Continuing to Step Outside of My Comfort Zone
In light of last week's t-shirt yarn success, I reached out to another local shop owner and crafter who I thought might be interested in the t-shirt yarn. She's someone I know but not well. I hit send on that email last Monday and then waited...and waited...and waited.
I was bummed by the lack of response and then on Friday I got an email back. She was interested! We emailed back and forth regarding her color preferences and then I headed out to the thrift store for supplies.
Once again, I spent the weekend replenishing my supply. This time was definitely easier, as I began to really refine my technique and I felt more confident about the desirability of my product.
But guess what? She bought 8 balls!!!
I guess I'm going to keep trying to push myself outside my comfort zone. I have another local shop in mind to connect with and I'll be making that pitch tomorrow, possibly in person. My fingers are crossed!
my Etsy shop. I finally have enough items to have categories, so I added those today. I'm also trying to become more involved in my local Etsy teams. They are a great source of info. I just need to figure out how much time to devote to everything.
Speaking of time, knowing what you're doing saves a ton of time. I don't know jack about Instagram but I've got a 15 year old who does and he's promised to help his mom get onto Instagram in the near future.
See you next week!
