When I became self-employed a few months ago I thought I’d have endless amounts of time to do both my freelance design and Bumble and Boo. Turns out I was wrong! I never thought running a business would be easy, but I thought I’d be able to manage my time and motivate myself to do EVERYTHING. But now I see no one can do everything!
You might remember me talking about wedding websites. Well, now I have another business on top of the two I started with! A family friend approached me about wedding websites and suggested we team up to create a separate business. Be on the look out for Weddsite.co.uk coming soon! All very exciting, but all very stressful as I’ve got way too many things going on at once.
I’ve read in so many blogs and business books to narrow your focus in order to be more successful (at least at first so you get strong foundations) and I’ve always ignored that because I want to do all of these different things and didn’t want to give anything up. But now I’m going to give it a try while I set up Weddsite and get Amber Phillips Design going how I want it to. Still more than one focus but I can’t give up either of those!
So Bumble and Boo will still be here with products available in the shop but for now, everything else is paused until all else is under control. I may pop up for a bit on social media and blog posts when I can but that’s it for now. I’ve worked really hard to design new products and rebrand the business so I don’t want to give up completely but I don’t know how long everything will take. Maybe that’ll be motivation to get going quicker so that I can get back to Bumble and Boo!
Either way, *Arnold Schwarzenegger voice* I’ll be back!
