We've been printing like mad trying to get orders finished. So many delays and with one man down (he's still in hospital) I ask how many things can go wrong in a small business?
Today I had to laugh when my husband asked me how the day went. Mmm... let me see: the tea-towels were crooked - again, all cut on an angle so I had to sort through those and will be looking for another supplier asap.
The 2nd screen-printing table still hasn't been completed because the Metal Guy is sick this week. My studio telephone/internet connection hasn't happened because it turned out that Telstra has gotten my application wrong and has been sending relevant mail to the Baptist Church across the road.
My son, who was supposed to help us, decided that it was preferable to sleep in and I was advised that the weather is too hot for soap-making so new soaps will be a while coming... not sure if I've forgotten anything?
All is better when I come home to see this smiling face and I can't help but smile back. It's true people, pets do reduce stress! Cuddle a dog or a cat. I love you Zoe!
Oh, and I'm not complaining but I do want readers to know that things do go wrong every day but you soldier on. My biggest tips for business success? Perseverance, problem-solving skills and a sense of humour go a long way.
