I got up the other day and put on one of my newer shirts. It is a nice grey polo style shirt. It also has my company logo on it. I turned into a small child when that arrived. I was so excited.
Of course I ordered it myself but that is beside the point. I have a shirt with my company name on it. I ordered business cards with my name on it. I also got a pen in the mail that I didn’t order with my company name on it.
These are all little and seemingly petty things but they really motivate me. They are something besides a computer screen that legitimizes my business. It doesn’t matter that I have made or ordered most of them, at some point IBM and Microsoft did something similar.
I will be that big someday but for right now, I have to start somewhere. These little things keep me motivated to make my business work. They make me want to work harder, and better. They make me want to be worthy of a brand. I want to get to a point where my brand is important to people and I have to order more things with my name on them. I am excited.
I have a slew of things coming for the next couple of months that I hope will pay the mortgage for a while. I have e-books and affiliate books that I am working on and I am also working on a full rewrite of my wife’s website.
In about a month, the new Brenda’s Quilt Shop website will be live and filled with table runners and quilts. Something to keep in mind, they make great Christmas gifts. I will be asking for feedback on some of the sales copy for these and offering prizes….stay tuned.
