I knew for quite some time that changes were coming. I felt the shift long before the idea actually came to my mind, but I never shared what was going on. Then, a couple weeks ago I was talking to my friend Katrice about it and she put the words together perfectly. This transition is organic. It isn’t forced or something catastrophic, it just happened.
You are probably wondering what transition I am talking about. I am closing Shop ICB.
A couple of days ago, I shared my humbling experience with you. Today, I am sharing my month with you. November 2013 will be a month to remember years from now. It was that beautiful, crazy, exciting month filled with so much.
With our big announcement coming up, I am excited and nervous at this very moment of what I am about to do with my life. However, Paulo Coehlo said ” If you’re brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.” This is something that has been in the works since the earlier part of the year. Now, it’s actually taking place and my mind is racing. I am happier than ever, so I am now taking the right steps in the right direction to achieve my goals.
I am currently sitting at my desk “smizing”, as Tyra Banks says. In the last week I have experienced all types of emotions. Ultimately, a roller coaster ride has turned into a humbling experience. Sometimes we have to be stripped of everything, so that He can build us up bigger and better. I am at that point now.
It’s only a couple of days before I do my monthly recap of what it’s like to be a business owner, but I thought I would go even more personal today. So, if you don’t mind, I am digging deeper into what it is like to be a business owner.
There are millions of people trying their hand at the blogging world and that number is growing more and more every day. This means, as a business owner, you should be blogging just as much as everybody else in order to stay in the game. Some business owners, and you might be one of them, think that there just isn’t anything to blog about. However, in the same way that there are different niches, like lifestyle or fashion blogs, there is a niche just for you: business blogging!
Today, we will be talking about a very important part of business: product photos. Product photos help a small business make a sale online (however a buy is not dependent on the product photo and it can actually depend on a number of factors including SEO, marketing, social media and much more). However, having a good product photo is essential because people have to see a product before they make a buy. Think about it, when you go into a store, think about how many times you touch and ogle over those shoes, that blazer, or that new statement necklace. Online shopping makes it harder for the potential customer to fiddle, flirt and try on the product, so they expect great photos. Here’s how to make your photos professional and buy worthy! But wait, there’s more!
The typical blog post title “What I Wore” is really what you write when you can not think of some witty SEO friendly blog post title. Alas, I find myself at this place. Right now I am in the midst of launching three other websites for clients plus doing other things such as planning a new direction for my companies. So, today I am going to just share what I wore on my not so typical friday last week.
