It was exactly 14 years ago, this week, that I started my own Ceramic Hand & Foot Impressions business. I was very inspired to get my business up and running and FAST. I wanted to be ready for the holidays, you know these keepsakes are perfect for gifts. ;)
I worked my buns off. I practiced a lot. I made impressions of my kids and all my friends kids and anyone who would let me take an impression of them. I was bound and determined to get my business going.
I signed up for my first Holiday show in November of 2000. It was only 6 weeks after I officially started practicing.
I started before I was ready.
I remember signing up for the Holiday event before I had even done too many impressions. But I was so excited and I knew I could do it.
I am a person who needs a deadline and I knew if I committed to something........I would have to show up!
Did I have the perfect booth, art work, and branding? No
Was I completely confident in my abilities? No
Was I scared out of my mind?!!! YES
I did it anyway. I showed up and officially launched my business. It felt so good. I got my first, real, PAYING customers. I was so happy!
It felt so good. I was so proud of myself and my little Hand & Footprint business. It was the start of one of the best decisions of my life.
