This napkin represents the start of my business, literally. I had a meeting 2 years ago at a coffee shop to chat with a realtor about buying a place to start my framing business. By the end of the meeting I found the place I wanted to buy and signed the contract.
I worked in the corporate world for 20 years and was through with the way they treated me all of those years and wanted to pursue my real passion. I love art and when I was a kid my grandparents would teach me how to frame and matte pictures. I loved it. Art is a passion of mine and I knew I could create a framing business with the skills and knowledge I had received. I moved out of the big city and moved to small town in Virginia. I wouldn’t change anything about my decision to start my own business for anything. The rat race is not worth it and all the material things that people focus on these days are just a joke. If you’re doing what you love then you’re wasting precious time that you can’t get back. Stop wishing and make it happen.
I Am A Mom and Pop.
