So here it is, I want to start a little company.
With a brand name and a logo and business cards and all.
I'm currently in contact with a friend of my sister who is an illustrator.
She makes the cutest drawing ever. We're currently discussing to find
an arrangement that will make us both happy.
I'm quite excited I must tell you.
I get how people feel when they ask for a custom quilt now :)
It is scary though.
What if people don't buy my products because they thing it's too expensive ?
And what if I have too many orders and people just go somewhere else
because it takes too long for me to make their order ?
And I need to figure out what I want to sell.
Baby stuff ? Only quilts ? Pillows ? Whatever people want ?
Am I going to be able to say no to orders if it's something I'm not interested in making ?
And what am I going to say to people who ask for "discount" because they know me ?
I talked about it with my boyfriend the other day and he is incredibly supportive.
He has a degree in business and management so he definitely sees the business side of it while I think about all the fabric I will be allowed to buy "because it's for orders".
My dream ?
Being able to work at the restaurant only in the morning (and be home by 2pm !).
I'm not there yet but yes, that would be my dream.
I made a board for my sister's friend so she can get to know me and what I like.
Here's just a sample of what's in there.
As for the title ? That's going to be my "name".
MOC for Marika Ouellet Creations.
Short, easy to remember, works in english and in french.
Any advice you want to share with me ?
