I am new enough to this business ownership thing where I am still finding unusual benefits to having a woodworking business. The first benefit is getting to know so many great people. I have been so amazed by the encouragement and kindnesses shown to me since I’ve started North Country Rustics. Many “Lumberjock-ers” have liked my facebook page and somehow I’ve even been able to give advice to some! I’m shocked too!!!
The Second Benefit is with my Facebook page gathering Fans (practically on it’s own) I’m getting Fans from all over the world. As far away as Austrailia and Europe…and I can’t forget my Canadian neighbors! Today I reached 250 fans and have made several sales because of Facebook. What I like best though…I can get instant feedback on my designs and my doors…and despite constant rumors it is still FREE! Which is exactly what I can afford… LOL
The Third Benefit is “Benefits”. I’ve never been in a financial position to offer much help when friends and relatives hold a Benefit for someone needing a little help. Now, even though I still can’t contribute financially I really enjoy gifting items for the raffles and door prizes. This is the type of “Good Karma” we can all use~LOL. And it just makes me smile.
These items were all created for a benefit… The Bear Mirror received a lot of positive feedback and I’m looking forward to doing more mirrors soon. The Bear Shelf went to a very happy home. The two wall hangings: Double Trouble and Hootie have turned out to be very popular smaller projects for those who want carvings but don’t want a whole door.
