December 31, 2009 was the last day of my "real" job. Going forward, I am pursuing olliegraphic as a full-time venture. And I'm thrilled. Or terrified, depending on when you ask me.
I did not make this decision lightly. I've been running the line for over a year now on nights and weekends. After a lot of discussion, penny pinching, number crunching, hair pulling, forehead slapping and working long looong hours into the night, Mr. Ollie (I need to come up with a better pseudonym for him...) and I decided that it was time to make a real go of this thing.
I'm a business owner. (Gulp.) Wish me luck.
