Happy to be Indie

We are currently living in uncertain economic times and globally we are all beginning to feel the effects. Many have been suffering for some time now, unable to purchase things once taken for granted like gas and food staples such as milk and rice. Financial experts have said we are experiencing the worst economic crisis since the great depression.

Despite all the depressing news I read and hear every day about our economy, I am happy to be an indie that owns her own company doing exactly what I love and have a passion for. I know some of you may be thinking how can she be happy to be an indie when small businesses are also being hit hard by this financial crisis?

Although, its true small businesses are being hit hard. Costs of natural resources and shipping have increased significantly, it does not knock us out of the game if we are willing to work a hundred times harder. Indies are passionate about what they do. We are willing to push ourselves to endless limits because our passion motivates us and our motivation fuels us to do more. As with anything else in life having a great support system behind us will almost ensure our survival.
