For anyone who has ever started a small business or has at least looking into it, you’ll agree that there is lots involved. Now depending where you want to take your business, will determine your level of risk, time and of course $$$. I once read somewhere that the definition of an entrepreneur was one who starts a business with the purpose of growing it to a level of a viable commodity. In other words, you grow your company large enough to where it is worth something to a wealthy suitor and they then purchase it from you. Not a bad deal I guess, if that’s your goal. Then of course there have been some deals made along these lines where the owner never truly gives up control, just most of it. Another way to go if you still want to keep the company heading in a certain direction.
Because Stick Me Designs is still a baby in the business world, we have not really investigated how these options could benefit us as a company. As the owner, I see this as my ‘business baby’, I puffed life into it’s little lungs, and I’ve been giving it direction, as to how to grow and mature. But from the response and feedback we’ve received thus far, it looks like that with the right network, capital and direction Stick Me Designs could very well be on to something…big. And this…is a good thing. I’m a mother of two young boys and we have not had to send them to daycare yet, and I’d like to keep it that way, till they’re ready for school.
And since my husband is active duty military our lives are so up and down that having a traditional full time job, just doesn’t fit into our ‘schedules’. I’m thankful that with my company that I could possibly comfortably stay home with my sons, and see a profit eventually from my labors. I’m always looking for other ways to bring in income to benefit my family, and that’s another quest that continues.
But as we study how to grow SMD, we’ll look to branching out to grow out network, increase our brand awarness and keep the WOM buzz alive and well. We’re still new to this whole business gig, and pray that with grace we’ll find our way to grow the company and take it to heights that we’ve dreamt of. We always welcome questions and comments and invite anyone looking to invest in a company with serious growth potential to give us a call or email us with your ideas.
