I'm launching this whole thing from the ground up and it's really crazy, fun, & exciting! I feel like I was standing on the river's bank and this raft arrived and I put my foot into it. Someone threw me a Life jacket and a paddle and my the raft started to move under the current. I could either throw myself back on the river banks and breathe a sigh of relief or I could jump into the raft and hold my breath. Crazy, but I jumped. It has been (so far) fun and adventurous, but also hard and exhausting (mainly because I am steering a few other rafts too). But here's the kicker: I don't feel overwhelmed yet. "Overwhelmed" is a warning sign for me. It means I cannot take on more and I should probably drop some of what I'm doing until I can focus. But so far it has been a good kind of challenge.
So, after reading all of that, I'm assuming that you know that I opened up an Etsy shop to start selling my handmade recycled treasures. I'm thinking about possibly also selling at craft fairs and local markets.
Another business that I am launching with that is "InMotion." Which is simply me shooting amateur videography. Explained: I go to a family's home (or attend an event) and record fragments of their lives and interview them to compile a video keepsake DVD to preserve their "life as it is" for generations to come. I'm hoping it takes off, because I know that it will be so much fun to do and that families who participate will have these treasured memories captured for future enjoyment! Eventually, I'd like to build a website to work from for InMotion, but first I will have to earn the funds to do so. Currently I have .pdf informational sheets that explain the ideas and process in more detail.
That leads me to the purpose of this particular post: Where are my earnings are going?
