there's no place like home

Yes, yes, I'm still alive. Sorry for the lack of posts lately. Please be patient with me while I try not to freak out over the next few weeks.

Things are off. I'm stressed. I'm confused. I'm completely uninspired. I'm in a weird place in life right now and I'm trying my hardest to get myself together to sort everything out...where to go, what to do. Sales absolutely suck at the shop, which automatically makes me question whether or not I made the right decision to open this place at all. Talk about bad timing! I know I'm not the only one suffering here. Lots of little places are struggling too, unfortunately, but it kills me sit here every day and wait for a small miracle. Money is running out, and I won't even touch on my lack of patience. Ahh, yes, what to do. I have some major decisions to make relatively soon if things don't turn around. We shall see.

I'd do anything for a little peace of mind right now.

I've been there and can totally relate on the business front. My first piece of advice is NEVER EVER stay open if you have to use your own money to pay for things like rent, utilities, etc. We did it and I highly regret it.

I'm still in a bit of a funk a year later, not sure what to do with myself half of the time. Know that you are not alone!

peace out.

Have you considered adding a section to your shop's web page where people can order on-line?

Awwwww...that feeling sucks! Without sounding TOO motivational here, while you can't control the outside crappy economy, you can control what you're doing about it. You seem to be a creative and motivated girl (after all, I don't really know you), so try and take your angst and put it into some aggressive marketing efforts. Your shop is a little gem that, perhaps, just needs a loud voice behind it so that it's discovered by more people. Sending you some positive vibes!
