The year of the doughnut begins!!!

I used to not be so positive about everything but I realized it's way more wonderful of a feeling to be positive about stuff.

Make this YOUR year...take January 1st, 2011 as a clean slate and write out whatever you want. It's YOUR slate! This year is going to be the year of the doughnut for me. What is it going to be for you?

Before I started this business I had never worked so hard on anything in my entire life. NOTHING. I always did everything just as it needed to be done. Now, I see what needs to be done and I do triple that. Why? Because I am not going to get anywhere if I don't push myself and push my business. I'm not going to be original forever so I need to get my logo imprinted on as many minds as I can before there is competition. I will be THE original doughnut favors BUT will I always be the one EVERYONE who needs doughnuts goes to? No! Is that okay? YES!

I'm not trying to make millions, I am trying to be me and put smiles on people's faces! I am trying to love what I do...and I DO! Do you?

So I am starting this year right with a bunch of inspiration quotes that have helped me...and they'll help you! And every time I read them it's like my heart is pumping it's fist (if it had one) in the air and yelling "YEAHHHHHHHHHHH, let's do it!!!" No, i'm not talking about the jersey fist pump!

So here they are, enjoy and enjoy your year of the ________________!!!!

    And,i need to leave a comment about my favourite doughnut flavor for the contest that i read about on 'Party Starters'
    So, here i go, my favourite doughnut flavor is CHOCOLATE! forever :))

  5. I just hopped over through Party Starters...and I have to say how much I love this post and your entire attitude! I've noticed you all over the place over the last few months, so you are definitely getting some branding done!

    I've never tried your doughnuts, but would love to try some soon. I just checked out your shop, and the maple sound divine.

    As I work on my year of party planning, I definitely hope to keep your products in mind for at least one! Best of luck for 2011 and beyond!

  6. I think I would love to try the original flavor. But I am not opposed to trying them all!!!
