Decisions are not always easy. If you don’t make the right ones, thoughts of failure hang over your head. But sometimes you need to push outside your comfort zone to reach the next level. Take that leap of faith, whether it is on a personal level or for your career.
In my case it’s my business. I recently upgraded the website to a more professional and known platform, WordPress. https://login.wordpress.org/ Which provides many more options than my previous platform. Back then nearly 3 years ago I was a newby to web stores. I learnt alot about the ins and outs of website backends. The new platform enables me to have more eCommerce presence. Though somewhat more complicated I do now need help with many of these ins and outs. In which I call on the developer who assisted with the sites setup. It also means more work on my part, like writing this blog.
So whats next?
For nearly 3 years we have been setting up our popup shop, at markets, school fairs, hospital doorsteps, local clubs and in friends homes. Packing up the car, unpacking, repacking and unpacking again, is something you get down pat after a while. Everything has its place in the car, so it all fits and that was my Misters department, I could not have done it without him. Any market stall holders will know what I’m talking about, its dam hard work out there in the elements rain, cold and heat. I take my hat off to those market stallholders who continue there business ventures through markets. Their passion for their craft is apparent, they are dedicated business owners.
The last 18 months we’ve had a permanent popup at the She Cave, https://www.facebook.com/theshecaveemporium/ . Where we shared space with other like minded women building their businesses from the ground up. It’s been fun and some life long friendships have been formed. But for me now I need to spread my wings. I need more space to accomplish my vision. So I will take that leap of faith and see where it takes me.
Over the coming months my journey will be setting up our first bricks and mortar store.
