In the beginning

So here I am, starting a blog. It's not the type of thing I would normally do- I don't read blogs, and I never learned to type properly. So why would I start now?  I guess I could give you a bit of background of  why and how I got here.  I have been in the jewellery industry for about 16 years now, have always been employed by someone else, and I was pretty content. Either that or too scared to make a change. Maybe a little of both. Well, a couple of months ago, I learned that my job was at risk, due to the GFC, and that gave me a boot in the butt to start making a few changes. So, I have decided to start my own business "Lost Wax" and this blog will be a peek into that process for me. Starting from having no idea about setting up a small business and hopefully ending with some form of success.... or at least me learning something.
