Hello and Happy New Year. It’s so nice to be writing to you again in my first blog for the year.
I made a big decision about my business in the first few days of 2019.
It may sound audacious…
It may sound bold…
It may sound impossible…
It may even sound arrogant … although I hope not, because I’m so not…
But I want The Shoe Garden to be the best shoe shop in the world.
I know, I know. It sounds so pie-in-the-sky, but shouldn’t that be my goal regardless?
Shouldn’t we all strive to be the best we can be all the time? Why would I want to own a shoe shop that wasn’t spectacular and winning over hearts everywhere? What’s the point in that?
Having announced this to the world (well, to my followers on Facebook and Instagram!), I started to wonder about what it will take to achieve such status.
I started looking at everything around me and why and how and what I do each and every day … and how I could do all of that better and faster. I started writing lists and ideas and filled many pages. It’s quite invigorating to look at what you do and reassess with such a huge and specific goal in mind.
Some of my customers were beautiful enough to say that I was already there and I love them for that. But there’s so much potential ahead; I can’t wait to get on with it.
Until next time
Carol & CCx
