My husband owns a screen printing shop called fallout shelter. He is, for the most part, a one man show. In the beginning I pitched in, mostly because I wanted to learn how to screen print, not because his work load demanded it. As my schedule grew busier, I helped less and the most I’ve done in the last few years is help answer emails here and there.
Now, his work load is demanding my attention. I won’t be printing like I did in the old days. I don’t have that sort of time. I’ll be working on the administrative tasks. Accounting, production schedules, pricing, quotes and email will be my territory.
I am a planner and I don’t jump into things without (over) thinking. I’ve been procrastinating devising the best strategy to slowly transition into my new role. A role that is in addition to, not instead of, the many roles I already fill. I see now that there is no smooth transition and for Marcus to get through the next few weeks, I’m just going to have to jump in. I guess we all need to step out of our comfort zone from time to time. I’m pretty excited. I’m just not sure where the extra time is going to come from.
So if I start rambling on about the shop here, you’ll know why.
