Full time . . .Part Time?!?!?!

For days I have been pondering the idea of leaving my 9 to 5, and focusing on my business full time. I find myself in deep thought, thinking of all the risk involved and asking myself can we as a family afford to leave it behind. On some days, I say yes, of course I can! Especially on those days when my girls are sick, or I've failed to make an appointment because I'm exhausted from my day job. Its on those days when it takes little thought to leave and more to stay.
I have to be honest, there has definitely been moments when I've day dreamed of saying goodbye. Its not that I hate my job, its just that I see myself doing so much more with my time. . . Doing something I enjoy. Of course I know there's so much more to leaving my structured day job than just leaving. I'm mentally prepared to work longer hours and everything else to make my business work. Winning the lottery would be great. . . Maybe I should play more often :) Anyway, Its definetly a thought in progress. What are your thought?

Social Networking

O.K. So as the days pass and I surf the wonderful web, I find myself a bit overwhelmed of all the social networking sites available. Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, Linked, mycraft and many others, all in an effort to help promote businesses and network within your industry. The idea of social networking . . . .Awsome, the feeling I get when looking at all those sites . . .Overwhelmed! Why Can't I choose just one?!?!?!?
Well, the truth is, I can and I will! I've found that with trying to maintain so many sites, I've had little time to work on my craft. My goal . . .well it's to clip a few ends and to keep only a few under my belt. I must admit I was going overboard with my social networking attempts . .with very little success. . .and what good is that?
Now, I plan to work a few and focus on my craft . . . now the question is which few should I keep? Any suggestions?
