Last week we ran to Mesa, our plan was to get up in the morning and get out of there, back to the trailer in Temecula, when Charlene asked if I was fixing dinner…oh, yes, I want to. I love cooking, especially when the recipients are so appreciative. On top of that, Charlene reminded me that she has great internet. That was enough to convince us to stay. A whole day working on high speed internet, a whole day in a real house, a whole day to just work – SOLD!
Callie has been my constant companion today, she is tolerating Piston, but has decided she’s done, I think she’s ready to be in her own space again. Rich and I spent the day making calls and sending emails, then got to start on some posters for the upcoming season. I am not a graphic artist, but when you run a small business, you get to learn how to do things you never intended to.
Over the past year I have learned how to design posters, how to set up a store front, how to sell propane conversion systems and wheels and tires, how to make the racing experience great for first timers, how to get by on a shoestring budget, how to make an event look big, how to manage an event that is big. I’ve learned more about media and impressions and websites than I was ever interested in, now hopefully soon I will get to learn more.
I want to learn to use a CNC cutter to make trophies, I want to weld, I want to design backdrops and host cocktail parties. I want to design t-shirts and make jewelry, I want to demo our products. Everyday is a learning experience, I just have to be open to that education. What education should you be open to?
