Do you have something you secretly love to do at work? I do and it’s getting to play around with spreadsheets, documents and presentations. I know for most people this is the last thing in the world they want to do. However, I love when I get to merge business with creativity and create something that is unique and all my own.
This week was the perfect example, as I had to update our old brochures with current information and pictures. The challenge for me was to be as detailed as possible but still be able to fit it in the tight dimensions of the pages. Not the easiest task for someone like me who likes to write and talk for days ;) I also redid our display poster as well (pictured above) and I do have to say I am very happy with the finished products.
I really try to bring my creative and business sides together as much as possible, because the outcome is always so much better when there is a piece of me put into it. Since starting this business I have been asked a lot “What makes your business different than any others out there?” Of course I could give the standard answer by stating what makes my product better than the others, etc. However, my answer has always been “Me.” There is only one of me and I am what makes my business unique.
Every bit of my personality gets put into some aspect of the finished product. It is this process that is the most fun for me. I remember when I was setting up my shop and I would get lost for hours in the little details that were just little bits of my personality peeking through. Of course, there is always the fear of putting yourself out there, never knowing if someone will understand your quirks. This is still something I have had to work on a lot, but it is so worth it in the end.
I look forward to sharing more with you soon!
