But the task itself is far from simple.
In talking with my friend Fancy of Fanciful Devices about how to approach stores that may carry your designs, she said "That makes me sick to my stomach".
But, if we move forward in spite of the sick feelings in our stomach, we may feel the reward of money well earned from our creations.
I am determined to stock several local shops with my some of my new designs but I have to start from scratch here. In spite of having jewelry in stores located around the world; New Zealand, England, Australia, I have never had anyone approach me to sell in their shop here in Florida.
So I have to go to them.
So get your sick bag ready, we are going to to achieve several tasks that will prepare us for approaching shops and boutiques that will want to carry our work.
I have separated the tasks into 4 different blog posts that will be posted every Sunday from May 29th to June 19th.
You will be given step by step instructions in each post. You will be rigorous in your efforts, completing each before the next task. You will feel proud of what you accomplish, in spite of its difficulty.
The end result will be you, entering shops with confidence, a relaxed attitude and positive energy.
Even when you are rejected (and we will be, it is inevitable) you will know you did everything to the best of your ability to present yourself as the gifted, artistic soul you are.
When you have a successful contract with a shop that pays you for your creations, you will feel the reward of financial success.
Most importantly, you will earn more money to buy more supplies with!
I think that is the main driving force behind my creating and selling.
If I didn't sell what I made, I wouldn't have the money to fund future creations.
And then I would crawl into a hole in the ground and die.
So come back on the 29th and we will do this together.
