I am humbled. I knew starting a business would not be an easy endeavor, but I didn’t quite expect this. Every time I make some headway, life throws an obstacle my way. Yes, obstacles are good because they build resilience, experience and enable you to grow as a human being, blah blah blah. It’s hard enough to find time for the most basic tasks without these added obstacles, forget about trying to start a home based craft business.
Raising a child is a seriously time consuming endeavor, and trying to do it correctly, well forget it…no time for anything, ever. Throw in some PRK laser vision correction (I’ll get into that nightmare in another post) and I had the perfect recipe for an unproductive summer for anything business related. Minimal progress was made with my website and I didn’t create any new product.
I allowed myself a few days to mourn my lack of productivity and then gave myself a few more days just for good measure. When I was done sulking, I put my game face on and decided that the best course of action was to re-evaluate. I tweaked my timeline and restructured my goals to reflect a more realistic approach. I’m back on social media, working on my website and designing/creating product every day. I even signed up for my first craft show! I’m excited and ready to rock and roll!
I’ll be back soon with an update!
Thanks for reading and until next time, be kind to each other and try to find the beauty in everything, including yourself. 💕
