Here’s the deal: working for yourself isn’t easy. Some days it can be extremely difficult. As small business creatives, crafters, and makers, it can be easy to allow yourself to fall into a slump both mentally and physically. Constantly coming up with a fresh spin on your products while maintaining boundaries with how much you work can be hard to figure out. On top of all this, negativity often sneaks in. And negativity is SO sneaky. Learning how to fight negativity can also be tricky.
Being grateful and positive. These are just a couple of things I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. It’s something our team talks about and what we each of us strive to do in our work and personal lives. This is often much easier said than done (at least where I’m concerned). It’s so easy to get caught up in the negative stuff that’s happening instead of staying rooted in what’s positive. Positivity and gratefulness take intention. Intentional thought and planning are important for so many areas in our lives, especially where our businesses are concerned.
Marmalead keeps it simple. It’s our pleasure to serve the Etsy community with integrity and the highest quality products on the market. Have you heard less is more? That’s what Marmalead stands for. The internet is a distracting place. There’s a ton of opportunity out there, yet many shops are still failing. Why is that? It’s because they’re chasing things that don’t matter and focusing on the wrong details.
