David vs. Goliath

A good friend of mine made that analogy and that is exactly how I feel.

The CPSC has decided to take a year to revamp the ill conceived CPSIA.


My voice was heard.

Praise God.

I feel like celebrating!!!!

14 have been arrested on drug-related charges

8 have been arrested for shoplifting
21 currently are defendants in lawsuits, and

84 have been arrested for drunk driving
in the last year
Can you guess which one it is?

Neither. It is the 435 members of Congress.

No wonder. We are trusting these yahoos to make the law?

I am so Lucky


I use the word all the time.

I feel lucky that I am in Target.
I feel lucky I get to stay home with my kids.
I feel lucky that I have such great customers, friends in the business, etc.

Almost every time I talk to another entrepreneur about Target, they say how lucky it was that I got the phone call. I just want to be perfectly clear.

I am a Christian, so I really feel luck has nothing to do with it. God has blessed me, and His plan was far greater than the one I could have dreamed for myself. I remember in the beginning, every night I would pray that God would bless my business and turn it into something that would allow me to stay home with my kids.

My prayers have been answered.
