I finally went LIVE

I did it! I went Live on Facebook. Three times in one day to be exact!  

I was all nerves. I had kept putting it off to the next day, to the next. Then I said to myself “Do it Now!”. I needed to show off my handmade products. People needed to see it in real time since I am an online shop. I already had my hair and makeup done, so there was no excuse. I was even sporting a Curlie Girlie T-shirt from another mompreneur and friend Necee from U Got Me Twisted Apparel. It was Small Business Saturday after all! I had to give her a shout out because she helped me motivate me to get in shape with doing 60 jumping jacks in one minute and getting my business officially launched. She encouraged me to take the step and start sharing what I do and livestream it. We actually met on Periscope a few years ago. I actually was going Live talking to people all over the world and sharing my stories daily. But I had taken a break from doing it because it was taking over my life and I had to get life in order and balance. So I stopped. 

So now that my life is in better order I feel drawn to do it more and keep life balanced. It feels great. Sharing my passion and all about it. I am overly critical of myself however. I lost my thoughts at the worst time but I kept going and I still received great feedback from my followers. It was a good day and I did great and accomplished another goal.

Now to do this more often. I’m ready!

Buying Local

I love supporting small businesses. Especially when I get to know the owners. It makes the purchase that much sweeter. Shopping at the local farmers markets are great ways to shop small and support the community. 

Getting fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs.  Farm fresh meats, and cheeses. Handmade soaps and natural body butters. You can get it all at the farmers market. 

One of my goals is to vendor at my local farmers market in 2018! I can’t wait. 

Remember to shop small this Saturday!
