Today we spent 2 hours with the electrician discussing and approving where all of the electrical and computer boxes and switches will go. This wasn’t just sitting around a table with a plan in front of us. This was in the actual space, walking from room to room. I’m not embarrassed to say that it super cool and exciting to be at this stage.
Taking the time to write this blog allows us to sit back and take stock of what we have accomplished. The end of January is nearing and it’s only been about 3 weeks since we started demolition and construction.
While the contractor and the sub-contractors are busy creating the physical space, we are busy figuring out everything else. Website, employees, point of sale software and merchant processing vendor. We spent a few hours this week working Kevin from Rusted Nail Salvage who is going to design and build our front desk and light fixture.
There is so much more, but every day we check something off and move onto the next item.
As an endurance athlete, I spend a lot of months training for just one race. And don’t get me wrong, race day is always what it’s cracked up to be. But, it’s just one day. Whether is 4 hours, 6 hours or 15 hours, it’s just one day. Training day in and day out is where I spend most of my time. I enjoy the training. I enjoy pushing myself each day, making sure I get the most out of each session.
Building this business with Michele is similar. While having a business that will be open and successful is not just one day, it is important to enjoy the journey that will get us there. Every day I learn something new and I know that with more hard work, we will bring our vision of Imagine Float to life.
Thanks for joining us on this journey.
