- > THE MUSIC refine and finish (hoops + simple necklaces)
- > QUICKBOOKS decision

- > NEW ITEM UPLOAD
- > PR (new color + the music) (IDEALLY: new website + new space)
- > JEWELRY STOCKUP
Just eight things, right!? No problem! So why do I feel all panic-y? Not like shaky and losing it, but like a little buggy and maybe just a smidge tight-chested. Perhaps that’s because each one of those line items has 14 secret sub-points that are lurking in the background. But are we gonna get it done?!?
Betsy says yes. YES. YES!
We were lauded at a luncheon yesterday and it was lovely.
It says: PSU Business Outreach Program Small Business of the Year Award Presented to Betsy Cross and Will Cervarich, Betsy & Iya, in recognition of Business Growth and Job Creation. How’s that for awesome!? We were really touched and flattered.
At the luncheon, the MC riffed: “My grandmother was a small business owner and she used to say: ‘Being a small business owner is incredible. The hours are very flexible. Very flexible. You can work any 80 hours a week you like.’” I like her style. And I like the hours. And I like succeeding. And I know we will. Sayonara, to-do list. Sayonara secret sub-points. Sayonara buggy feeling.
