So how was last week for you all? My week was pretty good! I released my "A Different World" inspired tee/sweatshirt and have been getting pretty good feedback from it!
So during the week I had a conversation with a friend of mine, and I was reminded to ask myself "Why am I doing this?"... Here's the thing... I'm already a business owner, in fact I'm a massage therapist and I'm coming up on 10 years of being a massage therapist. *insert applause* In the beginning I felt that it was something I wanted to do for the rest of my life, but in 2019 I started to get those old feelings that I would feel for every job, and that was the KEY thing... it started to feel like a job. I already knew at a young age that I was not meant to work for anyone else, because I don't like to be on other people's schedules. That is what my business started to feel like to me. Although I was creating my work schedule, I was still on other people's time. I started my business because I wanted freedom from the 9 to 5 deal, but eventually that feeling started to catch up to me again.
Enter... RONA!!! *dun dun duuuuun* So I had to close my business for like 3.5 months, and in that time, not only did I realize that I LOVE being a housewife lol, but I started to remember how much I love to write, and also just realizing all of the creative ideas that I had swimming in this head of mine. That shutdown was honestly the best peace of mind, and just gave me so much clarity of what I want to do. I knew that this was the next step on my path to take. Starting my massage business helped me to get over my fear of starting a business, and this next step of becoming an ecommerce entrepreneur will give me the full freedom I've been wanting.
Designing my apparel has made me so happy, and I can't wait to see where my creativity will take me!
