Oh wow so much has happened in the last couple months or so I have been quite absent from my business while also trying hard to be as present as I could be. Not to get too much into it but my dad has been having health problems for the better part of 2017 and lets just say I didn’t really feel like having anything to do with running my store. When it comes to family + health all those little things that seemed so important before just don’t seem to matter anymore! Trying to prep for the baby and finishing up with my serving job I had all these big marketing plans and goals for January but here we are beginning of March and the last 2 weeks I finally feel like ok I can get back a bit.
I am struggling with the balance of serving full time and trying to get my store to where it needs to be for me to compete in the market. I feel like I am in a weird space because I need to work as much as possible before the baby comes and I go on maternity leave but I also need a solid week to get my store spring time ready! These are things that yes a few months ago would have me stressed to the max but in my current mood I am a bit laissez-faire about it. At the end of the day I think we are the hardest on ourselves and when you work for yourself I guess the only person that suffers if you. Everyone else is going on with their day and not noticing if you haven't added new products in the last week. So my question to you guys is how do you balance work life when something emotionally major happens and makes it seem so insignificant?
On a side note as I was putting together my favourite instagrams for February I am very happy with how my feed is looking. It only took about 3 years but hey at least I figured out my secret sauce eventually! Now onto to making my website look as good as my insta feed…. I will get there I just know it!
Thanks for always being there for me everyone + listening.
PS. stay tuned for a new post all about the silversmith class I have been taking for the last 6 weeks! It wraps up this week + I can't wait to share some of the pieces I have made ( that being said there not the greatest... but hey you have to start somewhere?? )
