Tragedy recently struck in our community and we lost our home to a wildfire known as “The Beast”.
Along with our home and vehicles my entire jewelry business also succumbed.
I feel like a part of me is missing and I want to get back to creating but I’m finding it overwhelming.
I have a 4 year old little boy and I’m 8 months pregnant as well.
I had planned on taking it easy for a little bit when baby arrived but with our whole world upside down I feel the need to get back to “normal”
I have no idea where to start in creating a new business from scratch.
In one way I can cut to the chase and start exactly where I want and create my ideal business.
When I start to think about gathering supplies I get lost.
I had 15 years of making jewelry and bead collecting and I really took for granted searching my stash to find the perfect beads.
Now it seems daunting to order a few things.
I’ll also say that I am limited to ordering online as the nearest craft/supply store is a 5 hour drive away.
I’m looking for any tips you may have to get me started and organize my thoughts. Thank you!
