Wow! Well,Christmas took me by surprise!
The great thing about starting out in a new business venture is learning how to manage the daily challenges that come along with it, accepting that you'll make mistakes and things won't always go to plan, but using it all as a learning curve to help you improve and be more confident in the future!
I honestly hadn't appreciated just how busy the Christmas period would be for me, not just in terms of sales, but also making and ordering enough stock to fulfil my commitments to the online shop and also the Christmas Fayres and Markets I had booked into.
I spent lots of late nights and any spare time I had making products to sell,but can honestly say it was well worth it for the positive response I received from happy customers! This year I've vowed to start preperation even earlier!!
