The past week has not been overly fun for me. It has involved a lot of stressing and late nights at the computer learning new things, trying to remember things I’ve not done in years, breaking things, having to fix the things I broke all whilst trying not to burst into tears because it was so frustrating and I was tired and too hot.
BUT it was all worth it because yesterday afternoon we launched our website for BangOnBlanks and in less that 24hours we’ve had over £750 worth of sales!
Actually, it’s more than that now, as of 5:30pm today we are up to £819.53, which is officially 24 hours of having the website live!
I don’t think we can expect these kind of figures every day/weekend/possibly even every week at the moment but it just shows that the hard work is paying of.
Obviously this is total sales so not all profit and isn’t all my money as it’s a joint venture between my sister and I, we need to keep money back from our cut for tax and other fees but it’s all money we wouldn’t have had if we didn’t try.
I am exhausted and grumpy but wanted to share firstly as a bit of a shameless self-praise (because if you don’t blow your own trumpet who will??) and as a bit of motivation for anyone else who is working on a side hustle business or wants to start one someday.
It’s hard, it’s tiring, you will probably stress and cry over the silliest things but the hard work pays off.
You don’t know what will happen if you don’t try, do your research, start small and dream big!
And sleep…make sure you sleep at some point…
