SBQ - First one for 2007


SBQ is back! And the first question for 2007:
Do you dream of running your own LNS/ONS? If so, tell us about your dream. If not, tell us about your cross stitch dream… maybe you dream of designing, dyeing your own floss or fabric, etc.
Yes, I do dream of owning my own LNS/ONS. In fact, last summer I was a bank loan away from acheiving that dream; I was going to buy an ONS from someone wanting to retire. Unfortunatly, someone else got their money before I could. No hard feeling though. So I'm still working my regular job and when hubby can get enough saved up for me to retire, I'll start looking into starting my own again.
Unless someone has an ONS or LNS that they would like to retire from and sell to me!
Most people want to start something of their own from scratch; I'm not sure I'd know how to even do that. You see, my whole career is based on looking at a company's business/procedures and determining what is not woprking and how to improve upon it. That is why I have no problem taking over someone else's business.

I think that is a fabulous skill to have and definitely lends itself to taking over someone else's business. I'm sure you will find the perfect opportunity for you when the time is right. :)

I feel the same way about my LNS....I find myself wondering what would happen if I'm still in the area when the owner decides to sell/retire.....
