Last year, when I sat down to write my first blog entry, I had no idea how must of my life it would become. As my life has unfolded over the last year, I find myself noticing things I never would have noticed; seeing the humor in things I would have otherwise glossed over; and exposing depths of my emotions that I had previously kept well hidden. The benefit has been two fold: I’ve touched people’s lives, and perfect strangers have become some of my strongest supporters. While I’m not where I want to be, I think we’re off to a great start.
I feel like I’m on to something with DPF, but I’ll be honest, I’m horrible at follow through. I really want to create a show, and we have hours and hours of footage, but I just can’t figure out how to make it happen. I want to package and market DPF Spice mixes (Jake and I have at least 10 that are just kick ass). I want to develop my Scrummy Kits (Party Planning Kits – complete with menu and decor). I want to create a table decor line. I want to patent and really, really, really pursue getting my drink tags out to boutique stores. And I’d love to see my jams hit the market. However, I have no idea how to get things moving. I have all these things that are pretty damn unique and special, but no idea how to make the next step happen. I have the product, I just need the motivation and direction, I guess. I need someone to help me see through the fog and see that it could actually work. Right now, I just have a hard time with the nitty-gritty. I never really thought of myself as having the artist complex, but maybe that’s what it is. I see numbers or an excel sheet, and my brain just completely shuts down. But give me a party of 200 people to cook and decor to plan for, and I’m a force to be reckoned with!
So………I’m going to TRY to get at least one thing done…not sure if I’ll be able to get through the business side enough to see it to completion, but I think I might be able to manage to make a cookbook of DPF recipes. Would anyone be interested or would I just be yet another blogger trying to figure out a way to touch the world?
