Shop Diaries #something

I have got the keys to the shop in my hot little hands. Wheeeeeee!

It lived up to my expectations of gorgeous potential when I went in today. The kids had a great time running around making echoes. In fact, they seem to spend their whole days making loud noises. Holidays.

I went to a great business seminar last night. Rod Drury talked about Xero, and how the new reconciling function is like Tetris, and it really is. I take a whole new pleasure in doing accounts these days.

I think the best thing about these seminars is chatting to other people. Networking doesn't need to be about getting business contacts who will help you or buy your product, it can just be about meeting people who inspire you to keep going. I met a jolly nice chap who is launching a great first aid(e) product in November - it is called Aide, and his process and logic was so interesting.

Oops. My blog is going all business. Um, Jessica Simpson. There, I've lowered the tone.

Even I like networking at things like that and I'm about as far from a business woman as you can get. I think it's just because I like to get excited about other people's dreams (hence excitement at shop) - it's a terribly geeky habit of mine.
Ah well.
Yay for keys in hand.
