Well I know I have been quite, for a long time. Some RL things happened… I will talk about them in another post because it is far to heavy for this post… this post is about seeing my long standing dreams become reality.
This right here is the start of my project. Still unnamed but a project nonetheless. My idea with this is to create a fun space to house a few little startup businesses that I have been plotting for some timed.
First, we have a live music/dj event space in the “Park” area. This goes all the way back to my first time in SL years ago when I was DJ and Club Manager/Owner. I love music and I miss having some place I can go to hear some great music. SO I thought I would build one LOL. I am not sure when or how many events I will be having here, but I like how the space is shaping up. Obviously it’s far from finished (hence the long shots) but you can kinda get an idea of what I have planned.
Next, we have my Gacha resale area. I will be renting a few spots but three out of the four “shacks” are already spoken for. But I thought these “Shotgun Shacks” by Trompe Lolei were perfect for the repurposed campground theme that I have in mind. This area isn’t completed let either but the basic structures are in place…
Here is another shot of the stage area…. it’s from the DRD garden party Gacha set. If you were curious. In the back you can kinda see the two other structures on the land. My brick and mortar store for LGD and the offices of the photo studio have been dreaming of for quite a while now.
There are few other things, some on this parcel… some on my sister’s land… that I am working on and am I super excited about. Building a business is what makes me excited in SL.
For all my years on the grid and off, the one thing that brings back is the strong Entrepreneurial spirit that runs through SL. There is an accessibility to starting a business in SL that so many of us don’t have in RL. So this leads me to my final little thing I want to talk to your about.
“The Local Girl Gang” Is concept that my sister Desi and I have had for a few years now. It’s a place for women, and female identifying people (we are 100% trans and nonbinary inclusive), can gather and come together to foster a creative, positive and inclusive ideas. We have ideas that range from shopping events that highlight majority female owned business to Game nights where we just hang out and have fun. I am still working on the back end of things to set this up but I am so stinking excited about this whole project! I can’t wait to share more and hopefully see some of you join!
