  2. Meeting fellow small biz owners (especially fellow moms in business)
  3. Being challenged every day
  4. Leaving early to hang out with my kiddos
  5. Marketing my business (I have a passion for marketing)
  6. Always learning something new
  7. Making my own work schedule
  8. Working on a variety of projects
  9. Making any day “Bring Your Kids to Work” day (see above)
  10. Spending time on creative side projects (and my second business, typebaby)
  11. Developing long-term relationships (and friendships) with clients
  12. Being able to take maternity leave with both of my children
  13. Creating a work-life balance
  14. Carrying on a family tradition of self-employment
  15. Helping organizations grow and share their message
