Between, crafting, teaching, blogging, work and now owning a shop, I hope I can juggle everything gracefully.
Before I tell you the great exciting news, a lesson to learn:
A Life Lesson for Opening a Business
My shop has been opened for a month or two, and considering the inventory it had, I got an OK viewing audience. But with no sales, and little interest (and a similar real life situation currently happening) I realized a slow, gradual opening is never the way to go.
They say “Start Small”, but they’re talking in the grander scheme of things. So, whether you’re opening a Pizzeria or a cyberstore, THINK BIG!
As my dad always says, “No Pain, No Gain”, so I’ve stocked up and scheduled a grand opening SALE!!! That’s right! A TWO-WEEK event starting April 2, 2013: all shoppers will receive 20% OFF every item!
My shop’s name is Mellow With a Punch. I had asked my friend Trevor how he would describe me and that’s what he came up with. Not only does that phrase fit me like a glove, but it’s the personality in my work as well.
My shop features ceramic objects, and paper goods including artist books, prints and hand-bound journals! Click the photos to below to be linked to the item in my store!
