getting my ducks in a row

Beyond the several projects I have going on currently, I have decided the time is right to launch my business. My dream is to start my own copywriting + PR firm, so that's exactly what I'll be doing come late summer/early fall.

This business is something I've been contemplating for a couple of years now. But I know the time commitment that comes with running a business, the investment I will have to make, and in knowing that, I've given myself some time to prepare, if you will.

I've read tons of business books and plan to plow through a few more before the summer is through. Most recently I've read The Boss of You and Making Work at Home Work, both of which I highly recommend.

So now it's all about getting my ducks in a row. The back bedroom must be transformed from storage room to office. I've got to figure out a work schedule that is manageable. Legal docs must be figured out, contracts created, and the list goes on.

It's all very exciting but a little scary too. My biggest worry is how I'm going to juggle motherhood with running a business. Any business owners out there that have advice for me I'm all ears!

I'd also love to hear any other book reccomendations and/or resources. Thanks!
