I had a great run and met many wonderful people in the years that I ran Elizabeth Chandler Designs and the Upstate Sewing & Craft Club. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.
I told myself that if my business grew by a certain percentage each year, then I would keep at it. The business certainly grew, but not a rate that provided me with the revenue and free time necessary to properly sustain my home life. Good times do not pay the bills, so I am headed on to the next chapter of my life.
Entrepreneurship was a wild ride and I feel like a different person now than I was when I started. I truly cherish all of the experiences and memories that my colleagues, friends, and customers have shared with me.
There was so much actual love shared in my little sewing studio and I will remember it and my partners forever. I wish you all the best, and wish me luck with the next great adventure!
