Now What? Week 1

I handed in the keys to the bakery last night and it became official, my business had passed. It was like getting a death certificate and trying to put all the pieces together. The complex owner said,"I'm so sorry this didn't work out for you". I took a deep breathe and said, "thanks". I walked out of the empty bakery that no longer smelled of Whoopie Pies and cupcakes and began to cry. It was really gone. What do I do now? Naturally being the type of person that cannot sit still, I write a book about this experience, right? I hope people begin to follow this blog because it has 2 purposes, one is to chronicle the process of writing my book and two to provide some support for others who have suffered the death of a business.


  1. Alisa,

    I'm mourning along with you. I admire your positivity. True mark of a survivor. Don't abandon the concept, because it is a good one.

    I look forward to reading along here, and the book(s)!
