Oh the agony… my brain is being pulled in several directions. I am loving the fact that I have been using my skills to make nappy cakes and other baby gifts, but I’m going to be honest and admit… where to from here? It can be difficult to work out, especially as a small business owner, how to keep going when the bills are basically costing more than the earnings! I really love Embella, and all that it represents but I’m just not sure about it’s long term viability.
I had the opportunity earlier this year to speak to a life coach (highly recommend it!) who specialises in mums returning to work/career. She helped me to work out exactly what I was feeling and helped me develop a plan as to where to go to from there. So the plan for Embella Blossom is that we’ve got until the end of June to make it a success (enough to pay for itself) or unfortunately it will need to be put down for now. In saying that, I wont be fully shutting up shop – just likely taking the website off live mode, and using social media. I had loved the idea of making this something that would supplement our income while I studied my midwifery… but who knows! We still have a bit of time to go, and you never know what lies around the corner!
Anyways, off to nap while the children nap (and ignore the washing :P)
