I've been a basket case lately. I haven't been sleeping well, and I spend a lot of time in my head sort of freaking out.
I'm starting a business, and it's a little nerve-wracking. The funny thing is I've done this before.
I started my own web design business at 18. But it didn't involve tangible products, I didn't have to worry about sales tax or anything fancy, and I ended it a year later to get married and have babies. (A much better job in my opinion.)
However, even having been through it before, this time it seems... harder.
Maybe because I'm attempting to sell a part of myself. Uhh.. That didn't come out right. I'm trying to sell something I love so much and put so much time into.
My knitting. My soul, almost.
I'm nervous that no body will like my stuff.
That nobody will buy my stuff.
I'm nervous people will buy my stuff, but something will happen - like a freak postal error - the first time out and doom me forever.
I'm nervous about getting things done, and schedules, and running a successful online business.
I'm going crazy.
I've told Ben all this and he says to just give it some time. Let it build. Get my name out there. And I know he's right. It's just... hard.
I know if nothing else I'll be good at the bookkeeping!
I've got my FBN statement, and my Seller's Permit came today. I'm official now.
Now I just have to suck it up and do it. I'm hoping to launch my shop soon... Stay tuned.
And wish me luck!
A little shaky,
