Maybe you can feel it too? That sense that something big is on the horizon. I've been describing it like a pinball in a pinball machine. Before you play you have to pull the spring that launches the ball all the back. ALL THE WAY. And if you're anything like me, you pull it back as far as it can possibly go because that launches the ball the furthest, right?! If I'm honest, I probably spent more time preparing a near-perfect launch, than I have actually playing! :)
I'm definitely no arcade master, but over this past year of business ownership I've felt like I've been playing. I've been strategizing scaling and growing during a time of economic hardship. I've been building for a future, in an uncertain present. I've been dreaming and creating when the world screams the opposite. And most importantly, I've really enjoyed the challenges of meeting our Flourish families, wherever they are.
Throughout all of this I've felt like I'm in the arcade, preparing my pinball, pulling the spring back as far as possible, making sure all of the levers are positioned correctly, and setting the stage for the perfect launch. It's in this brief season of waiting, just before the ball launches, that it feels like time stops. Fortunately, I'm no stranger to waiting seasons and all of this practice has made me very patient. :)
Our launch is just around the corner, friends, and I thought this would be a great time to answer questions, let you know how we got to where we are, and eventually fill you in on our future! It's not glamorous and just like our studio, it's full of process. Over the next few weeks I will be coming back to the blog:flourish to fill you in and I am looking forward to sharing our story!
Do you have a question? Is there a detail you want to know about? Drop it below and I will do my best to answer! As always, I am so extremely grateful for this community of creatives! Thank you for sharing in this journey with me!
