This is going to sound odd, but during the rare times at work when things are pretty slow and I’m caught up on projects, I tend to daydream about my business and my future plans for it. Which always gets me pumped! I’ll start researching different ideas and materials to use in my cosmetics, I start looking at forums and answering questions about hair and skin. Its not only helping the person who asked, but its therapeutic for me. It keeps my mind lubricated and ideas flowing. It keeps me in touch with people with other textures of hair and the problems they have and it keeps me researching. The pursuit to be a hair guru never stops! Not for a second!
When I decided to take a leap and seriously consider starting my cosmetic line, formulating wasn’t a problem, that’s what I do at my day job and what I do even when I am at home. It was just the idea of putting products out there for the world to see, use and critique. Don’t get me wrong, I and not afraid of criticism, it gives me the opportunity to improve my products… but to just prepare my mind for hundreds of people to do it! WOW. It was difficult for me to wrap my head around.. but, me being the determined Taurus I am, I shoved the insecurities in the back of my head and prepared for the plunge. And here I am a whole year later ready to open an etsy account and get this thang started!!!
I am glad you are here to witness the ride of my life!
