I’m always struck by how people chose to make a living. Take my new favorite travel mug, a gift from my college roommate from her friend’s over at The Makers Mill. This mug is simple in design, utilitarian, and fun to hold. Honestly, I did giggle a bit when I saw the hot chick. After vacation I’m feeling more like a fried chicken, which is still a chicken, but certainly not a hot chick!
The Makers Mill company has its own vibe and specialization that is unique. See, that’s what this year is really about for me–figuring out my space in the entrepreneur scene. My business partners and I are lucky enough to be part of the Top Gun program from the Maine Center for Entrepreneurial Development. We had the first meeting on Saturday and I was wowed by the innovation flowing around that room. It struck me that entrepreneurs and writers are similar breeds, people full of ideas and passion and hope.
What the Top Gun program does is pair you with mentors that have been through the eye of the storm before you. Thing is, you can’t be a good writer without mentors, and I’m certain that this mentorship is going to help so much in the coming year.
So to all that makers and mentors, I’m raising my hot chick mug to you! Get working!
