Then Vinland Stables was born and David and I became business owners overnight. I really didn’t think much of it and went along as normal until the bills started coming in and we were having many problems with our clients. In the beginning I wasn’t very strong and I was nervous to take control of how our business was going to operate and everything started to go downhill very fast. Things didn’t change in my life until I had several people give their notice all at once and I knew it was because they were not happy with the atmosphere in our barn.
Becoming a businesswoman doesn’t happen all in one day. It is a journey of growing and learning from your mistakes and not making the same ones twice. It has to come deep from within and you don’t have to walk this road alone. Running a large facility has taught me so much about myself and what I can accomplish as a businesswoman but only as long as the Lord is by my side.
I encourage you to take time each day to pray for guidance and wisdom to make wise decisions about your horse business. There are going to be days that are tough and it will always fall back on you as the business owner but you don’t have to do it alone. God is right there every step of the way.
Remember we are a work in progress and if life gets tough God is always there to pick us up and send us in the right direction. He will never leave our side.
2 Corinthians 8:16 NIV
