Considering My Field

Earlier this year, a friend of mine got me interested in Poshmark.
 I started listing things from our closet.  
Next I found myself buying things specifically to resell.  I was really enjoying it!  
I thought, "Why not buy a few dresses that I like and resell them?"
But I know how I am at sales.  I am seriously the WORST sales person EVER!  
Like, I can not even get people to take things for free.  
I once tried getting people to sign up to a clothing site - they would get $15 credit and I would get $15...ONE person signed up.  Yeah, so, we know how that would go.  
Then again, I was really enjoying selling on Poshmark.
I couldn't get it off my mind.
 The Lord kept bringing Proverbs 31:16 to my mind,
"She considereth a field, and buyeth it:
with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard."
I finally mentioned it to my husband thinking he would say no.  I was surprised when he not only said yes, but encouraged me to do more than what I had planned!  Okay.  He DID mention my sales record once. ;)
I called our tax man and asked what I'd need to paperwork.  He helped me get my EIN and I thought that was it!  Boy, was I in for a surprise!  I sent out a text to a friend and told her I had started my business...then found out I needed to file papers all over the place. haha  
I looked like a total clueless blonde.  As a security guard was walking me back to one place, he asked what type of business I was starting.  Then said, "Well, hope that works out for you!"
On the way back from filing the last papers, I had this sinking feeling.  I thought, "What did I just do?  I am SO busy as it is!  I'm a wife, homeschooling mom to 6, a very active Pastor's if I have time for this!  I am CRAZY!"  
I felt sick to my stomach!
The adventure had begun!
