I just had to share! I cant believe this is really happening!


I posted in another thread above that a girlfriend and I were looking to become business partners and open a little exclusive wine and gifts

Congratulations and gl. We invested in a similar local venture last year, more of a New England type package store with an emphasis on wine. We're silent partners at this point, but I hope to get a little more involved after my retirement in a few years.

We looked to invest in a local business for awhile and considered restaurant, tavern, catering, gift and specialty store, but this opportunity presented the best business case. We'll see how our choice of local venture capital works in the long run, but so far, so good.

Thank you! We are quite excited!


I think what will be good for my friend is that while it will still be ft work (at least for awhile) it is not as physically and emotionally taxing as her current job. Shes had some health problems over the years and I keep telling her she needs to SLOW down a bit. This business will still be a lot of work, but its on a totally different level.


And I am trying to figure out how I am going to do this, plus participate in the community theater play I got a part in, plus meet my writing commitments (just got another book deal!), all while being supermom, LOL.
