Staying Small

staying small | Kelsey Mitchener Editing Services

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my small business: how to shape it; how to grow it. In the next few months I’m looking to do some big things and make some big changes, but I always want to stay small.

I love being a one-woman show, the smallest of teams (for one thing, I happen to love my boss). But sometimes I listen too much to voices around me. You’re too isolated, they say. You’re not a team player. You’ll never be enough on your own. Well, they’re wrong. When you love what you do and you’re awesome at doing it, I say just keep doing what you’re doing. (And surround yourself with kinder voices.)

Anyway, I’m loving this gentle reminder from entrepreneur Jason Fried that there’s nothing wrong with staying small.

Rifle Paper Co. calendars | Happy 2015

Happy 2015! Time to switch out my Rifle Paper Co. calendars (I’m obsessed with this stationery shop). 🙂 I love the feeling of a new year and a fresh start.

Looks like my new appointment calendar is wide open for now (although I need to fill in a few upcoming deadlines)—let me know if I can work with you on an editing project or two this coming year. I’m excited to be in a position to amp up my freelance editing in 2015, and it’s one of my main goals for the year. What are your resolutions?

Here’s to health and happiness to you and yours! Happy New Year!
