Are you "successful"?

Success” is different for everyone. I’ve learned over the past 5 years not to compare my journey to someone else’s because my needs are not the same as theirs - why on earth should I strive to be something I’m not just because someone else has made it to a certain level of “success”? 🙃 a measure of success for one handmade business may be to have a creative space or to cover the monthly car payment - while someone else’s handmade venture may need to support their whole family. If you’re able to meet YOUR goal -then, in my eyes, we’re all successful 💪🏻
.
So I preface these points with keeping that all in mind - implement things that bring you closer to YOUR success & leave behind what doesn’t. These are the things that have helped me reach our weekly goals 👇🏻
.
1. LISTS: I have certain things I do each day that keep me on track with supplying 3 employees with work to do. If the list is complete I can move onto other (aka more creative) things.
.
2. DELEGATE: now this one didn’t come easy. I once did everything myself but as we grew I started to delegate tasks until I grew a team that loves the job they each do - including me. I know now that to promote a creative environment I need to delegate the tasks that I do not excel at. That gives me a chance to design the best bonnets I can while streamlining the production in order to produce 150-200 bonnets per week.
.
3. CONSISTENCY: just be consistent - like painfully consistent 🤣 I even drive myself nuts with how consistent I have to be…BUT it’s always paid of. Our customers can depend on us, there’s always something new for customers to enjoy & we operate like a well oiled machine 🙌🏻
.
4. QUALITY: we’ve spent A LOT of time researching materials for trim, buying industrial bias makers, sewing machines, having custom bias feet made, die cutters, professional patterns cut, organize design servers for our teams remote studios… you name it, we’ve streamlined it. Which allows us to make the best quality product we can 🙂 we do one thing & do it really well.

Thanks for being here & supporting us 🙌🏻❤️
