The Bumps in the Road

2018-Wanderbrush-Blog-Post.jpg

Can you all believe January is almost over?? Seems like 2018 just started, but we are already whizzing into the year. I know it has been quite a while since my first post. I have been struggling with keeping up with the demands it takes to run a business. You guys, it is HARD. I have so much admiration and respect for those BOSSES out there running their own thing and keeping at it every day.

There have been a lot of hard lessons that I am facing as I venture into this new thing I have never experienced before. I will admit that when I launched my website, it felt like a load off my shoulders, I had accomplished a major goal and my business was hitting the ground. But, I did something I shouldn’t have: I slacked off and backed off. I felt like I needed to rest and take a breather before continuing onto the next steps. But, you guys, this is not the best thing to do when you are trying to get your business off the ground and get the word out! It basically is the worst thing you can do, go silent after launching. I’ll say I didn’t completely disappear, but I definitely did not keep my presence up the way I should have. So, one of my goals for 2018 is to put more focus and dedication towards Wanderbrush.

I want to take this time as well to thank every one of you who gave me feedback thus far on my website, my Instagram, Facebook, etc. I truly appreciate all of the suggestions as it really helps me see what my audience is looking for, and how I can better provide you all with great services and great content! I want to point out to those starting their own thing that feedback is great and helpful, but at the same time, you don’t have to take every piece of advice and change what you are doing to please every person. Really take a look at that feedback, and sort through it, does it make sense for you and your business? You can really get bogged down with everyone’s suggestions, thinking you have to make every single change that was advised to you. Be smart about that advice! Which ones are truly going to help your business move forward versus the ones that are just personal preference? It can be challenging, but I think it’s a good thing to do. With that said, I am grateful for the wonderful feedback and the encouragement from my greatest supporters. Thank you for wanting to see me succeed! I hope that the lessons I’ve learned along the way can help someone out there experiencing similar situations. Here’s to 2018 and being a BOSS!

With love, Sapphira
