Tomorrow is national boss day. A day to appreciate your boss. Or for others a day to look at their boss and be like another day with you telling me what to do. Well I am glad that I am my own boss and here is why.
I never imagined that I would be my own boss one day. I always dreamed of it though. Putting my own schedule and having my own business but I always thought that it would just be one of those things that would never happen. I am truly glad that it happened though.
Another reason I like being my own boss it's cause I can use my own creativity and learn from my own experience and mistakes. It's hard to make a mistake and get stuck in a pickle but it's an awesome feeling when you have managed to find a way to work your way out of each mistake and get a better outcome than before.
Owning your own jewelry shop comes with it's pros and cons. Working with new materials and trying to find styles and ideas is a constant work in progress. Always trying to flow with the fashion trend to stay on top of things. Figuring out how to manage your finances and how to build your own website. It's hard work but it also builds a sense of pride when the final product is finished.
My favorite part is planning. I love taking some time to just sit down with a cup of coffee, my planner, and all my colored pens and start planning my month away. I usually color code everything in my planner so that way I know what to do each day. Like school reminders will be in purple and shop reminders are pink. Doctor appointments are in red. I feel like color coding everything just makes it easier for me to find it in the future and stay more organized... plus its fun to see a colorful planner every day.
Besides some colorful monthly planning I also like to go a few times a week to the beach to look for sea glass. I mean who doesn't like to go to the beach with your kids to walk around and find tons of treasures. I also like to take a few pieces of jewelry to the beach to take some cute pictures of them while I am out at a gorgeous beach scene.
If I had a boss I would most likely be stuck doing things they wanted me to do, working hourly, and having to pay for daycare, meaning spending hours each day away from my husband, daughters, and pups but being my own boss means having a flexible schedule and being able to work around your own "stay at home mom" schedule which is great. Plus no having to pay for day care which is a big plus for seeing how expensive day care can come out to be. If you have an awesome crafty idea or have a crafty hobby and want to make some money then I highly recommend trying to sell your items. I started out with friends a family and then through my Facebook and Instagram page and now I have my own Etsy shop. Go for it. Determination is always key!
