I didn’t dream this last night. I dreamed it over 7 years ago, but it would never go away. Up to now, I’ve been too embarrassed to talk about it (and you'll see why in a minute), but here we go… I dreamed I started a business and called it 333CardCompany because 3:33 pm was the time of day when people needed a pick-me-up.
It was so vivid down to the last little detail, I couldn’t ignore it. I looked up the scripture Deuteronomy 33:3 and read… “Indeed, He loves His people.”
After pondering it for a very long time, I figured God was asking me to start an online card business to remind people that He loved them.
there were just a few small problems...
I had no business expertise. No photography or Photoshop editing experience. No website creating experience. No business model. No understanding of the steps it took to obtain a business license. No marketing experience. Zero. Zip. Nada. I think you get the point.
I started it anyway. I googled how to do everything (amazing, that google).
How did the business go?
It bombed. Major big-time bombed (as in "I-sold-one-card-in-a- year" sort of bomb).
My friend and I laughed until we cried (ok, maybe I cried first, then laughed).
Which brings me to today…
It recently dawned on me that LiveJournal is my "333CardCompany".
That’s why I’m here every day to tell you that God loves you.
He does, you know.
