Day 3: My Business

This will be short and sweet, so those of you who feel I have written a novel the past few days, I’m sorry!

I’m making my business a focus because this is a gift from God I feel I need to nurture and care for. MaggieMoo Designs kind of created itself, and since it started running February 10, 2008, it has been a constant source of success for me! I started off making a set of items, and since then I have eliminated some and added some different ones. I have created crap, and have created masterpieces. I think everything I have done has been a constant improvement, based on my thinking that there is always room to make it better.

I feel MMD is going to be a steady route to some extra income when we move into the phase of a one income family. I think all this time of growing it NOW is only preparing me to run it full time when the time comes.

I want to promise to myself to never let the fire I have for it die. I have sold well over 100 of my own handmade creations, and I want the 1,000th to feel just as successful and exciting! I want to be committed to keeping my books straight. I want to be frugal ALWAYS at watching for deals and saving where I can. I want to improve on every single item I make. I want to be able to resolve issues with grace and courtesy that will make the customer trust me a second time around.

Who knows? One day I may have a boutique storefront of my own. ;)

UPDATE: Just a few minutes after typing this, I got a message from a customer. This is precisely why I feel the way I do about MMD. I just got a voicemail from a recent customer who sent her own fabric for 2 nursing covers. She left me a message saying hot cute they turned out and wants me to make more nursing covers! Little blessings like that keep me going...... Thank you God!

1 Chronicles 4:10
Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, "Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain." And God granted his request.
