I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while, but alas…time has been against me, or at least I haven’t used it wisely.
About two years ago, it was suggested to me that I file for a Federal tax ID number so that I could do graphic design work on the side. See, graphic design is part of my full-time job, and it’s something I’ve excelled at over the years.
So I filed for an EIN–this is what I needed in order to become a sole proprietor.
Recently, I felt the need to open my sole proprietorship under a DBA-a “doing business as.” This will help me open a business account for my transactions, etc.
That paperwork came in this January and I was ready to go, having already accepted 4 jobs!
With on minor exception: my desk.
It’s a little desk, to be sure. It was actually a hand-me-down from my cousin who no longer needed it. But though she be little, she be fierce. Ya know what I’m saying?! lol. I thought my desk worked juuuuuuust fine. Well, ok, it worked well enough.
So, while I was out of town early in January, she left this for me at my house (she has a spare key, of course!):
I was like…NO WAY!!!! What in the world!!!! I proceeded to the home office to find this beautiful desk in place of the old one:
The morale of the story is that I have amazing friends, and I will never forget this amazing desk! EVER! It’s so me, right?!?!
Thank you so much Kathleen! You are the bestest!
Have a lovely Monday, friends!
