Now what?

Ok I know what I want… how do I get there though?

I am all excited about amazing packaging, cute logos, funky looking displays and locations for product shots. Am I missing anything?

Oh yeah, WHAT AM I GOING TO SELL? It is the kind of important first step.

In the past I have through that it has to be something new and unique. My husband is fond of the saying “see a need, fill a need”. So am I, but everything I see has already been filled (maybe if I hadn’t waited so long!).  So now I am starting to see that the product its self doesn’t have to be, it just has to have my own unique ‘me’ in it. Some different twist, or design that makes it stand out from the rest. What do you think? Are there some products that will always be in demand?

My fear is that there is so much of the same out there that what will I bring that is different? Will anyone want mine? Am I condemning myself before I even begin? Am I in for a marketing nightmare? What if I step on someone’s toes, causing legally troubles? What about product safety and liabilities?………….  Am I making excuses?

    I know what you mean! There is so much to learn, it is easy to get wrapped up in all of the details. I think you start by finding your niche & what you want to do, and not worrying about any other shops (at least for now!). At least that’s what I tell myself when I have the same mental battles. Good luck, I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
