When I began this string of blog posts with RWP Origins 1, I had no idea that there would be a re-launch. I began writing to encourage others who had dreams and goals, business or personal. You may think to yourself that I should have left out some of the “whiny” bits, but those tough spots sure made the accomplishments sweeter. You may think that our dream was flawed because we felt the need to make so many changes, but in business (as in life) we should remember that you don’t know, what you don’t know, until you know it, it is imperative to plan, but plans always change, and although there are always obstacles, we can be certain that there are always solutions (they just might not be the solutions that you imagined)
The more personal reasons that I began writing is due partly to wishing that I had taken more photo’s, Megan actually was nursing babies while designing layouts, a photo of the pink and grey office being constructed with custom cabinetry (thank you Stephen, probably not what you had in mind when designing your new home), toddlers sitting at the little tikes desk in that office working with Mom and Grammy. Writing a book of limericks on our way to a show and laughing so hard our faces hurt, and the bloopers in recordings.
These blogs also were meant to thank all of those wonderful people that shared our vision, to let them peak in and see that although the wheels seem to turn so slowly, the rollercoaster never stopped, and without them, family and friends, it could not have kept going.
Last but not least, shouting out to our Artists. For those who do not know the ins and outs of our company, all of our illustrators are contracted, some choose a small up-front advance on royalties, some took no advance. These wonderful people have entrusted us to share their work with the world professionally, in a way that puts the best light on their amazing talents, and patiently wait to see what’s coming next. They have worked so hard at bringing our characters to life, organizing whole worlds to support the themes and ideas we have written the words for. They didn’t join us because we could offer them a fine financial future, they joined us believing in the concept that IS Rosy Window Productions, to teach our Children to NOT look at the world through rose coloured glasses, but to give them the tools to enjoy looking out their own window to a pretty rosy world.
