As you all already know I have my Childcare Business that I do. :) It has grown so much! I am so happy about it. Well now, my sister and I are also getting into another business together. We are Special Occasion Designers! We will be decorating for weddings, and all other parties! I uploaded this picture so you could all see what we will be doing. =)

Well good luck! I wish there was more of a market here for these things. We are very rural and weddings tend to be back yard or park affairs during the warm months and fire halls and church basements in the cold months. No one has the money to hire people. My SIL in NJ sells Partylight and works with a wedding coordinating group. She does great selling her candles and such as center pieces.

Thanks! We already got our first client and we have not even opened our business completely yet. SO excited! :) This is a very good start. We live in a military town so there are lots of weddings and parties here and in a few towns a few hours away. We will be traveling if needed as well. =)

Be sure to keep a photographic portfolio, with your watermark on the pics so others cannot steal your pictures. If Facebook has a buy sell trade group for your community that would be a place to advertize. My future dil does childcare and has a page called Sweet Temptations where she posts pictures of weddings she does, and cookies and things she sells. You will do great. All the best.

It is good to be your own boss! Great to hear your Childcare Business is doing well and now you are having another business on Special Occasion Designers with your sister. This could bring extra income for you! So, I guess you will be more busier from now on having two businesses to take care of. Congratulations! I hope both your businesses will continue to progress and propers in the days ahead...!

Make sure you get good pictures to build your portfolio. A lot of times people don't even have an idea of what they want and they may get great ideas from work you already have done.

I will be very busy. I will have time for both because the wedding one isn't every day or even every weekend so I will have time off to still do my Childcare as well. :)

I am just so happy with what you have achieved! And now another business venture? Oh my! You might have just so little time to be with us in the coming days.... But , it is fine. I know that these things that keep you busy will help your family a lot. Too bad I live so far away. I would have loved to join with that new business of yours. It has also been one of my dreams, but never transpired coz of those "people" around who just don't know anything else to do but to bring you down. Anyway, I am positive that if something is done out of love, it would surely be success. Good Luck!

Thank you jenny! :) Yes, another business venture. I will definitely make time to be here still. I would miss all of you too much not to come here! Aw, if you were here I would love for you to join us! The more the merrier! =)I don't let anyone get to me that says things to bring me down. I realize they are jealous of what I am doing and what I just might accomplish. People said negative things about my Childcare Business too but it is doing SO well!

I wish you good luck in your new business adventure and I am sure that it will be successful. I am hoping that I can get mine started online soon, but lately we have had some issues with our power company (and still are) which kind of makes me afraid to start anything. I am glad that the child care business is also going well.

Wow...congratulations! From the looks of the picture you posted you do really nice work! 2 of the Mom's at my children's school started a business like this. The first year or so was a little bit of a struggle for them but once word got out and people actually started to see their work...the business has skyrocketed! They do awesome work...I automatically thought of them when I saw your pic. Hang in there even if it is slow at first. They did alot of small things at first like at our church and the school...now they are doing weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, birthdays, showers, etc...Good Luck!
