Here we go…

It’s official, Jake and I signed the lease today. Construction starts tomorrow. I still can’t believe this dream is actually coming true.

It’s certainly going to be a challenge to start a new business while raising our 15 month old son Levi. I’m determined to try and keep a “normal” schedule for him and spend mornings with him and put him to bed at night. I’m sure our “plan” will change over and over as we learn what life is like as small business owners and new parents.

I hope to share stories from our journey here, on this blog, as a resource for others looking to start a family business of their own.

Time to get to work!

Almost there!

We’re getting really close to signing the lease for EscoGelato.  I’m excited and am feeling really inspired. I’m sure there are going to be many challenges ahead, but this has been a dream for a really long time and I can’t believe I’m lucky enough to make a go of it. Our plans are currently under review with the health department and we are working though their requirements. It’s really not as scary as I thought it would be. IN the meantime there’s still lots to do including setting up the website (as you can see that’s what I’m doing now). I’ve built the site using WordPress. (Thanks for the recommendation Dave!) I really like the way it works.
