This past spring, one of my heroes made a well-meaning but dismissive, offhand comment about my business, and it affected me in an unexpected way.
It's hard to believe, but this week it will have been one year since I launched the Written Paper Goods Etsy shop! And I'm hoping you'll help me celebrate.
In the month or so since completing my #empoweredWritten project, I've been really hustling towards my next big business milestone. But over the last week or so, I've been pretty tempted by a very compelling distraction....
I was 6.5 years old when my sister Olivia was born, and I'm ashamed to say that it took me about a decade to accept that she was going to be a permanent fixture in our family. By the time I finally warmed up to her, she had become an adorable 6th grader who loved drawing and wanted to be an architect when she grew up.
As I write this, Olivia is in a University of Oregon Eugene studio, working towards her Master of Architecture degree.
