Now on to official bizniz...
One of the things I'm struggling with lately is being able to change hats as a small biz requires...being a one woman show, I do the designing, testing, creating, researching/sourcing, accounting, marketing, sales, delivery...it's exhausting and overwhelming. Somehow all of this gets done (slowly) but I continually struggle with switching gears when needed.
There are days where I just want to design and dye...but I know that there is a bunch of stock waiting to be delivered to one of the lovely local stores that has agreed to carry my work so I have to stop what I'm doing to get it done especially since selling my work is what brings in the cashola (of course). I also find myself thinking about things ALL the time. My brainy brain hurts so bad some days cause I just can't give it a rest. Basically the problem here is that there are way too many ideas and not enough time to make...so focus is required (not always my strong area).
Honestly, I'm not complaining...I feel very lucky to have this opportunity to work on what I love to do (helps having a wonderful partner who is so so supportive). I do wish I had a small team of elves waiting to do all the stuff that I don't like doing--like finding my battery charger so I can re-charge the batteries to my lil broken camera so that I can actually show you all the stuff I've been making. Le Sigh.
xo happy monday to you.
