New shipment arrived yesterday and I'm almost ready to start selling abroad. I will focus on a couple of EU countries first.

I will probably get a new store up and running in the next week or two. I have no idea how it will work out, but hopefully can get a couple of sales from outside my local market!

And first Amazon shipment is also in the works.

In other news, the last 3 months have been awful. I broke up with my girlfriend of 8 years. I'm slowly getting over it and finally I have new products in to work on and I will be alright soon. It has been extremely painful though.
Sorry to hear that. If you need anything let me know.

Otherwise, the new shipment is great news. I really wish you all the best and keep us updated.

It's been a while, things have been a bit slow due to some personal stuff.

I've decided to automate everything I can with my store that's selling locally, I'm currently moving to different platform (I want to outsource shipping and my current platform doesn't support it) and then I will hire someone who will take over the marketing and help me rebrand or at least consult with someone because my marketing is chaotic. Then I can concentrate on new products and that's my strong side. I believe all that will give me much more time to expand and also will increase my revenue and profit.

Hope everything is fine with your personal stuff.
Great tactic! Think you're on the right path. Create a company, scale it, automate it, and then take a step back and repeat. Or that's at least my approach. If you need any help just let me know.

Okay, so it has been a slow couple of weeks (months).

Website is now on a different platform and I have succesfully detached myself from packaging/shipping as well. Found a marketing specialist last week, we decided to work together on monday. But she hasn't had time for me for a week now! That's pretty typical - everybody want's more marketing work to do but they don't have time to commit to their new clients. I am very disappointed and will tell her today that I will find a new marketing specialist.

I started testing new products to sell abroad, new social media accounts, no website yet, but got a first sale through my FB page - will ship it today. That's a milestone, but I do need a couple of those more to gain some confidence to go all in. I don't want to throw a lot of cash on it yet.

I feel really lost when the sales are down, like it has been recently, although it is supposed to be slower during the warm period.. But hopefully things are going to be better when I have a solid marketing strategy in place with a specialist and new products coming in frequently.

Oh and I may get a part-time job. Haven't had a job for over 13 months. :D
