Wow! Update On Starting My New Business

I think this could keep me busy FOREVER! But that is kind of the idea. So, how goes it on starting a new business? Complex. I have my site, though I am not sure of the address (HOW??). And if the address is what I think it is I don’t like it. I have ordered my EIN. I have to make an appointment today to open a business account. I have started filling my unnamed store with products. That’s tedious. I have to call today to find out if I need a business license…I hope not, I am running low on funds. What did I say about not losing anything if it doesn’t work out? Ha! But I don’t see how it really couldn’t work out, as in bankruptcy not work out. Now I might lose my savings, but that wasn’t much to start with. I’ve applied as an LLC, I think that was part of the EIN process. I am struggling with the various social media. It’s ridiculous how slow I am at figuring out how to have separate pages for me and my store. And to be honest I don’t know if I have done it right. I have a separate email for the store. I still have to figure out advertising. I have three designs up in several products. I think I said that backwards, but you get it. And I believe I have SEVERAL videos to go through on how to get through this process successfully. And I want to open by Friday at the earliest, Monday at the latest. Yeah…right.

It’ll get better, right?

Okay now for the truth. I am having the time of my life! I am busy, yes. I am confused sometimes, yes. But I am having fun. I have always wanted to find a way to create and then produce something. The creating has been going on in one form or another since high school, on and off. But I have never had any solid way of sharing and selling my work. So this is truly exciting for me. I hope when I role out my store, you will all come and look. Also if you see any of my work that you would like to see in my store let me know! I’ve picked out what I thought was best and am getting it up bit by bit. But maybe something I am not as crazy about will be something you like! Also let me know what kinds of products you would like to see, t-shirts (men’s, women’s, kid’s) hoodies, cell phone covers, tote bags, coffee mugs, beach towels, indoor pillows, posters, etc. Okay, it is after 9 and I haven’t eaten, so I better do that and then call about an appointment with the bank. I’ll post again later with my daily prompt!

    1. It’s not going to go anywhere if I don’t get all the business stuff down and get back to painting! Ha! But yes, it is super exciting. I am still trying to get the business paperwork type stuff done, but the website is up and running now I just have to hope I can get the business!

  1. Superb blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks!


    1. I am really no expert, I have only been on for a few months. What I have been told so far by more established bloggers is this: post regularly, use tags, use pictures, use subtitles where you can, and that is all I can think of. But there is a lot more to it. Start out free, I recommend wordpress and it can grow from free to paid subscription. Write about things you love. What I am learning is the case with me, what I started out with is not what I am ending up with. Mine started out as a write about whatever popped in my brain, hence the name, to my art and business. Look for bloggers that have thousands of followers and approach them. They will have a lot more to offer than I do.
