Get free...

Those of you who have been reading my blog since 2008 (when it was originally named Brace Yourself Boutique Blog) may have noticed the various transformations this business has undergone.  Recently I changed the name of my business to Bohemian Spirit, but prior to that I've made several changes in several areas. I had 3 different websites, 2 logo's, 4-5 color schemes, and the list goes on (all within 2 years of being in business). Lol!  I've also participated in numerous and costly trade and vendor shows trying to find myself...or my business self.  Owning BSJ has been one of the most unbelievable journey's, and I have learned so much along the way.  There were many moments of self-doubt and days when I just wanted to shut down my business.  When I think back on the reasons I was ready to quit, it really shakes me up.  I thought because no one was buying my jewelry, no one was reading my blog (that I was pouring my heart into), no one was commenting on my jewelry posts on facebook, no one, no one, no one!!!!....you get the picture right?  I never officially shut down my business, but I definitely shut down inside.  My creativity was thrown off, and I couldn't understand why everyone else was persevering and not me. Basically I was throwing myself a pity party, and no one was attending that either!  If this story resonates with any of you, please continue to read because I'm going to explain to you how I got out of this rut, and what I did to uplift myself, and began to realize how to move forward.

I'll be posting more tomorrow, so please stop by for the rest of the story.  To be continued........ :)

  2. I will definitely be reading your story because I could use some uplifting and an encouraging story right about now! I'm currently facing the exact same situation with my business, but I know that in the end I will overcome it.

  3. Often people watch quietly and without much noise. Myisha, in my own quest, I have learned that it is important to not put so much emphasis on what others are doing.
