Entrepreneurship Syndrome

Queasy stomach, stopping to take quick breaths now and then so I don’t pass out, worrying about who likes what and what I can do differently, and how I spoke to an employee and how I can entice more customers through the door, and my neck hurts from all the time spent at a desk, and on and on it goes.

Yes, I have Entrepreneurship Syndrome.  It’s a hereditary disease inherited from my father.  He has suffered greatly but is in remission at the moment.  There is no known cure, but there are measures that can be taken to improve quality of life:

  • One of those measures relies heavily on the community in which an affected person resides.  Community support is vital.  Family, friends, acquaintances, strangers, all important.
  • Another coping method is to write silly blog posts and keep having fun through the tough times.
  • Dory said it best.  I just have to keep on swimming.  Keep trying my best to make a success of my old and new business.  Every day is a new start and comes with new opportunities.  Let’s go see what today will bring…

The Times they are a Changin’

Today not only marks a change in the clocks (I’m an hour early with everything today) but a change in our hours of operation at the café.  Starting today, our hours are:

10am to 8pm Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
And until midnight on Friday nights


The studio’s hours remain the same as usual: 10 to 6 except Wednesdays, and until 9 on Friday nights.


Bargain Alert

I’ve been thinking about how to make a better Christmas shopping experience at Norton’s Cove Studio for my valued followers. Seems to me that most people I know have their holiday shopping done by the time December rolls around, and so my plan to offer a 25% discount during December (as has been the case for the past few years) isn’t terribly useful to anyone except last minute shoppers.

So this year, I’ve decided to implement the discount during the month of November to reward those who are on top of their game! 🎄

If you’re on my subscribers list, you’ll get the information you need to apply your discount online or in-store with your newsletter on November 1st.

Happy shopping!
