So as some of you may know or not know. I got really excited and motivated on the idea of opening my own shop and starting my own business. Boy let me tell you that passion is still there but, I have to seriously reassess and reconsider how I do this. I've got a look down and the passion but, after doing a lot of research and more research I've realized I don't really have \one really strong bread winning product. I have many products and projects but nothing to sustain me financially. If I'm going to be working from home I have to be able to pay the bills.
I love making crafts and jewelry among many things...but is that what my business wants to be about? I've had trouble pegging a consistent product. (I would still like to offer the items I've made to anyone who'd like to purchase them so I'll post a special blog post so we can work something out)
I've been living and breathing marketing research lately and have found I need a stronger product,
and maybe even a stronger message... When I left my part-time retail job I started a blog "NOPLANB," the purpose was to document my life unemployed in New York (if you go back in my posts you can locate those stories, I merged that blog into this one)
I backed away because I was marketing myself all over the place and had more than one brand of "me" that I was trying to sell. I think I can do all that on this blog. I can share me as well as my art, music and my career journey.
I hope you're well and feeling encouraged in whatever your endeavor.

This is just a little something that got me motivated to start thinking a bit more strategically. If the video helps pay it forward share it with like minded people.
