What are the highs and lows of running your own business?
To watch my little biz grow from one strength to the next knowing that all my hard work and dedication is paying off!
To be able make my own decisions and to be my own boss creating a business that I am so passionate about!
Seeing how happy my customers are when they know they have just purchased something totally amazing! Nothing really beats a happy customer.
A big one is defiantly being able to spend more time with my little girl and fiancé which I feel so blessed to be able to do.
Yes you are able to choose your own hours, though generally those hours are very long mixed in with house cleaning mummy duties and other daily chores. As I’m writing this my lovely little family are at the door asking for lunch! Don’t burn yourself out make sure you get in those ME days.
Getting your head around marketing and PR and were and how you should advertise your business can be very daunting and frustrating at the start, but there is so many networking groups, blogs and amazing pages like Mum pages out there to help you so don’t give up! If need be take a break and then tackle it from another angle give yourself time to learn (portfolio period).
