Well, I'm back at it and ready to share the thoughts of the day.
Today is Friday and it is usually a jewelry business workday for me. Actually, I try to do something everyday but the bulk usually falls on Friday and Saturday when my husband is home to watch the kids. On these workdays, it is typical to find me in my pajamas until 2pm, when I break from work and get ready for the day. I'm usually napping by 3pm and back to business again after dinner and into the late night (for me that is about 10pm).
I have adjusted my work schedule recently to accomodate for the added daily duties in having an online store (yeah!) . I'm on the computer daily checking the activities in my Etsy shop (http://www.mamamaybornedesigns.etsy.com/), uploading items to my regular website (http://www.maybornedesigns.com/) and now blogging! All of this has got me spending additional time doing research and promotions for my product line and boosting my presence on the web. If I'm going to be a famous jewelry designer someday, I've got to get the word out... right?!
However, I'm still seeking to balance the business side of things with actual time spent designing and creating. I think I've got a few ideas on that and you'll have to come again to see what my plans are.
