The Busy Bean

Ready for Change

Remember last week when I said I would introduce Penny this week? Or was that two weeks ago and I said I’d introduce her last week…?

As you can tell, I haven’t introduced her yet. See, my time is crazy. I want this business running so I can quit my job and work at home. But how do you get a business up and running when you have a full-time job with a three hour daily commute? I’m here to tell you that it’s nearly impossible. Especially if you value sleep as much as I do.

What’s in a name

The other day I was at the bank setting up my business account (so crazy, scary, official) and Justin-the-awesome-banker-who-helped-me asked how I came up with my name. (Side note: I don’t know if Justin-the-awesome-banker-who-helped-me gets any kind of perk for being awesome, but he should. Seriously, if you’ve got a small business and have banking needs in the Draper, UT area, head over to see him at Chase.) Anyway, I decided to share here the story of why “The Busy Bean.”

What I do

I craft. It’s what I do. I love a good project (yes sister, you can insert a joke about why I married my husband here).

Luckily, my husband understands my love of projects and is supporting my decision to make that my career. So, here I’ll share my journey of starting my own business from home so I can do what I love with those I love. This venture will (soon) allow me to stay home to raise our daughters.
