The spirit of "parentpreneurship" is calling me to shake things up.  I'm turning Chicks & Frogs from a side business to my main business.  I've decided to take a calculated leap of faith.   I'm blending my creative energy and love of making things that bring joy and humor to our lives from a side business to a business (sans the side).  I'll be the first to admit, the jump freaks me out.  The chasm seems wide and the possibility of failure deep.  But when I calculated the risk, the not jumping part was more risky than the actual jump.  So here I am on the other side of the chasm with my intentions and checklist in hand.   Here's what I know so far... 

1) Find my tribe: I've recently joined Mothership Hackermoms to support and be support to other entrepreneurial DIYERs.  Hackermoms is a co-working space designed for and by some amazing people who happen to be parents.  The space and this tribe of parents inspire me to push forward, continue to create, and keep making things happen.   Some offices have water coolers to build community, I have sewing machines, macbooks and sippy bottles surrounding me.   

2) Declare my intentions:  I've written down my goals as a reminder of where I'm headed. 

3) Go Public:  I've posted my intentions publicly on the "Badass" board, joined the Failure Club, and officially shared it with world.  If I fail, my goal is to fail big.  (No point in failing small).  

 If I succeed, the possibilities are endless.   

Here I go...
