If you're not where you want to be in life, why you chilling so much?
I posed this question on my Instagram story a few days ago and it is something I've been thinking about ever since.
I truly believe in Moore Positive Vibes. And I know it can be a steady source of income for me and my boys. I have to work, work, work to get the brand out there, build my platform and turn my followers into dollars. On top of making candles, testing scents, being unique and original; and in addition to being a single mom of two active boys.
I'm not complaining, I'm just explaining why I haven't blogged this week.
I'm so in love with making candles and my first shipment will go out on Saturday! I'm super excited. I'm very pleased with how all the candles turned out and I've let them sit for about a week so the smell just be wonderful by the time the reach the buyers.
It wasn't all pretty and perfect though. Take a look at this picture to see how many failures I've already had.
It may not seem like a lot. But I know there will be many more to come as I try new scents and new ways of packaging. Every candle there represents about 10 dollars of lost sales. So that's 60 bucks down the drain.
Well not really. Because I learned invaluable lessons about temperature and pouring and fragrance that will only make me better.
I'm not discouraged at all. If candle making was the easiest thing in the world then everyone would be doing it.
But on some positive notes I've made $124 in sales. Moore_PositiveVibes on Instagram has 32 followers - double from last week. And over 70 likes on a Facebook!
Things are definitely moving in the right direction.
I'm hopeful that when people begin to receive their candles that the will tell others about Moore Positive Vibes and sales will begin to steadily increase.
My sister invested quite a bit of money into the business and we were able to make a BIG purchase order that will be coming in next week. Which I'm super thankful she did that.
Jarrell took some amazing photographs that we used on the website. Check them out below.
He did a great job! I may have put him on payroll. 😂😂😂
Moore Positive Vibes is turning into a legit business and I'm so excited.
Last night I took welcomed break from making candles, working on spreadsheets, and printing shipping labels to watch both of my sweet boys play baseball. I was sprinting from one end of ball park to the other so I didn't miss either of them hitting, but it was well worth it. Baseball is easily one of my favorite sports to watch and the boys just love it. Take a look at our pictures.
The rest of this week is sure to bring more learning as I send out my first shipment of candles.
I'll be sure to keep you updated. In the meantime always be open to receiving Moore Positive Vibes.
