I was reading a post on Wahmtown and it only confirmed my thoughts, ummm...maybe you should.
I hit this startling revelation when I realized that I was jumping into this whole soaper thing head first....off a steep cliff...
I have a lot of research to do. And I have to be honest with myself about what I know. I want my product to be unique and fresh, and I'm really wanting this business to turn out right. But I need to expand my soapy mind database. And besides, being a wife, a mommy, and not just a wife and a mommy, a STAY-AT-HOME, wife and a mommy who goes to university...leaves not that much time with soaping. And plus
My daughter is growing up so fast, and I find myself setting aside a few play dates with my lab/kitchen just to make sure I don't miss not one moment. Between soap, hubby, house, more soap, and little papeechka (her nickie) I don't know where my time is coming from!!!!
Take it one day at a time...
Making money is great, but without the proper knowledge and skills, as a business, you will lose your integrity, honesty, and overall quality of the business itself and the product. So my new plan, is to stop, remain level headed, and do my research first.
That TOTALLY doesn't mean I'm gonna stop making soap!! It just means, I'll totally be on top of my reasearch while making soap (and totally still posting it). And the Etsy opening date will most likely be pushed back.
