So today I opened up a fortune cookie. It said, "You are capable, competent, creative, careful. Prove it." Pressure, much? :)
Normally, I wouldn't read too much into it. But with how my shop is doing, I agree! I am capable, I'm getting more confident, I feel more creative than ever, and I'm just careful enough to be good. :) And darn it, I'm proving it! LOL
My goal was to sell about 15 items a month. At this month I am one week past 3 months and I have reached 50 sales! I am ecstatic. I have found that you get out of it what you put in. If I spend an hour on the computer every night relisting and hanging out in the forums, I usually make a sale. If I don't...well, I don't! :) I have to love a business that is like that. I have definitely had jobs that didn't give me the return I put in! Anyway, life is good. :) Thanks for sharing it with me. :)
Oh, and my in-laws loved the tree! I think I even saw a tear. SCORE!
