Sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone and try something new.
When I opened my Etsy store I was stepping out of my comfort zone. Up until then I just sold (or gave) my t-shirts to friends, or sold them to daycares. Then I decided I needed to step it up and Etsy was there at the right time and provided the incentive I needed to start selling.
Then around Christmas time I decided that I was going to open a Dawanda store. And again I stepped out of my comfort zone to try that.
Now a new opportunity has presented itself. Not long ago, Sarah from 90210 Organics contacted me and asked me if I would be interested in selling through them. 90210 Organics is located in Beverly Hills and the attraction was definitely there. But I had never sold through a store before and that was definitely stepping out of my comfort zone. But sometimes you have to take a chance and see where it will take you. Professionally and personally.
So, there you have it. I have a feeling that this year will be filled with professional and personal challenges. I think I'm up for it.
