New Adventure: Small Business Owner

“If you aren't nervous about your passion, you aren't passionate about it.”

-Bobby Flay

I feel like we're best friends so, I'm going to be honest. I'm nervous, stressed, terrified, and at the same time excited about expanding my business. Well, it's too late to turn back because I've filed the paperwork and now I'm officially a small business owner. Gulp. I keep telling myself, being nervous about this new adventure means I care and that's normal. 

The Fort Worth Business Assistance Center has been a huge help. I attended their small business workshop. I'll probably I need to go back and attend the tax workshop. They offer free counseling, so I'll be there for sure. I also asked some old colleagues for advice, (you know who you are: THANK YOU). 

Now operating as... 
Dominique Anderson - Video and Photography Services.
I want to focus primarily on video services, but I will continue to take photographs for events and I might take a few portrait sessions too (a big maybe). 
I will continue working my day job, but now I'll have to be a super-ninja-mom and balance a small business too. I see a lot of nights and weekends of editing in my future. Whew, it already sounds exhausting. Thanks friends and family, in advance for your support. Love you! 

Stay tune, for a very exciting year.
It's not work, it's play.
