bye bye Room with a Past

Well I am really venturing out and said bye to Room as it's not comfortable for Susan to have me doing something similiar and work there too. No hard feelings, I have had a good time at Room, I will continue to go there, I can always get a spot back and it was a great experience. I went to the studio last week and brought more stuff, had lunch with Jeannie who runs "Inside Benicia" magazine and I will be putting an ad in the Dec issue. Getting the little things done bit by bit, need to get a website so I can post the items in the store on it and then people can shop without even leaving their homes!!! The way of the future....This is good practice for me, I need to be more computer savvy and learn how to post photos, edit etc....So much to learn but it's all good!!

Back to Biz

Looks like I am venturing out into the world of business all on my own, I know about the creative side but the business side is an uphill road of many twists and turns. I will trudge ahead and take it as it comes. Today I brought more stuff to Benicia, my days at Room with a Past are done but I will stay in touch with the place as I love it so. Just not going to work to keep my feet in both places and I want to explore Hip Chick's in Benicia. I'm struggling with a schedule as I don't want to be tied down and yet I know if I intend to sell things people will want to know when I'm open.....these are the big decisions I need to consider now that I'm a store owner.....That and how to post pictures, get a website, business cards, a sign for the front, a business license and the list goes on. But don't fret dear reader I will do it and by golly I will be victorious!!! How dramatic!! Let us (me and who ever is reading this) stay tuned to see how this all works out...............
