Why I Write List

I must say that I have never really been a list maker.  Of course I will use a list for grocery shopping  or for Christmas.  But other than that, it just wasn’t something I did.  I have a pretty good memory, so I would have the list in my mind  of what I needed to do and I would generally get everything done .  But when it comes to starting a business, that’s a whole different game.  So I started writing things down. This may sound obvious,but for me it is a big deal.  My list are a little random.  Okay, really random.    But, hey it works for me and it my work for you if you generally  don’t use a list.

Here We Go Again

I must admit that blogging is not my thing. But I have decided to give it another go. I haven’t written anything in a very long time. I ‘m starting again because I am starting a new business.  My previous business was handmade hair care products that I made with natural ingredients and made for naturally curly hair.

Even though I wasn’t selling product any more I was still making it for my own use. That’s what I loved about my previous business was making the product. I was already making a body butter, but then I tried lip balm. It came out great. Well I’m not buying lip balm again. I gave some to friends and they loved it. Then I gifted some sugar body scrub, and the was a hit too. Hey…I maybe on to something here 🙂 That was the beginning of my second business, Simply Lux Bath & Body and this blog. So what will I be blogging about? It will be a little bit of everything I think. Right now I’m working on setting up my Etsy shop again. Figuring out how to market the business in a way that will work for me. I still work a full-time job, so the marketing strategy will be key. Packaging, labeling and how […]
