WOW! Blessing? More like a MIRACLE from God. You deserve it and congratulations!
Fantabulous! Wishing you years and years of continued success!
the god lord is good
That is just so wonderful!!! I am so excited for you! I have family all over GA, I grew up in Marietta - Let us know the name of your shop when you get it all finalized!
Congratulations. I am soooo happy for you!!!!
Congratulations!!! Wishing you all the best!
Wow, I must say that is truly a blessing. It's amazing how things work out in the least expected ways. Congratulations!!!!!!!
I think I'm drooling along w/ you--How very wonderful! It helps to know that dreams do come true! Congrats and best wishes w/ everything!
Yes, dreams DO come true. Thank you all for your well wishes.. I am getting a bit nervous. I hope I didn't bite off more than I can chew!
I mean you may need to hire someone, and be open for new ideas and different solutions, it's a risk and a gamble and we are all betting on you!!!
I am in a similar valley of decision. I have people pummeling me with cake orders that I am constantly turning down. I mean an average of 3-4 a month plus someone in the business asking me if I opened yet so they can send me business. I have everything to open a place except a triple sink and the location. My husband is not an entrepreneur but he would help out.
I mean how deep is my burnout? Just the idea of even doing some things for charity and putting a couple things 'on the books' makes me uncomfortable.
On one hand it's silly not to do what I'm good at. On the other it's so nice to not have my life all tied up and tied down in other people's celebrations.
Geez I need therapy!
CONGRATULATIONS I am crying when I read yuor post, cry of joy, CONGRATULATIONS again and good luck
Congrats!!!! Amazing opportunity. Best of Luck!
K8memphis, I have an extra triple sink that I have been holding on to for when I got my business, now I don't need it. Come on down to atlanta and throw it in the back of a truck and you can have it. Help is no problem. I am keeping an employee and a half. Plus I have my own posse when I need them.
What are the dimensions??
There's a place I can rent for only $450 a month! The 90" sinks would not fit.
(I have 4 mixers and two commercial ovens)
I mean it seems as if God is literally banging me over the head, shaking me by the shoulders to do this.
I could probably buy one (sink) cheaper than to get all the way to Atlanta--but ironically I have been half planning a trip to Atlanta to the Gift Show--I'm in retail.
Wow, congratulations! God is good. All the time.
I am so happy for you. Do post pics of your shop when you can. It is truly a blessing.
I have been thinking about you..... How are things coming along?
OMG!!! You must be in heaven! Congratulations and the best of luck in your new place!!!
God is good all the time Congratulation and best wishes on your new shop way to go girl.
God send this to you in a especial package, congratulations!!!!
Thank you all for your wonderful comments. I am truly blessed!
It has been hectic to say the least. This past weekend, we had 9 wedding cakes plus a 350 serving cake for Macy's 150th birthday. Next week we have 10 or 11, can't remember.
My head was ready to explode with all the "stuff" licenses, insurance, new vehicles, inspections...yada, yada. yada. But the past 2 days I have felt like I am getting a grip. I only spent 8 hours there today and we don't work on Monday!
I am very happy and very tired but hey, that is what it is all about.
We have only gotten a little bit done in decorating because of all the cakes. I have more to do in this main greeting room, but this is the begining....sorry for the non-clarity, my camera was having a bad day.
Will post more as I get things done.
Thanks again for all your support, God is good!
OK, well I guess CC didn't like my pics, I am putting them in my photos.
Congratulations and good luck!
Congruations cakequeen50. What is the name of your business. Your located no far from me. I live in Rome, Ga. Next time in Marietta maybe I can stop in for a visit to see how things are going. I wish you the very best. I hope for that some day, but I'm sure that will be a ways down the road. Good luck.
wow that is great, I wish you all the best - I have friends in Marietta, I'd love to know where your shop is located to refer you and maybe stop by if I visit...great news...congratulations!
Congratulations! God has truly blessed you. Although I do not know you, I am truly excited for you! Dreams really can come true!
Congratulations! You are on your way! Those big empty walls are begging for some GIANT cake photos.
I am so happy for you! Congratulations!!
Awesome!! I'm so happy it's going well for you!
