Anne and I are not immune to feeling down from time to time. I’m sure all small business owners experience this. It’s the curse of a creative mind, you dream your days away feeling elated at every new idea, then come crashing down as the inevitable plateau comes.
Suffice to say I have been feeling a little this way of late, we’ve also been making some hard decisions about the jewellery, such as who will stay and who will go. For example my favourite pendant looks set for the chop, I adore this pendant and wear it very regularly, but despite my admiration it hasn’t been popular with customers. Obviously I have unique taste 🙂 I would dearly love to know what is ‘wrong’ with it, so if you have any feedback please feel free to share it here.
But just as I was feeling very ‘woe is me’ I had a lovely email from Anne telling me that she has been nominated and made the final 6 in the Mumpreneur awards for Best Online Business. How fabulous is that! Of course I think she is beyond worthy of the award (but I may be ever so slightly bias). But Anne is the one who has really built the business, dragging it from nothing into something to really be proud of, it has taken far more time and energy than you might expect and I think she’s done a wonderful job. I feel very proud that she’s made the final 6 and I will hopefully be attending the awards with her. If you too are going be sure to keep an eye out for us.
So it goes to prove that yet again the law of a creative life carries on, I have moved from one low to another wonderful high. Lets hope there’s more of them to come 🙂
