I shared on my book’s Facebook page this week how a lovely customer wrote in an email:
“You guys always have something that I want.”
First, that’s music to my ears!
But I did smile as I read her words “you guys” when referencing The Shoe Garden.
Because you guys = me!
I love wearing all the different hats that it takes to run a small business as a largely one-woman show.
Yes, I may get a bit cross-eyed and tongue-tied on some days from 6am starts and long days, and juggling everything from cleaning and ordering to paying invoices, looking after customers and updating my website and social media, not to mention the odd sleepless night worrying about whatever, but I’m not completely alone, either.
I have two gorgeous casual staff, supportive parents who visit a couple of times a week and busy themselves helping out and, of course, darling CC is always by my side. Okay, so she’s mainly snoozing (check out the photo taken as I write this!), but she’s a calming presence that I cherish.
All in all, I’m very, very happy and proud to be “you guys”!
Until next time
