Developing your skills

July 29, 2009

The most difficult question to answer is What am I good at? I thought about it and decided that I wasn’t really good at anything.  I knew a little about computers, a little about crafting ie: cards and scrapbooking,  hopefully quite a lot about being a Mother and Grandma although nothing that struck me as a product or service to start my own business.  For twelve months I learnt a lot more about affiliate marketing, Search Engine Optimisation and throughly enjoyed the learning process ending up with a few affiliate sites, Outdoor Trampolines, Samsung T220HD, Baby Travel Cots, Pop Up Travel Cots, Sony Gigajuke SC55PKE, Panasonic, DMR-BS850 Blu-Ray DVD Recorder, 14ft Trampolines, 10ft Trampolines, 12ft Trampolines,8ft Trampolines, Ion TAPE2PC USB Cassette Deck, Ion LP2CD USB Turntable with CD Burner, which bought in a small amount of extra money.  I was now ready to start my own business. 

My daughter, who has a very demanding job which leaves very little time for her to enjoy her son and who is on the never ending roller coaster ride of working for somebody else who doesn’t appreciate her, was eager to get involved in the business before her son started school. She would love to be at home to welcome him home from school, so I knew I had to start something quickly.  Having decided to start a business selling personalised decorative Wooden Memory Boxes and Wooden Keepsake Boxes the next stage was to source and design the end product and organise the manufacture and design etc. Little did I know that it would take so long!
