Update on the dream!!! (New website)(Facebook)(Logo)

Well I decided to totally redo the website.  I learned the hard way when you move from host provider to the next that your domain name can be held hostage.  I can say lesson learned.  It took me almost 2 weeks to rebuild the site from scratch to give the world a better shopping experience and I can say I am so proud of myself because a lot of people pay other companies to do this for them.  If I had the funds I would have done that as well but when you do it yourself you learn a lot.  I created this new site which includes a fantastic shopping cart and a great shopping experience.  I can say that I will get my original domain name back soon but I can say I love my new domain name better. The page is now live so let me know what you all think.  The boutique will have a soft open early 2014 so please check out the website for future updates. You can also check out the Facebook page as well for updates and here is the link. https://www.facebook.com/BlackandGreyBoutique

I also decided on redoing the logo. I loved the original but the one I came up with one that is more me. I really like it and at the same time I may make some changes to it in the distant future but like I said it has been a journey. I recently read an article on new business owners and it said that working out most of the kinks before you open is a must. New business owners can’t afford to make any mistakes because it is extremely hard to overcome them in the beginning. I still have a few more things to work out as far as inventory management which in the beginning should not be a real problem but god willing if it does become an issue I got to be ready :-). Be sure to check out the website and the Facebook page and feel free to comment and let me know what you all think so far. Like the Facebook page as well and spread the word.

It’s so easy to get off track

Well being a new business owner I can say it is quite easy to get off track which can result in delays of opening a business. I am so guilty of that and right now I feel horrible about it. My main deterrent is that I still have my full-time job that takes up 8 hours of my day, plus I am a mother of an 8 year old daughter that takes up the rest. I envy all women and men that can manage this so easily. I just got back from a business trip that sidelined me for 2 weeks so I am now trying to regroup and get back on tasks. I am excited that I have a trip to New York coming up next month in which I will be spending time with family and conducting business on behalf of my company so exciting news is coming soon. I can say that writing this blog and sharing this experience with the world has been so helpful and I am always grateful for the comments and encouragement that I am receiving.
Thank you all so much!!
Until the next time 🙂
