There are inevitably moments in business when you face difficult decisions. We feel like we had one of those moments today when we had to turn down an amazing opportunity because it was too short a notice and we were too small an operation. The kind of opportunity that seems crazy to turn down given all the players and money involved, but there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. True, we seem to have an uncanny ability to function without much sleep, but we do need to get some sleep after all. I’m trying not to dwell on it and instead, focus on the work we do have, but the decision is still haunting me. And so the question of the hour is, how to you grow gracefully and smartly? When do you acknowledge that it is, indeed, time?
(oh and the possible Martha Stewart appearance? Pushed back again to early next year. patience patience, we shall see).
Update: Still dwelling. And now I am dreaming of our own kitchen space. I know I know, too fast too soon, but it sometimes feels like even though Mark is working night and day (when he isn’t with the girls), it isn’t enough. The biz is not an easy way to make a living – food never is.
New update: I think we are crazy. The big corporate gift order is back, but it is a bit smaller, so we decided to go for it. Are we crazy? Yes, yes we are. Who needs sleep anyway.
