It all started with an Etsy article. "12 Ways to Get a Jump Start on the Holidays" The article, a conversation with my husband / business partner, and a 12 hour train ride to visit our daughters, set the course for the birth of this blog. You might want to avoid reading that Etsy article if you have a small toddler or a growing business. It's packed with information and tools for growing your holiday business.
I talked with my husband about some ideas for a fall social marketing campaign with photos and snapshots of certain aspects of working in and running our small business, GlassEyesOnLine. Then on the train ride, I created a concept map for a fall facebook campaign. I shared the concept map with my daughters while visiting them. They both added some ideas to my map and I came to the realization that I needed a platform to write articles about what goes on behind the scenes in our small business.
I'm excited about sharing my adventures being married to a creative man and raising a small business together. I hope you will become a new friend that I can share my adventure with in the coming months.
In my next blog; I will share my concept map and other things I'm learning about blogging and growing a small business with Jerry.
