Well not much to report on the blog front this week. I’ve been busy getting ready for my India Trip. There’s a lot of preparation involved leaving your business. It’s rather stressful as well. I’m fortunate in that my parents are visiting and will also help with the business while I’m gone. That will help to alleviate some of the stress. This will also be a nice little test to see if my employees can handle running the business while I’m gone. Hopefully I’ve trained them well.
I’ll try and take a lot of pictures to share in India. I’m also interested in learning about the small business lifestyle in India. Hopefully I can gain some insight and even learn some helpful tips while there.
