We have all heard the expression One Man Band, meaning someone who plays multiple musical instruments at the same time. I have always thought this was amazing especially as men are not known for multi-tasking are they?
But if you look the term up in a dictionary its second meaning is "An organisation where one person does everything" Ah, now that I do understand, being a "One Woman Business" I often feel like the picture above. Or maybe it should be a juggler trying to keep all the balls in the air at the same time. There seems to be so many of those little balls and each one so important in their own right. Well I think one of my balls has dropped - pardon the expression! I have been so busy concentrating on VAT, ordering Christmas stock, making shawls, networking on social media ....... crikey I am worn out just reading the list! Anyway visits to my website are down as I need to link it to all the social media activities and I haven't got a clue how to do it. I am creative person not a web designer, how can I be expected to know how to do this?
Heyho, no good moaning about it - just have to knuckle down and learn! This time last year I didn't know how to "tweet" or "pin" and now I am up there with the best of them gathering followers as I go. Right off to read "the Idiots Guide to Running a Website" - if only there was one of those haha.
I shall leave you with this thought: Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy craft supplies and that is pretty close!
