What a difference a year makes!

January 5th was the 1 year anniversary of our office. Wow. It has been a crazy year. I found some things to be easier than I expected, others more difficult. The learning curve has been huge. I didn't realize how much I didn't know until hit in the face with it. (A business license? Setting up payroll? Becoming a corporation? An S corp or a C corp? How much vaccine do I order at a time?) And it has all been worth it.

In fact, I felt like a first time Mom, with our office as the new baby. And look how much she has grown!


The above was our chart rack at the end of our first week.



And look at it now! In fact, we almost need to add another one. We are quickly building a respectable reputation in the community, even weathering the H1N1 storm.

Looking forward to another great year!

That's so wonderful! Congratulations to you and your husband! I love that you took a picture of the file cabinet the first week and then now. That's so neat! You must be so proud! I can't imagine all of the work with starting a new business.
