The Garage sale

I have to admit, I had a bit higher expectations. I didn't sell as much jewelry as I'd have hoped, but, I did sell all the stuff in my garage (save a few books) & was even able to give away a broken lawn mower that's been sitting in the garage for over a year.

Overall, it was a success and I got several of my business cards floating out there, now! I had no idea that I would sell some of the things I did, like a big cast iron cookware set, 3 old bikes, an old glider/ottoman set & an old working vacuum. The cast iron was a fun one because the woman who bought it was looking for that specifically. She called her hub because he was the one who wanted it, and he was chuffed. I could hear his excitement on the phone. That was pretty neat, to me anyhow. ;)

I took some time this weekend to reflect on some things...namely me. I can make things & do it well. What I have never been good at is being a sales person. While I love creating, I'm not good at the selling part. I guess there's some work for me on the horizon - self improvement stuff. Isn't that always the case, though? In every aspect of life? A woman's work is never done, no matter the type of work.

Thinking about it is always scarier than it really is because we mentally give it too much credit. It will come as you grow and I have no doubt you'll grow to be what you need to be and do it gracefully!

PS - Sorry I got miss'n like that...long story and I owe you an email!!!
