Here it is – - our BIG announcement!
That’s right! Starting in just over a month, Rustic Trunk will be my FULL TIME business!
I hear ya. Here’s the scoop!
Just over one year ago, Rustic Trunk began as a hobby – something fun to do on the side of my other two full-time jobs, Office Manager and Communications Coordinator at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church (in Moorhead, MN) and being Mommy to my two awesome little boys, Miles (4) and Simon (18 months).
I know… crazy, right?
I’ve kinda felt like this chick most of the time….
But the thing was – I had this creative energy inside me that was dying to bust out and take on a life of it’s own! And boy did it ever! Rustic Trunk became its very own life force and before I could stop my little rust-loving self, I had completely fallen in love with the whole thing!
I cannot possibly say THANK YOU enough to the amazing people in my support system who helped me get over the complete terror of starting my own business – if you’ve ever quit a perfectly good, stable job and leapt into the unknown of starting your own business, you know about this. This is real, it’s-gonna-eat-me-alive – terror!
And let me just say - I NEVER would have gotten to this point in a million, trillion years without the incredible support from my hubby, Scott! I’m not kidding here folks, this man sweeps me off my feet – he has loaded trailers and trailers full of furniture, and then unloaded and loaded them all over again – he helps me bounce around the “big ideas” – he’s my sounding board, my therapist, my marketing and branding consultant, my financial advisor and – - he SEWS!! I am not even joking. Amazing, right??
So this all boils down to the the ONE person I get to be from here on out…
…rust and chippy paint and all.
THANK YOU, for being along for the ride!
Next up are TWO MORE huge milestones for Rustic Trunk:
1. Our brand new website will be launching NEXT WEEK (horray!!)
2. we’ll soon be introducing you to our AWESOME INTERNS!!
I can’t even handle all the great things going on around here – - I think I need to go take a nap, but I’m WAY too excited! …. I’ve been using a whole lot of capital letters so I must be pretty excited
