Mamarazzi is taking a bloggy break this month, so Friday Confessional will be hanging out here this month. This is the last Friday that the Confessional will be hosted here, so link up and share all your dirty little secrets!

I confess…

I have big news to share this week! I’ve been hinting about this almost all year. I expected to announce this months ago, but the entire process seemed to get extraordinarily complicated and took about twice as long as expected. I don’t talk very much about work on the blog. Because I’m in insurance sales, it’s not really appropriate  nor do I typically have good stories. But today, I’m going to talk about work a little bit.

I confess…

Some of you may know that last year, I bought the agency that I’ve worked at for years. My former employer was retiring and gave me the option to buy him out. He even self-financed the loan so that I could establish equity in the company, but a stipulation of our contract was that I make a balloon payment to him by the end of the year.

I confess…

I’ve been working on getting the loan for the balloon payment most of the year. For reasons I won’t get into, I had to do so by going through the Small Business Association. And yesterday, after six months of working through the process, the Mister and I closed the loan, and the payment check was issued! We are celebrating this weekend!

I confess…

That even though I’ve actually owned the agency for 22 months, this makes things feel really official.

I confess…

I have also signed a lease for new office space that is about two minutes from my house; right now my office is about half hour away from home…so I will be busy this month getting my agency packed up and ready to move at the end of November.

I confess…

Somewhere in the last two years, I’ve turned into a really grown-up. When did that happen? But hey, I’m a grown-up that owns her business!
