I'm opening an online store!
For several months now, I've been working on getting everything together to start my business and the time to open the store is nearly here! It's been a long road for me, as I've been planning to sell my soaps for about 18 months. Deadlines came and went and I only can say was that I just wasn't ready yet. It's taken me a long time to get into the right mindset, to get paperwork in order, and to get to the point it was truly happening.
November would seem a silly time to start since November is the busiest month of the whole year for my family. We have 3 birthdays and a big family gathering during Thanksgiving week. What am I thinking? Well, not only because my task list getting checked off has come to this time but also because I'm in the right mindset and Go Big or Go Home right? :-) Oh, I have a lot of Seasonal/Holiday soaps on the shelf ready to go too. ;-)
All that 'Go Big or Go Home' talk aside...I've decided to finish off the year by opening my store for Special Events. I will open my store for a limited time and then close it again so that I can pack the orders and get them out in a reasonable amount of time. I am a newbie after all! I will try for a more regular schedule in 2013.
First and foremost, my priority is my family. I am a stay-at-home mom with three young children...and a very generous and supportive husband too I might add! I want this business to always come after them. That is not to say I won't give it my all and won't be working late into the night to get the work done. I will be and already have been doing so in preparation. I am really excited to sell my soaps and so happy so many of you have been waiting for me to do this. But I don't know how it's going to go yet and think the 'events' might be just the ticket. We'll see, I can always change my plan and move on to Plan L if need be.
Thank you all for the love and support and encouragement over the last couple of years! It's time!
