2012 Goals for Lauri's Cakes and More

Since coming back to my home area of NW Iowa on September 21st, 2011 I took some time off from my baking business to get things in order with the family. Now things are at a even Steven kind of level and I'm taking classes to make sure my baking business is where I need it to be.

When we first knew we were coming to Spencer last September we took the ONLY place left to rent here in Spencer, it's not what I want to operate life and my baking so one of my goals this year is to find a real house, one that doesn't move when the wind kicks up into high gear. Or when it snowing outside that it doesn't snow inside. It's a home but not a house.

I'm working with a non profit organization called Iowa Lakes Corridor in which the Senior Vice President Brian Dalziel is the person who's been conducting the entrepreneurial training and the training program is the Kauffman Foundation’s FastTrac® program. I've also been doing some research on my business not for competitive reasons but to make sure that I'm doing what I should be doing. 

I've never bought a house before, so I'm going to see if there's a way to do so. In these days and times of riskiness, buying a house is one of them, just like having a small business. I sure do wished I had that "rich uncle" that I could just call up and tell them what my goals are and ask for him. Unfortunately that's not going to happen. 

Recap; getting my business back off the ground doing what ever is possible to get going again, and hopefully being able to buy a house and hopefully get my on demand baking in full swing! Wish me luck!!
