What Are You Doing Now?

about-usWhen I’m out and about chances are I run into people I know. The question is always the same…What are you doing now? It always makes me smile. There are two possible scenarios behind this one single question.

What are you doing now?… You no longer own the stores. You worked six or seven days a week, sometimes twelve hours per day, went on buying trips, and merchandised three stores. How do you fill your hours? You must be feeling awful!

What are you doing now?… I know you. You are always doing something new. You are so creative. What are you up to?

Thank God the human spirit is so resilient! It was not easy, but I’m back to doing what I truly enjoy.

My hours are filled searching out fashion accessories that I feel will thrill my ladies. When my orders arrive I revel in the excitement of knowing I selected the right pieces; I have accumulated one of the finest collections of fashion jewellery. Even the tedious work of inspecting and pricing is enjoyable. I then proceed with photographs and posting online to my website; this is painstakingly slow with only two-thirds of my accessories posted to date. My studio displays the in-stock items, giving me a visual of my inventory; my merchandising skills have not gone to waste. It is a true labour of love!

This new venture prompted me to promote Audacious Attitudes on Facebook. It has been an adventure of its own. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy sharing fun posts with almost fifteen hundred friends. Not only is it a great tool to get the word out about my new business but it is an enjoyable way to stay connected with like-minded women of all ages. One of my favorite things about having the stores was sharing ideas with my customers and the social interaction. Nothing has changed!

As you probably know by now being home has allowed me to spend whatever precious time remains with my mother. It is often said that there is a time for all things and I believe it to be so.

“What are you doing now?”…

I am doing what makes my heart sing!
