When Things Seem Down the Only Way to Look is Up

So I tend to err on the side of optimism but there are times when you can’t help feel disheartened. 

I did sell some garments at the East London Urban Makers pop-up but not enough to break even, which is always disappointing.  

However rather than fall down in to the proverbial sea of pity I decided to focus on being solution focussed and think about the way I need to move forward. I did allow for a bit of sadness though, it is always good to give space to every emotion. 

What needs to happen is - me. I need to get seriously focused instead of resting on my laurels and thinking things will come to me. They are not and why would they? Business takes work and I need to stop cruising. Focus on my mission of reaching out.  

Easter is on the horizon so there are no excuses.

So the next exciting thing is happening this Saturday. Another pop-up event in Hoxton, so keeping it East but with a different crowd potentially?

Tickets are available via Event Bright... bottomless prossecco brunch and supporting us female entrepreneurs would be amazingly appreciated. 

Hope to see you there  -> Number 177,

More Reaching out ~ Ouch!

This post is going to be short and sweet as I need to go back to my list of potential contacts who may be able to help me raise the profile of my brand.  

But more importantly inspire traffic to my website where sales are generated. 

I believe people need to see the value in the brand and maybe the narrative is not enough or maybe it is but it needs validation from someone who also believes it???  

I need to keep remembering why I started this brand. It is a lonely path by myself. Exposure is key. As is the platform. Keep focussed.

Anyway, good news. The Urban Makers East have had their rental agreement extended for a week so that’s good news.

I checked today to see if I had sold any garments and there have been some garments sold, which I am happy about, fingers crossed for more.
