Back to reality.
You see this wasn’t my first attempt at entrepreneurship. This wasn’t even my second. This wasn’t even the first time I loaded up my cart with a hair-ball idea that was going to help me stay home AND provide for my family. I had done this sort of thing before. Jeremy had listened ever so graciously to my plans to start something big many times. Something that was going to make us independent. We were just one great idea away from traveling the world and moving to Costa Rica! But this time, oh this idea. It has taken us closer than no other.
Jeremy at the time worked as a carpenter for a company called Freeman. Ironically, he was far from a “free-man”. He worked 7 days a week for what seemed like pennies not from heaven but hours robbed from our family. Have I mentioned he was also going back to school? I hated his job. He hated his job. But this dream, this little coffee table that we built on our front porch and finished in our dining room was going to free us at last. Or so I hoped....
