Got this idea from another blogger, and testing it to see how it works with my hair. Updates coming soon.
May!! That’s where we are right now in 2013!! May!!
Well, at least the sun is finally showing itself. What a beautiful day we are having!!! *people living in the East Coast of Canada know what I mean*
To everyone reading my blog, thank you for taking the time to do so.
Last month, I participated in a challenge for Poetry Month. It was fun, exciting, and definitely challenging. That experience has ignited my desire to do more for myself and my business.
So I decided to look for more challenges 🙂
First, I took on the challenge posted by whoissugar, a blogger/youtubber/justawesomesauceness person online. She posted the “requirements” on her instagram (look for april 29th).
Second, I have decided to work with a business consultant closer to home, and I am so excited and looking forward to working with her. Updates will be followed.
Lastly, I am preparing to do an informal launch of something I have been working on over the few months. Woo hoooo!!
I hope everyone is doing well, and enjoying themselves in a safe and secure way.
A batch of something special
I am so stressed right now, or i should say, I am feeling quite overwhelmed at the moment.
Ok, maybe let’s recap (in no order whatsoever):
– I have “created” a product that will help clients with their hair problems
– I have registered a business name
– A logo and a label has been created for me
– Spoken randomly to people about said product
– Selected a couple of people who I feel will benefit from said product
– Put recipe together, tested texture, consistency, and result on my household
– Sent out samples to selected clients
– Received very positive feedback
– Got requests to have products sold in salons
Now you would think, Oh wow, That’s great. But still, I feel something is missing.
As if continuing this process will result in extreme failure, and I don’t think I can emotionally handle that right now.
However, there are some things I wish to do, but my perfectionism is surfacing again, and no matter how many times I try to push past it, I am still feeling as though it is not good enough.
It is though!!! It is good enough. People like the product, they were happy with the results, and they are asking for more info about it.
They want more, so why am I not giving it to them?
What if they are just saying that to be nice? And because it was free?
What if ……What if??
You can do it. I know you can. Just go ahead, stop over thinking, and just GO!!!!!
I’ve been working on something for a few months now, and recently, I sent out samples to different people. What’s interesting about my selection of “testers” are the differences in needs, locations, expectations, and textures.
The feedback has been positive so far.
Once I get full reports from the “testers”, it will push the launch in a great direction.
I am very happy to know this, for this is a direction I didn’t expect to take. It is funny how things can turn around.
However, who am I to question where God wishes to take my life? Taking it a step/day at a time and trusting that everything will work out is what I need to continue to do.
