We are six now. Chop wood, carry water

We booked our Christmas party this week and there are six of us now.

We are not all full time, not by a long stretch. But there are six of us.

A few short years ago there was just me. I answered the phone, wrote the letters, licked the stamps, went to the post office.

Then there was me and Josephine. Then me and Josephine and Stephen.

And now there are six.

These steppingstones of success, of having made progress at least, sneak up on you. There is usually no big bang or overnight success, not one incident or event that catapults a small business into the stratosphere.

It is usually small steps and assiduous, consistent day to day work in the things that matter for your business.

Chop wood, carry water.
