I am officially a small business owner. Frightening, I know. I am such an airhead at times, I have no concept how this is going to work. But it will work if it's the last thing I do. It's got to.

I'm talking about my new small business with my occupational therapy. For several years now, I've operated independently in home health carrying a small caseload of patients....until I realized that I can be even more profitable by hiring a few certified occupational therapy assistants to see the patients while I go do initial evaluations, marketing and other things to expand my small "adventure".

I put an ad in KSL and hooray - got some responses and hired two ladies who are going to make my life so much easier. I really think I'll be able to work less away from home and yet make a lot more. The hardest part is that now I have 2 whole families (not including my own) relying on me for their livelihood. It's a little scary and a huge responsibility but I take it seriously and am dedicated to making it a success for us all.

However, the learning curve has been one big suck fest. I am absolutely ignorant of anything business related - like taxes, insurance, worker's comp, payroll, blah blah. Not to mention it bores me to tears. But it's so near done now. By tomorrow I'll be past the madness and moving on with my life.

So, three cheers for occupational therapy and our assistants - and everyone who has helped me make this possible. I can now move on and be my children's mom!
