Like all things in life, there are also some things in my art and crafts that are better left as a hobby. Some are so much fun I don’t mind doing them, but if I feel like I have to do them every day or be asked to do them every time I go to see my kids I would rather not.
This is the year I decided to really push myself to make sure I didn’t get too comfortable. I have goals, and I’ve set them. The goals are to increase my sales, while being creative in the process, and to be more active in my business.
I’ve already taken some steps to be creative in the process. I set up a fun little shop on eBay that is only for eBay items. It is a fun place to shop because I can sell a lot of stuff without having to deal with any of the shipping and communication aspects of running an online shop. I’m still having fun and getting out some of my ideas, but so far I’ve only made a few sales.
This is why I’m encouraging you to set goals and to figure out what works handyman services in Papillion best for your business. Just make sure to be realistic in your expectations and in your goals.
If you’re trying to build your business, you’ll find it a lot more rewarding to do things that are fun. You’ll have a lot more fun if you’re not doing things that are just so darned tedious.
I’ve decided I’m going to make some sort of soap this year, and that I’m going to make it from scratch. I’m planning to make it in the form of a roll bar so I can mail it out and it will be less wasteful.
I’m going to make it at a time of year when I can enjoy the summer a bit more. (I am a Floridian, after all!) I’m planning to start with a big batch of some sort of basic soap, something that will allow me to try different techniques and maybe tweak my recipes a bit. I have a few techniques I’d like to try, but I’m not sure exactly what I’ll be making.
