Fall Possibilities


This is my favorite time of year. I love the transition from summer to fall - the cool weather, the fall colors - I love it all. It's also the time of year that I start to get excited about possibilities. It's probably because growing up this was "back to school" time - the beginning of a new school year. It was the time to make declarations about how my life would be over the next nine months or so. I guess I just never grew out of that. I tend to make more plans and resolutions as fall arrives than I do at the promise of a new year. This fall I plan to move full steam ahead on the next phase of my life, my dream of opening an upscale plus-size clothing boutique. Today, I took one step closer to my dream!

Over the summer I was accepted into the Small Business Legal Clinic at Western New England University and today I had my first meeting with the team of law students that will help me with my business. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect but I was greeted by two very sharp, very nice, and very knowledgeable third year law students. I left the meeting feeling overwhelmed initially. They raised a lot of legitimate concerns and gave me a lot to think about. I started to get a feeling of dread... could I really make this happen? Of course I can. That fleeting moment of doubt was soon replaced by sheer excitement. I'm ready to go! Yay for possibilities!
