My heart is overflowing with happiness and joy from all the love and support I just received this morning at my launch party for Virgin Apothecary. It FINALLY feels like all this hard work, time, and money is paying off. There are times I am certain every new business owner says to themselves, "why am I doing this again?" and then there are the times that prove to yourself why you are taking this leap of faith and diving straight into the deep end. JUST DO IT! What do you have to loose? Money? Time? You'll loose those eventually anyway so why don't you just go for it? You never know if you don't try. These are constant thoughts I've had running through my brain the past few months.
YES IT IS TOTALLY WORHT IT. And today proved that to me.
My launch party was beyond incredible! I couldn't of imagined it going any better. SO thankful for everyone that came out and supported me. It means so so much! Ya'll don't even know. Most of all thank you to my mother and sister who spent hours of their time to help me get this party together and helping me host such a wonderful event I could NOT have done it without you!
With all of this going on I am STILL trying to get my website up. For the people who know me, know that Virgin Apothecary is mostly a one woman production with serious help from coerced family members (positively speaking). With that being said I want to just explain why my web site store is being disabled at the moment. I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FLIP I'M DOING.... This is my first website I've built in my life so this weekend I am getting some serious time in with this computer and learning the ropes of e-commerce. Also did I mention I work 5-6 shifts a week as a server on top of producing and formulating and designing all of my products? Yeah that too...... Time is tight y'all and I just wanted to say that I am doing the best I can to get my website up and running 100% but just please stick with me because I am kind of a perfectionist and I just want it to be perfect for you all!
Anyway thank you all for the constant support in helping me actualize my dream! It is all coming together and I couldn't be more proud of myself! So much love...
