September always brings all kinds of changes for me. Maybe because it is my birthday month, may be it is just a coincidence but it always brings new challenges and a new perspective in life. Just to give you a couple of examples, I found out I was pregnant for the first time (years ago) in September, I started SImple Matters two years ago in September.
September 2011 was not the exception. One of the things that happened is that I decided to embark in a new business venture, I am not ready to give details but let’s just say that the idea snowballed and it brought a WHOLE new set of issues. Because of the project I am working on and because of Simple Matters growth, we decided that leasing a building would be the next step. The day after we decided that while I was driving back home from taking Lola to school I saw a “for lease” sign outside a warehouse/office building. I am big on “signs” and this one was bright and yellow and huge so it could not be missed. I thought about it for about 2 seconds and I called to get some info.
Long story short, two days later my husband and I were signing the lease. I did call several other places and looked around but this place was perfect. It has two offices in the front, a LARGE storage/clean work area and a huge garage area in the back. It also has a tiny break room. It is not fancy and it is not a retail space (which is a good thing because I didn’t want one) but it does give me a very comfortable and convenient place to work and THAT was the whole point.
We had to do some sheetrock and electrical work to accommodate our needs. Since we were already paying rent, it had to happen fast. Thank God for friends in the business! Here are a few pictures of our new shop.
I have been working here for almost three weeks and I love it! I have plenty of room to work and move around plus I have ALL my stuff in one place. It is still quite an emotional rollercoaster. Sometimes I feel like it was the best decision ever, some others I feel like I am in waaaaaay over my head. Only time will tell.
