It is Tuesday, day #2 of working in the office. This involves coffee, lots of water, soda, and a clear head! Need I say more? Actually, the honest truth is that I am enjoying this time. It has been a blessing to be able to begin sprucing up for 2009!
Today I worked on the website. My personal and business goals for 2009 are numerous. All of the goals have set deadlines, and all are on paper, meaning, they will get done. Goals with ASAP deadlines are getting my attention this week. One goal was to write a statement/promise for my friends and customers. Today I placed the statement on my website's index page. With this statement, you cannot get much closer to my heart, my business goals, my desires, and what I want to accomplish in life. Yes, I want to sell soap, but I am also just as equally dedicated to helping others, whether that be through learning, listening, teaching, helping with animals, whatever I can do, I intend to do my best. If I do not have an answer, then I hope to help find one.
I am also planning an "ugly" soap sale. If you have any thoughts or requests for this sale, drop me a comment or email. The sale will include soap that I do not want to sell as full-sized bars (minimal 4 ounces). The soap will be of good quality, and with each type of soap sold, I will include a short description as to why it is being sold at a discount. All of my soaps are tested by myself, friends, and family.
I am working on a website testimonials page. Thank you for the great comments received! The soap is not being made for me, it is being made for people that I care about! The testimonials page is a tribute to you.
I am working on a series of bath and body product ingredient articles. My next ingredient article will be palm oil. I love to use palm oil in my soaps. I will admit that one of my goals, and not in the far future, is to determine where to buy palm oil that is gathered from palm trees that are harvested in a manner that does not deplete the great rain forests, therefore, does not put any part of the environment at risk. If you have any links that I can study to prepare for the palm oil article, I truly appreciate your input!
Thank you for your comments, links, laughs, ideas, and friendship. I think we are living in wonderful times!
