Getting Started – Get Cracking

When starting your own business, there are a gazillion things that you need to do….and once I’d made the decision to start my own business – I got cracking!

I decided on a business name, designed my logo and created my corporate identity; I placed an order for my business cards which I received a day later on Thursday and they look good! (Thank you Minuteman Press in Maple Ridge for the speedy service!).

Also on Thursday I finalized the constant contact email template for my very first client, sent my very first invoice and received immediate payment!!! Thank you Elizabeth, President of Daughter for a Day – Home Care and Support for Seniors. Elizabeth and her team offer a fantastic service – take a look www.daughterforaday.ca

After all the errands and excitement, I grabbed the dog and hit the dyke for a nice long relaxing walk. This is at the bottom of the lane off 132nd, leading up to the dyke in Maple Ridge.

I plan on featuring in my blog scenes captured of Maple Ridge and area, while out on my daily walks with Sally.

Today I published my website http://pushingpaper.net/ and although it’s still a work in progress and has a ways to go, it’s a start! I’m officially open for business and looking for clients!

The weather was gorgeous today and I grabbed my camera and Sally and hit the dyke this afternoon. Below are a couple of photos from along the Alouette River, looking at Golden Ears.

Sally enjoyed herself too!

Now it’s time to watch the Canucks last game of the season – Go Canucks Go!
