So for those of you who know me or follow the blog or page, you know that I have been flat out for the last 5 weeks getting my new business ready to open.
It has been a labour (intensive!) of love and a learning curve in all matters! And I am not sure how or what I expected to feel after opening the doors.................
I suppose I hoped to stand back and feel proud of what I accomplished, and in moments I do.
I think I wanted to feel relieved that the "hard graft" was done.....but now the hard work really starts so, uh no.
I maybe even wanted to feel a rush of excitement and energy, but honestly I am just tired.
All that said, the joy of being back teaching is amazing!! It is the reason why I wanted to jump with both feet into this project. I LOVE TEACHING CLASSES! I LOVE SEEING PEOPLE FEEL BETTER! It is 100% why I do what I do. I had 3 super classes on my very first day and loved every minute of them, yes folks even the very early 6.45am!!!
We had a good reception on Saturday too. I had some amazing support from a super team of local (and not so local) ladies who are all getting involved in helping me make the Studio a one stop shop for all things health and wellness.
So after a long over due rest day, straight back into the planning and promoting, rehearsing and reworking, the phone calls, emails and messages!
The biggest problem I can see with running my own business is that there will be no let up for a while. There is a need for me to continue to graft and push so that I make this a success.
So definitely, no calm after the storm!!! Just a gentle gale blowing me forward....but this time it for me, and I believe that something wonderful is about to happen xx
