Wow. I’m not big on daily affirmations and all that (and I’m not particularly religious), but this really hit home with me when I read this.
“He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will recieve his wages according to his labor.”
~ 1 Corinthians 3:8
broken down by my friend Jeff, it means that you reap what you sew, good or bad.
I’m in the process of starting Muddy Boots Press and I know that for the first one or two years, it will be primarily just helping others because I won’t be able to sign many new authors or commit a ton of time while I’m on active duty. My five year plan is to add no more than two authors per year for the first five years, so we’ll be very small initially.
I’ve been using the term “karma;” that hopefully when we do begin signing new talent, they’ll have heard about the small press that helped others for free and want to sign on.
Thanks Jeff, this is what I needed!
