The Business Side

I don’t know what it is, but it seems like lately the business side of my jewelry business is taking more time than in the past.  And maybe it’s a good thing.  After all, any business needs tending to and while I would love to spend all of my waking hours making jewelry, I can’t.  Because unless I’m going to stockpile it, I need to get it sold.  And truthfully, I want the pieces to be worn by women who love them and who feel beautifully accessorized when they put a special piece on.

So, what’s all this business stuff?  Handling email and social networks – Twitter, Flickr, FaceBook to name a few.  Packing and shipping orders.  Dealing with books and record-keeping.  Taking inventory and ordering supplies.  Dealing with totally unglamorous but necessary stuff like sales tax and insurance.  All of these things and more are necessary to keep my business alive and growing.

I am ready to get back to jewelry however.

    Thank you for visiting my blog today. I really enjoyed visiting yours. The earrings in this post are gorgeous. I know what you mean about the business side eating up huge hunks of your time. Its hard to find the right balance.
