Business Shy

Hey Everyone!!!!

Hope this week has been a good one for you. I know it’s been a very busy one for me. All week long and even before that I was overwhelming myself with the things I knew I had to do, in regards to starting my Shopify store.

I’m not gonna lie, I thought it was going to be easy, I gotta  tell you it’s not. Maybe if I was dropshipping it may have been easier, but it’s a whole nother ball game when you’re putting your products out there to be viewed, sold, and critiqued. I want to say, “I don’t know why it is that this is such a trial for me?” But I know exactly why; because it’s something I put my efforts in, I love doing it and I don’t want to hear the criticism that’s gonna come with it. I know for a fact there’s gonna be criticism, cause with what ever you do there’s always criticism. Sometimes criticism can be an opinion, and other times it could be a fact, either way I’m open to it. I understand getting feedback is always a good thing, because it makes you want to do better. Although sometimes it may make you want to give up. When you feel like that, that’s the time you need to push yourself through it.

Just know I’m scared. I’m scared of failing. There’ve been other things I’ve tried my hand at, some I’m currently working on. But this is the only one a larger number of people have seemed to take interest in. Please don’t think I’m dismissing you (my followers a.k.a my beautiful people). I’m only saying this is the only way at the time I see I can make money while doing something I love.

As many of you know I enjoy writing, but this isn’t paying the bills. I feel bad everyday I don’t check in with you all, but I’m working towards something I see someday becoming something bigger than I could ever imagine. Please understand if I could be here writing posts, without financial concerns, I would be writing everyday all day. Unfortunately I don’t have that luxury. So all I ask is for you all to be patient with me. Starting up an online store isn’t easy.

Also this whole shy thing I have going on, something I’ve dealt with ever since I was a child; Is something that hinders you a great deal in business. What I’ve learned is the extroverts are the ones who seem to do very well in business because they’re not afraid to be the center of attention when need be. Many times for them it doesn’t matter that their product may be garbage; the most important thing is how well you can sale yourself while selling the product. When it comes to business it’s all about trust.

So at this time I’ve been trying to find a less debilitating way to become more extroverted. I know it’s gonna be a struggle, I just hope in the long run it comes full circle.

Good morning Good People!!!!

 

How is your morning going?….. I hope just as well as you want it to be. Hopefully you’re somewhere making money, sleeping or spending time with someone you love.

 

Well today I’ve just been real focused on everything that I am trying to get off of the ground. I mean really, when am I not focused on that? Come to think about it, I have been working on creating different things for a couple of years now. I’m sure something is going to take off, I’m just not sure what. At the current time I’m working on my soap company, trying to build it up from the ground up. I know this is going to take a lot of blood sweat and tears. I’m ready for it.

I never knew I would enjoy making soap so much, but I really do. And the great thing about my soaps are…. they’re made with natural ingredients and love. Most of them are made with essential oils, such as peppermint, eucalyptus, tea tree, patchouli, calendula, chamomile and many others. I also have some that are made from fragrance oil.

I first began making soap because I thought it would be a fun hobby; as I’m sure most other people have. But then, I started giving it to friends and family and they began telling me how much they enjoyed the soap and how good it made their skin feel.

Then I started to believe I could make a business out of it. Mainly because all the ingredients I use are beneficial for your skin and over all health. My products are nothing like most commercial products. It is very different. Once you try it, I truly doubt you would want to go back to your current brand of soap. Every bar is highly conditioning, therapeutic and immensely gentle on the skin.
