Well there you have it! There are a lot of happy people right now, and all because of me. 2011 was quite a year, I have to say.
I started the year by losing my job from restructuring. As you know, living in a city with a high unemployment rate can be depressing, as it was for me for a few months. After a few months of being down I decided to sell the few monsters I made in 2008 on Etsy, and noticed how great the response was, I started making more monsters for real. In June/July I decided I wanted to start my own business selling monsters. If I can't find a job, I'll create a job! I had nothing to lose anyway. I was already unemployed for 5 months (having only worked 3 weeks during that time), and on employment insurance. After some hard work with my business summary, I got accepted into a government entrepreneurship program, and now I'm here, working to make this work! 2011 has been a bumpy time, but a good year. :-) My advice? If you want to start your own business, don't wait until it's convenient, just do it!
Have a great 2012! I'd love to hear how your past year was! :)
