Domestic Goddess Turns Entrepreneur Too?


Ok first of all? That post title almost gave me a heart attack.

But now that I am over the shock-turned-disbelief-turned-disappointment that you continue to avoid being bitten by the wedding bug, I have to say I am so proud of you! You go, girl! You are such the budding entrepreneur!

Now that I have survived my MBA program for over a month (hard to believe, considering the almost weekly breakdowns I have been having - I don't know what I would do without the Lawyer! For reals.) I have to say that I am more and more tempted by the thought of starting my own biz. Or a bunch of bizzes, like you are creating! 

Do we have any other DomestiPreneurs out there??? If you're out there, tell us about your fabulous business!

Of course I have no idea what I would want to do. I wish I had the gumption to be a wedding planner - I could specialize in planning weddings on one side of the pond from the other! Now there's a niche, right? Of course, not that I have been able to do much of my own wedding planning lately - but that's fodder for another post. Or lack thereof.

But I love the idea of being my own boss, and starting up a business around something I'm truly passionate about. Going to work should be FUN, right? Not to mention the fact that I want to be able to make my own schedule so that I have time to raise Lawyer Jr. and his little sister, DomestiGirl.  

There are so many amazing, enterprising women out there. Including you, Sue! I think I might 
just have to jump on the bandwagon...

Seriously, entreprenurship is something I've wanted for a long time! Don't think it will happen any time soon, but I definitely want to own my own business some day. My Dad does and it just seems such an amazing idea.

Regtardless, I'd always tended to lean my entreprenurial ideas towards the health/fitness side of things because I love that industry. At the same time, I'm thinking event planning or travel/tourism (sport tourism maybe?) are two areas I really love too.

Needless to say, I'm SO on the bandwagon with you girls.

BTW Jen, I totally want to pick your brain about MBA-ness sometime soon. It's always been a plan of mine so first-hand knowledge would be awesome.

I'm starting a wedding photography business and let me tell you- it's scary!! I just got out of art school, am working at a vet part time, but using most of my time to start this baby up. But you think it will cost $ but it costs $$$..that's how it is with everything. And everything takes sooo much time. But I secretly love it to pieces. I love being able to document people's weddings and see their happy faces when they get their photographs. It's so amazing.
