It's hard to believe another year is closing in. It is true, the older you get, the faster time flies. Sometimes the days are long, but the months are short.
Reflecting back on this past year, I am more than blessed with the support of my customers and family. Not only has my business grown, but I have also worked on my business as much as in my business, I added new and updated equipment and software, and added my booth at the Topeka Vendors Market as well as several vendor events throughout the year. I really focused this last quarter on narrowing down my niche, and it has been beneficial. The truth is, it has been years since I have drawn a consistent paycheck from my business, always reinvesting back into the business, whether it be products or equipment, and I finally feel like I am in a good place to start drawing a paycheck again. I mean, I wouldn't work for anyone else for free, but at the same time, I do what I love, and it rarely feels like work.
I want to say Thank You, to anyone and everyone that has supported me and my business. Sharing posts, making purchases, sending customers my way, and just giving me the confidence to keep moving forward, Thank You!! From the bottom of my heart, you will never know how much it means to me.
Moving into the new year, I am excited for all the changes in store. Sometimes change is scary, but having clear plans in place, has me daydreaming about all the good that will be beneficial to myself and my customers.
My Tee-Therapy t-shirt subscription opens January 1st. My goal is to not only offer you cute and trendy tees for the holidays and seasons, but to make finding something seasonal to wear easy and convenient, and to also be unique, make you feel good, and remind you that you the simplest things can bring us joy.
I am also working on retail space for 2022. I have no set plans in place at the moment, but i am investing a lot of time to figure out what will be best for my needs and make shopping in person easier for my customers as well.
Live sales will continue. It has been a while since I have had one, but I am hoping to make them a monthly sale.
We are all hoping stock issues will resolve. This will improve available options and turnaround times. I will be offering 3-5 day turn around on all screen print orders, dependent upon artwork and stock availability.
I'm sure there will be many more changes and just as many obstacles for 2022, but I hope in the end, we all end up where we are supposed to be. I can't thank you all enough for riding along on this journey with me. I can't think of any place I would rather be. Here's to '22! May it be all that you need it to be!
