Goodbye 2015, Welcome 2016 and Your Endless Opportunities!!
January 4, 2016
It seems that 2016 will be a year of surprises and opportunities!!
Never did I imagine when I had an idea last year in January 2015 to start a home decor and accessories store that things would progress so quickly.
In January last year I decided my New Year's resolution was going to be to launch my own business by the time I was 30. I knew right away I wanted it to be a home decor and accessories business that would be a blend of new and old, but what I didn't know is what my name was going to be, what events I would be doing, how I was going to make a profit, etc.
So in the months that followed I ; got my LLC license, thought of a name, registered my name, created a website, ordered inventory, researched similar businesses to create a business startup plan and then that brought us to August and the idea to try and actually launch our 1st Show in October!!
I had no idea it would be so much work!! I am grateful for all of my friends and family that helped me through this terrifying 1st experience!! Long nights, long days, paint, price tags and we were ready!!
It was better than I had ever hoped!!
Excited and exhilarated by this experience I was on a high, I wanted to keep going, keep doing; I never wanted it to stop!! So I reached out to local businesses to collaborate events for 2016!! Luckily for me, Modern Craft Winery of Au Gres was more than willing to support me and my business!! Together we came up with our "Wine and Wander" event which we scheduled for January 16th, 2016!!
They were generous enough not just to give me a space for the event but to let me utilize the WHOLE STORE!!! WHAT!?! How cool is that!! Not only did I get to fill their WHOLE STORE but I also got to come early and set up the window displays for the event!! AMAZING!! Never once in 2015 did I think I would be setting up window displays and filling an entire store with inventory for an event in only a year’s time!!
WOW!! I am overloaded with thankfulness and have truly been blessed by such amazing friends, family and fans to make all of this possible in a year’s time!!
The sky is the limit for this girl, can't wait to see all that is waiting for us in 2016!!!
