Ok so I’ve overcome the first hurdle…… actually biting the bullet and placing my first wholesale order to pressing the ‘GO LIVE’ button on the website. Next was getting that first order and hoping and preying that everything worked as it should and people were able to successfully order on my website…… I still cant quite get my head around that…. MY WEBSITE! So the first order came in and it worked, thank the lord. After that I started to believe a little, but only a little.
Slowly but surely the orders started to flow thru and I started to believe that bit more every time I got an order notification. People were liking and sharing on social media and the business name was getting around. My nerves started to settle and I started to see that I was doing the right thing. My family are constantly encouraging me and telling me to just go for it, so that’s what I’m doing, just going for it!
Baring in mind I still have a normal ‘day’ and ‘night’ job along side of running Newlyn Maids, I felt under a lot of pressure to make it work. As well as being ‘Mum’ and ‘Wife’ I’ve now suddenly found myself being a business owner…..scary!
So things are going well and I cant thank the people who have supported us enough, weather its a share on social media, an order thru the website or simple mention to a friend, it all helps to build this little business, it all helps towards building a future for our family.
I am always thinking of fresh ideas, new products and new ways to push the business. At the minute everything is based online and I think that’s sensible given the current economic climate and the ever-increasing rise in online shopping. It doesn’t stop me thinking about having somewhere where people can actually look at our products and see them in the flesh thou.
