This morning, listening to news about the latest lottery winner (something in the millions yet to be claimed in Iowa), I did that little, "what would I do with all that money?". I thought about the usual -- family, friends & philanthropic uses....then thought how wonderful it might be to just sell vintage finds - and have that be my only work. See, I have worked a full time job in education since finishing college (which was many years ago) so it is my norm...and rarely do I let my mind travel to not working.
Upon arriving at my office in Eau Claire, the day unfolded with the usual: meetings, computer time, conference call, and so on. But it also included this team of coworkers that truly make very challenging work O.K.-- even enjoyable. So as certain as I am that if I won a lottery I would work less, I am not certain if I could walk away.
Here are some candid shots of my little work space....including my inspiration board. As you might notice, there is no lottery ticket, no stack of money...just work that can be rewarding enough to keep me coming back for more.
How about you - truth be told -- if you won the lottery...what would you do?
