Holidays and Business!
The subject of this week's blog, which is late again, is holidaying and business. How do you do it when competing with the big box stores that have millions of dollars behind them? That is, open 24/7 regardless of the holiday? I will tell you how:
"I won't! I am not going to give up my family time for the pursuit of money."
Now this doesn't mean I won't work diligently on my business dreams. I put in some kick ass hours. I work full time, manage a family and am building Karma Baskets and Gifts! This is not a complaint. But, the holidays are tough. Guests, travel, friends, libation! How did I fit it in? I didn't!
Of course, as years progress and business grows, you put in time during the holidays, I get it. But my goal is to set expectations ahead of time so it isn't my entire life. I am going to try to structure this quest as a conscious lifestyle brand. I don't want it to ever be all about the money!
I did keep an eye on Instagram, Facebook, the social media choices for me. But that is not really only about business. I truly enjoy reading and getting to know the people on these forums! So many interesting and like minded people! I just love that I have this "social" going on in my life! And I can attend from anywhere! Yeah, I love this dance card! (Kinda showing my age here, but really that is a mom quote, not my personal experience! And I always wanted to use it in my conversation! :))
"There is no way that I will ever be able to keep up with the big box stores! And I won't try!"
My goals for Karma Baskets and Gifts are lofty! I want to create a great business that contributes to the community! I want to create a business that will support my family! I want to create a business that promotes love and the Divine Spirit! And if I ever am able to employ people, it will be a bitching place to work! I don't want schedules that prohibit life and family. I want Karma Baskets and Gifts to be a family too!
"I believe that the Holy Spirit is everywhere. I believe that each of us are in touch with the Divine, and if we are open to it, we will be guided! WE CAN ALL BE LIGHTWORKERS!"
So I will do my damndest to promote this belief. I will do my best to build something that is a testimony of the Spirit that is all around us! Karma Baskets and Gifts will be a force of love and caring, whilst being a successful business too!
Team Positive Energy!
