Out with the old..

Written on January 17th, 2012 by sassymomno shouts

This month, I am giving up two of my business, in which I am a partner, to give my full attention to my new business.

Out with the old, in with the new….

I finally got my business permit yesterday, it’s under my name and now I cant truly that I am a certified entrepreneur. A good way to start the year!

I just hope and pray that this will be a successful venture. I have tried a lot of business, I have failed in some but I will not stop trying.

For this year, I am filled with so much hope. I am summoning all the positive energy in this world to help with this new business venture.

And while at it, I am browsing at Cyber Monday sale, trying to score a great deal for a laptop. :-) teeheeehee…

Business is peaking

Written on November 7th, 2011 by sassymomno shouts

It’s our third exhibit for our bazaar business and we can already feel the Christmas rush… sales are peaking up and I am so happy. As we countdown the days towards Christmas, more and more shoppers will look for Christmas gifts and of course, to buy things for themselves that means more sales for our bazaar.

We have learned a lot from this experience, and now we are confident about our market and the items that we need to sell as well as the items that are saleable. It was a trial and error thing for us to know what the market wants, but we have learned.

Joining bazaars is a preparation for us to have our own store. I hope that this Christmas season, we will be able to save enough money to fund our rent for own store, that is our ultimate goal. Soon, we’ll have our POS and well be using thermal printers like Epson TM-T88V. I can only dream :-)

Bazaar Business

Written on November 3rd, 2011 by sassymomno shouts

Yes, I have ventured into another business, the bazaar business! Together with my sis-in-law, we decided to take the risk knowing that everybody will be rushing to buy stuff for Christmas gift-giving. This is the business I was talking about in my other blog.  I couldn’t hush up because of the excitement and finally we are operational. So far, so good! We are expecting sales to peak up some more come December.

As I observe the saleable items, I am amazed. I refuse to think that I am not a trendsetter, it’s just that I have my own fashion statement. But I guess as entrepreneurs, we need to adjust to what the market dictates and not be stubborn about what we thing will sell — that is the first lesson we have learned.

Going around, I am surprised to see items that sell like the trend now are “Angry Birds”, anything about it. I have also funny shirts that spoof brands, couple shirts, and of course, accessories. However, people who have been in the bazaar business tells me that come December, everything sells. Since people love to give during Christmas.

I am praying that this venture will prosper and that even if it’s not Christmas, we will still find the right location to sell our goods.

Finding your own space

Written on September 21st, 2011 by sassymomno shouts

I just came home from a fruitful but tiring tripping with hubby and my boy — who wanted tag along,  in search for an office space. Yup, an office space for my hubby. It’s been ten months since he started his own architectural practice and now it’s about  time to expand a little, so finding his own office is already a must. It’s exciting but at the same time there’s a hint of fret of what the future has in store for this new business venture.  But we are very much optimistic with all the prospects  at hand and with God’s grace, I know hubby will be a success.

Finding your own space be it your office or your home, is always an exciting experience. After our tripping, both of us sat down and did a brainstorming session for the office look.  The decor, lighting, fixture and furniture, everything should have a hint of the owner’s character.  Like in your own home, the receiving room or living room is the space where guests can see the owner’s distinctive characteristics.

As to your own space and sanctuary, it is always essential to find a space where you can feel tranquil and lets you express your creativity or your personal ideas. The place you live and work should be something that you look forward to go to everyday, that is why your personal touch is a requirement.

Like in my home, my personal sanctuary is my bedroom. No matter how cluttered the kids are in the other areas of the house, as long as my bedroom is quiet and free of clutter … I always look forward to lying on my bed every single night. Oh, I know the gentlemen have a different perspective… others look forward to spending time inside their entertainment room, or the den or even the garage. I know of some men who loves to hang out at the garage with their male friends. That’s why they make sure that they have their beer fridge there and wants every detail of this space perfect up to the material used as their garage floor coating.

Whether it is your workplace or your home, always find an area where you can have your personal touch, a space you can relax, be creative and will make you feel good :-)

Marketing your small business

Written on February 15th, 2011 by sassymomno shouts

Just three weeks ago, we opened another small business venture … finally! It was actually long overdue, the delay caused me a lot of stress.

The first week was quite a dull in terms of sales. The banners and tarpaulin signages announcing our opening came on the second week, and sales shoot up. I guess those signages worked. However, the store still short of the sales target I have set for it. Hmmmm? I need some more marketing strategy…

I thought marketing strategies only applies to big corporations but even how small your business is… you need to have a marketing plan. In my other store, I tried giving out business flyers to announce and let people know where we are located, and it helped boost the sales. I am wondering if it will do the same for this store. There’s only one way to find out…. I shall design the flyers in a while.
