We’ll Figure It Out (A.K.A. Business by Design)

Women in Design-Denver (WiD) along with the Society of Design Administrators (SDA)sponsored our first Business by Design day-long conference on February 11, 2014.  It was a day of professional services and professional advice.  As a new business owner with concerns about size of projects and working from a desk in my home, I found the overall theme to be, “We’ll figure it out!” It’s the positive, forward looking, optimistic message for which all entrepreneurs are looking.  Yes, we need an accountant, a lawyer, an insurance agent, a computer and programs, a business plan, a financial plan… Even more importantly, we each need to know that it is possible to figure it out.  The resources are out there.  The work is out there.  Our future clients and friends are out there. We may be working differently than we did even 4 years ago…..and yet, WE WILL FIGURE IT OUT!
