So, after all the worrying, late nights, extra grey hairs, and long to do lists I made the first week! So happy and very proud of myself. How did it go? Well, unlike a shop when you open the shop door for the grand launch with balloons outside and all the fuss, customers do generally come. Even if they don’t buy anything and they come inside just because they are nosey, they still have a little wonder. With an online boutique, its somewhat different. In fact very, very different. You need to view your analytics to see if you have any visitors. Anyway talking about the ins and outs of running an online boutique is for another blog.
What have I learnt? I have learnt that you cant do everything, Its perfectly ok that you aren’t able to do everything. Super Women does not exist! We all have our weaknesses and it takes strength to be able to identify what they are and to bring people on board who strengths are your weaknesses. I did, it helped tremendously. Not only does the person have expertise within the chosen field but Im able to brainstorm with another person. I was able to articulate my vision and they were not only able to buy into it but work closely with me to make it happen. As a single mum of 2 Im used to doing things on my own, not asking for help or relying on anybody else. However what I am doing is building a team of expertise around me. As a team we can all grow is what I have learnt!!
Enjoy your weekend.
