I've been doing mostly non-booksellery things the last few weeks, including holiday stuff, writing, and putting in a floor in our kitchen.
However, I haven't been entirely inactive. Last Thursday, I went to an info session at the Center for Women & Enterprise to get an idea of the kinds of classes they offer. I've just signed up for another class that runs this Wednesday night, "Steps to Starting a Business."
It was described as a two-hour course that helps potential businesswomen get started, a kind of overview of things you'll need to take into consideration and what sorts of planning to be, well, planning.
I'm pretty excited about it. The instructor who led the info session seemed to know her stuff and was enthusiastic about the organization. I will most likely be signing up for other courses that they offer, which are longer sessions and spread out over multiple weeks. They run courses in semester-like cycles, so I believe there will be new classes beginning in January or February. Looks like I decided to get off my ass at the right time.
More to come...
