Owning your own business is fun but it takes a lot of work and staying commited to it. I started my business two and a half years ago and I just started getting really busy about seven months ago. One thing I have learned is you have to make what is selling even if you don’t build it or like to. Because when I started my business I was making livingroom furniture well that wasn’t selling for me, so I decided at the beginning of this year that I would start making bed frames especially bunk bed and loft beds. Since then I got more business in the last 6 months than I did in the first 2 years of having my business. So finding that one thing that sells is one of the key things to a succesful business. So since then I have focus on building bed frames and working on getting my name out there and letting people know what I make. I have found out to like a lot of other business guys making brochures, and advertising in papers doesn’t work for getting business. The best way is word of mouth or advertising your work or furniture on the internet like c.l. which is where I get a lot of my business. But word of mouth is the best way. One thing you have to learn when you have your own business is to have patience and rely on god to direct you in the right direction on making the right decisions. Because if we keep god first in everything we do then thats when god will let us see the fruits of our labor in what we do for him. And finaly it’s not all going to happen in a couple of days. It might take up to 2 to 3 years to really get it going. Until next time remember to keep god first in everything you do.
Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait for the lord will renew their strentgh. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk, and not faint.
