Is there anybody out there?
As if a business start up isn’t its own labyrinth, I’ve got to figure out this marketing on-line thing. It’s hard and uncertain work. And I am not a stranger to working hard but I’ve noticed a curious thing about what motivates me. Perhaps I’ve also stumbled upon the business part I can one day farm out.
I love designing. In fact, I can’t stop designing and constructing Kitschy Chic bags. I am filled with ideas and inspiration. While I have a rudimentary marketing plan, I really have no idea why I keep at it. I don’t have a store front to watch the bags fly off the shelves. They sell well enough but there is no direct correlation between production and sales at this time to tell me how viable the business will be in the long term. The motivation that drives me makes no real sense: nothing that I could explain in a logical way. It is just purely a kind of bliss. For now, I think I will ride the wave of bliss, hope and inspiration. Everything else feels over-rated. In the meantime, I’ll keep making bags and writing about what it feels like 🙂
