I think it would be safe for you to assume that I don’t take negative feedback very well!
It’s tricky running a small business by yourself. I know my husband is here, if I ever need to run things past him, but essentially all of the decisions about my business are my own. Sometimes I get it right. Sometimes I don’t.
Sometimes I know when I’ve got things wrong, and sometimes it comes as a bit of a shock. So, the email about “discounting” my work really surprised me. I wasn’t expecting it. I thought I had come up with some fun ideas (some discounts, some freebies) for the silly season. Someone questioned my integrity. That hurt.
On reflection, I think that person was partly right, but I think I was also partly right too. And I still want to enjoy my favourite month of the year!
Here’s how the rest of December will work in my Etsy shop:
- anyone can get 20% discount in my shop, plus free shipping, using the coupon code THANKS at the checkout (this will still be available in 2015 too).
- anyone placing orders in December will also receive a FREE gift with purchase! It will be a surprise. I hope you like it!
