Hey, everyone! Having a business is a constant learning process. You do things right; you do things wrong but you learn either way. Sometimes learning means going after what you want and doing what you need to do to improve your brand/business.
I read A LOT of posts and articles about making your business work, things you can improve, driving sales, etc. Besides the amount of information I read, it's A LOT to take in and process and can be somewhat overwhelming. Can I get an, "I hear ya," on that from my fellow business owners and bloggers? Sometimes I get frustrated with myself and my business because I can't get my sales to be consistent or sell anything at all, and I'm all like, "what am I doing wrong????!!!!" I go over everything in my head: I have a blog, website, Twitter, Instagram, Etsy, Facebook, aftcra (definitely check it out makers!), Pinterest; I post regularly to all of them....what am I not doing? Had to vent a little there, but I feel like it's a common thing among small business owners.
I'm always doing some sort of class or webinar to learn and tweak various things. Things are always changing in the small business, social media, and blogging world, so in addition to learning, I'm trying to keep up with all the little changes here and there. Currently, I'm working on Wonderlass's "The Strong Brand" mini course. I've noticed my brand is lacking a little, and I need to get some consistency between my accounts, so I thought this would be a good fit for me. I love her site---it's so colorful and full of really good info! This is her first mini course (and it's free btw), and I'm already really impressed with it. She has worksheets, slides, video, and a link to her "Be Your Brand" workbook. I printed it all out because I love having something to write on!
So, I'm sure you're wondering why I'm posting this, so I'm going to tell you :) Since I'm working on my brand, I need YOUR help. If you could take a minute of your time and leave me a comment with 3 words that describe my brand, I'd be really appreciative. I want to make sure everyone is getting the same feeling. You can look at the blog and/or my Etsy shop (here) to get ideas! Thanks for reading and a huge thank you in advance for the comments--I look forward to reading them!!!
