Hi, I'm Fran,
I wasn't gonna write a blog, but I'm told it'll boost my ranking on google, so here goes
I'm a middle aged woman who went back to uni in her 30s. Since leaving uni my health has meant that I can't work outside the home. Also for the past few years, since I left uni I've been churning around the idea of starting my own business, but I kept telling myself I couldn't afford it.
Just before Christmas I paid off some bill & decided to bite the bullet. I thought, with all the benefit cuts & people more disabled than me being told to get out & work, it was now or never. As my first idea was quite complicated & needed a lot of backing I thought setting up an online store would be the easy option..... Little did I know the roller coaster I'd just jumped on for the past 6 months. You would think that, in today's economy if any size of retailer approaches a manufacturer offering cash, they would gab it with both hands.... But nope! They expected me to fit 3000 to 5000 snow globes into my box room...,. Wonderful :) Then there was the endless searches for suppliers who, it appeared, didn't even bother getting back to you & a battle to build a website with a website builder you can't actually use. Oh & then there was the weeks of negotiations with the chinese manufacturer that was looking more & more dodgy by the day :) But then my family & friends would tell you that's just typical me. I attract MURPHY LAW, anything that can happen, will happen But just as I've stumbled about for the last few months, in the last few weeks I've also stumbled across some great suppliers, great products & great deals & that is what I wanted to tell you about next, that & how I came up with the idea to combine traditional fantasy & gothic items with water globes.
