This is the first of four blog posts that I’ve needed to write for about a month now. To be fair, I only started with three. But I’ve taken so long that it’s up to four. Go me. This first of the “Important Information” posts is on the most exciting of the four.
I promise this one has a point. It just may take me a bit to get around to it. That sounds super promising, right? I’ve been thinking a lot about this idea of rebuilding lately and making huge changes that can only be classified as rebuilding. I never really thought too much about that kind of thing before I turned 30 because I always knew what I wanted to do. There was never a reason to rebuild. There was only building. Then my world imploded.
This is a post I have been sitting on since last market season. I thought it would be appropriate (and I finally have the confidence) to put it out into the world instead of letting it languish on my computer. Market season is gearing up to start and since I've seen these behaviors the last 2 years, I'm assuming I'll see them again this year. I'm seriously thinking about posting a copy of this to my stall. Phyiscally.
I am branching out, officially! Well, officially as in I have purchased the domain name. Which is about as official as I get some days.
I hesitate to make decisions because I’m pretty sure I suck at business thinking and moves. I have that all to common fear of failure (told you I wasn’t special) and I worry that I’m wasting too much time on this failure in the making and not spending it on my beautiful kiddo. I can easily work myself into a frenzy of panic and anxiety just by questioning how I can do better. The simple fact is that I want to be better. I want to be successful. I want to do this for myself. I want to build something. I love being a mom. I want to do something in addition to being a mom. Part of it plays to rebuilding my confidence; the other part is quieting my somewhat neurotic need to be constantly doing something.
Finally! It’s up and done! Well, not done as it is an ever evolving organism of a sorts. But it is at least completed enough that it is fit for public consumption. At long last, my new website is up and running. My hope is that it will be easier to navigate than my old website. The new homepage is my storefront so my products are the first thing you see.
