At A Crossroads…
- by Scott
But what is not alleviated is the fact that I am at a crossroads. Savings have dwindled down, and while my business is growing, it’s not yet where it needs to be to fully support us. It’s a bittersweet feeling knowing that the business has grown, but not enough. Sure, I could blame some of that on the economy, but in the end it doesn’t matter, because at the crossroads we stand.

That's just me.
I was very encouraged by the following statement when my business was not getting clients, and again when I thought I may lose my job:"Do not mistake your Provider with your employer" (which could be changed to "your business" or some other applicable term).May God continue to bless and keep you! ~Luke
