So yesterday was the first day my shop was open and my website was live – and I would say it was a successful day!! I received so many texts, calls and messages from friends and family with compliments and support, that it truly made my day. I also got over 250 likes on Facebook! I was hoping for 100 likes, but over 250 – woah!! But the most exciting news is that I got my first 6 sales!!! I know this may not seem like a lot but for me it was such an accomplishment on my first day. The best part is that half of the sales were from complete strangers on Etsy – this means that people other than my friends are liking my product and I couldn’t be happier
Below is a quote my sister sent me yesterday that I wanted to share with all of you because I think it is perfect for anyone starting a new business or starting any new adventure. When I read it I said this is SO true! I will keep this one hung up at my desk.
“An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.”
Below is a pic of some of my first orders shipping out – woo!!
