What have I done?
« on: November 15, 2012, 01:20:24 PM »
As it turns out, today is the last day of "work" for both me and my business partner. One planned, one not so much. We're now full-time owners of a brewery that only exists on paper.

This is probably the most terrifying thing I've ever done.

when the universe decides that you MUST do something there is very little that can be done about it except to sit back and enjoy. Terror, while... terrifying, can be a very enlivening experience.

Good luck

Ones mind becomes focused when doing a risky venture without a net. Good luck. Hope to stop in some day for a pint.
