If you feel compelled to keep making stuff , at some point you may need to find an outlet for your work . On -line selling seemed to be a perfect fit for me . I could run my "shop " however I liked, whenever I liked .My market place would be the Whole World !!! Best of all, I could do all this at home in my comfy clothes ...coffee cup in hand !!!
Somewhere along the line, I realized I might even make a profit !!!
Perhaps there was a pot of gold at the end of the inter-net rainbow!
I suppose I do work hard at my little bead business. I devote many hours to making and merchandising.
But, it never really feels like work ! I Loved the making part before I started selling .The merchandising part turns out to be more like a series of "executive lunches" ...lots great time spent chatting and sharing with other Beadie people. I also spend a lot of time checking out other shops ,web sites and blogs.
Wonder of wonders , I DO make sales and I DO make some money
But , Profit ????
I guess I could make a little profit . But ,while I'm checking out the competition or searching for inspiration,I keep seeing wonderful things I "need"!
Paypal puts some Gold in the pot, I hit "buy now" and out it goes !!!
So is my pot at the end of the Rainbow empty ???
Not at all !!! It is filled with friendships and fun !
Countless Golden hours spent learning ,sharing and creating !
I believe there is a true pot of Gold at the end of my inter-net Rainbow !!!
What's at the end of your personal Rainbow ?
this week take a moment to count your ''Gold "
