With all this attention being paid to the 365 Things Project, you may be wondering, what is going on with luckybaglove.com? That’s a very valid question, that I don’t have a great answer for.
I am in the process of completely overhauling the business, from concept to design of the website, to photos, to inventory, to packaging, to marketing, to SEO, to everything. Since my 9 to 5 takes up most of my free time as well, there’s no telling when this relaunch will go live. To have any hope of this happening sooner rather than later, I am going to have to have some difficult conversations with some people at work.
But, starting over again can be liberating. This time, I am going to listen to my own gut and not let anyone sway me from my original vision for this company. I won’t compromise out of fear. The worst already happened. I opened my store and nobody came. All I can do is try again and give it my best shot. I cannot squander this opportunity. I cannot let fear of failure paralyze me. I have already failed and nothing happened to me besides losing some money.
That lost money is worth every penny if I earnestly put all my effort into making it a success. If I continue to prioritize my 9 to 5 at the expense of the business and the business is shut down, I have no one to blame but myself. It’s my choice. I have to either go for it or not. I can’t let other people’s agendas for me dictate what I do with my life any longer. It’s easier said than done.
