What’s Your Why?
“I am aligned mentally, spiritually and physically with my work”.✨
This was my intention for the week. I’m not going to lie, the last two months have been ROUGH. The sheer panic of not being able to do festivals and large events had me wanting to just give up in this little shop. But then, something in me said FIGHT...and that’s what I’ve done.
All the weekly newsletters and blog posts and website updates and live sales and stories that I had been neglecting I spent HOURS every day working on. I don’t know if people realize this but keeping up with an online store is just as much work as brick and mortar...and you know what...all that start work started to pay off....online orders started flowing in and I was making trips to the post office 5 times a week...meeting one on one with customers 3 times a day....dropping off orders and actually putting time into my social media content. I also spent every day in my pop up space organizing and cleaning and unpacking new shipments and acting like I was open to the public and treating that space with love and respect...and it felt so good.
And yes, over the last week or so I saw a dramatic decline in online sales now that the country is starting to open back up....but I myself opened back up to the public last week and threw every bit of energy I had into it....and although the foot traffic and amount of people shopping is not what it usually is this time of year I peddled my wares.
I say all of this because I am in love with my little shop....I carefully hand pick every single eco friendly, ethical, sustainable, fair trade item that comes in here and I revel in watching a woman put a piece from Lotus y la Luna on and light up....that’s why I do what I do....and I honestly believe that when you are mentally, spiritually and physically aligned with your work, it pays off to do the WERK 😜❤️🙏🏻
