*This blog was originally written in December of 2016*
Hello all! 2016 has been a year of great change, shift, & growth for us. We traveled a ton & built many new connections, we started consigning with a bunch of shops, & conquered our first holidaze. As 2017 comes into the light we sit here thinking what next? How will we continue to grow? To keep ourselves accountable & to give you all some insight into starting your own business we will start these monthly journal entries cataloguing what a day in the life of a small business owner is.
At this critical juncture in our business we have decided to expand our internet presence by fleshing out more fully our online platforms & stores. Look out for new & special things coming your way from our etsy & shop page. Most notable of these is our expansion of the Wax & Wane Fiber brand. We have welcomed into the fold a multitude of makers whose products we actively use & respect. Most are creating custom pieces for us, which is super exciting. This also gives us a taste of owning our own shop & curating what exactly our brand will be.
More importantly, we as a business are trying to discover how we can affect some kind of change in our new political climate. There is a lot of fear, a lot of anxiety, and a lot of work to be done. In a world where money speaks volumes we are trying to figure out where to best place our support. More on that on BizNasty, our new podcast, and also in our next few business journal installments.
Please let us know what you wanna learn about running your own business!
With Love & Light & Beauty,
Ashton & Claire <3
