Business is one thing

So I am in business…or will be very shortly. To me business is one thing, but figuring out you can be in business, or be an inventor, or a hairstylist, or whatever you dream is is the important thing here.

I, as noted in earlier blogs, have been fulfilled through the traditional things–school, career, family, motherhood. A pretty straight path (with a few wild careenings off path from time to time), but overall fairly straightforward. My dad likes to brag to his friends, “She did it in the right order–School, Job, Husband, THEN kid.”

I’m glad he’s pleased. But am I? Sure. Sorta.

While my mom always encouraged me to be a Renaissance woman (thus my corporate name Da Vinci FML, LLC–get it? Renaissance woman? haha, clever) she is also super conservative, talking to me now as an adult about being careful about the job (I am, I am…I do my job to the highest standards only) and wondering mostly why my friends and I are so unsatisfied and why we want something of our own. “When I worked, I just did what I had to and got my paycheck. I didn’t think about being happy.”

Sorry mommy, that’s not gonna get it for this Renaissance chick. I need more. Something of my own. And I’ve got it/am getting it.

The thing to know is that you can have what you want, get what you want, be who you want…if you want to.

Much love,

Alissa
