Years before I met Rob it was my dream to run a business with my husband one day so we could work together and make our own hours, never worry about loosing our jobs and, eventually, when we were wildly successful, take off to lay on a Mexican beach for a month, just because.
The ideal home business for us came when the newspaper Rob was working for went under and their recording studio, equipment and all, got liquidated into our second bedroom. Our current set-up is fine for now, and it was perfect that we had a place to put it, however, it needs to go into an office building if we are going to be taken seriously as a business. And that’s the goal for the rest of 2009. Everything is connected and we’re open for business, but I want us to be known as THE place to go in the NYC area if you have an audio project you need professional produced (by my <brag>Emmy and Oscar-award husband!</brag>). We’re hoping to find space in DUMBO (the area of Brooklyn right across the water from Manhattan) to be easily accessible to both boroughs.
This is the pipe dream. I don’t know if it’s viable in this current economic climate, but I figure it’s worth putting out there that we currently have a great studio available for recording, and hopefully soon we’ll have a great studio in a professional space available. For now you have to come to our apartment, which is just fine, really, and I promise I’ll make you coffee while your here, or put on the kettle for some tea.
