i have dreams of opening a letterpress business. i’ve always wanted to design wedding invitations for a living. but in the past year or so, i’ve fallen in love with letterpress, and it’s now my dream to have a letterpress studio, specializing in invitations.

someday it’ll happen.

I recently started my own biz.  Is it a biz if I’m not making any money 😕

Some day, we would love to own our own landscaping/construction business! I have a family trucking business that could be mine but we want to adapt it so that we have our own niche too! We’ll own the whole company and let the truckers drive truck and have a nifty little landscaping operation on top of it!

My dream is to be my own boss! It has been since I was about 15.. I’m not meant to be controlled or directed by others 😉

@PetalFace:  money. simple as that. i don’t have the money to buy a press (they’re super expensive), or the space to keep it. i’m working on an etsy shop to sell printed/printable invitations. it’ll happen. it’s the letterpress part that’s preventing me from going that direction.

I have so many business ideas but realistically they’ll be ‘on the side’ ventures because the income won’t be guaranteed. Hopefully will be able to start setting up one or two in a few months. 

They’re mostly clothing/product related as opposed to service related.

I’d love to open a cooking school for young children to help them learn about healthy eating. So many young children and even adults have no idea. I love to cook:))

@PetalFace:  I would love to start a handmade gift business. I have always loved putting gifts together. For my bridesmaids I am filling decorative boxs with personalized gifts, and would love to do this for a living. I make handmade soaps, scrubs, scarves, hats, jewelery, knick-knacks, ect.

@PetalFace:  I’m too scared I would fail haha. I don’t think I have picures of most of my stuff since I give it all away but here’s a picture of a sun catcher I made for a friend made with the birthstones of her, her husband and her son.

I would love to own my own floral business/shop.  I have a couple weddings booked for this year so I’m working on it but money is a definite reason I don’t have free standing shop yet.
