It used to be my main source of income – my own little business that sold laser-cut goodies. It’s waxed and waned with my mental health, but this year I really want it to take off again and be the underpinning of working for myself.
Knowing that sales are better with new designs, marketing, forethought and all the sound business stuff, I’ve been very slow to re-open the online shop. There’s so much to do first – so much to do! Late on Sunday I decided just to re-open offering only items that were successful before and progress from there.
Today, I sold my first item and it was one that I considered not re-listing. This has created enthusiasm to put the effort in, and a little money with will pay for some of the new packaging that I’d like to design.
Don’t wait for perfect. Get going!
