NEED ADVICE. small girl. BIG DREAMS 2

Postby Nadya » Thu, 08 Apr 2010 2:51 pm

Hi Everyone!!

I just came back from a 2 weeks vacation to the Phillipines. It was such a nice getaway! Beautiful beach, beautiful people! Stung by jellyfish, step onto a pig's poo, near drown while helmet diving in Boracay.. It was such a nice experience!

Ok, ok,I know what you're thinking, "only 5 months in the business and im already taking a vacation?" Well, truth to be told.

I was fined and compound. Sadly, it was brought to court. It was an honest mistake. We (me n my sister we are working closely together now but she have a day job) have to stop all operations and cease all order. Come on! We are no criminal! We just wanted to set up our own business! We're young and inexperience and still have lots to learn..!!

It was a month of sadness and depression. I was in a middle of a crossroad. Employer or employee?? I drowned myself in self-pity everyday.

In retrospect, im glad it happen. It was god way of telling us that this not the right way to do it. Now that i manage to bring myself together. We're going to come back. The right way, the legal way. From a scratch!

Register a whole new name, new websites, new bank account and most important of all, a proper kitchen!!
But of course we need all the help we can get. Grants/loans,advises! We need to get our business plan ready. I dont know how we're going to do it, but we ARE Going to do it! i need your blessings.

Till the next post
Nadya

P/S: Do let me know if there's any free motivational talk or seminars for young entrepenuer!! I need to be motivated! Either that or a kick start on the arse!

A kick on the arse is more likely! :lol: There are many that try it on, knowing damn well what they are doing, so they deserve what they get, and to be honest if the fine isn't sever enough, they will just keep on breaking the rules.
