What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

Keeping pace with my goal. I have been working on my website and will get help (hire out) to get it up and running. I seem to take on every task myself which leaves me a bit overwhelmed. I need help structuring my time and keeping steps with my goals. Am I planning realistically?

Actions I’ve taken so far

Created and purchased goods. I have a S-Corp and purchased the name "coraandrose.com" to begin building the website. I have investigated and started building with WIX but I am not savvy on the computer so will need help designing. I also plan to start selling in the flea markets in NYC this fall (Oct) to get the ball rolling and promote the website there. One of the fashion pieces I will put on Etsy to also start the selling process.

My future goals

I would like the website to grow so I can hire at lease two emoyees by 2023. Building on that fondation I'd love to have a brick & morter that services the community (depending on size of space) offer local artists a place to showcase and sell works, monthly movie night (informative) with a small cafe... my DREAM is having g acreage to facilitate.

My motivations to work with a mentor

Having someone to help me flesh out my thoughts and structure my goals. I have no problem working things out in my head - implementation is where I stumble a lot!
