Welcome to our blog!
See what's brewing!
I cannot believe we are celebrating our 4th anniversary this month! This sounds ridiculously corny & I'm ok with that but, where has the time gone??
I started Love Struck soon after college when I was working part time & had fallen in love with sewing. I didn't have a real plan or a real vision though. It was something I figured I'd start because I had the time & I was hungry to make a million things. I had always known owning my own business was a dream of mine, but never did I think that this was the type of business I'd own.
But now 4 years later and I couldn't imagine not having Love Struck as a major part of my life. I still don't have the most crystal clear vision or perfect plan & that's something I actually kind of love. I have learned that being a business owner means you need to be open to everlasting changes & compromises- even if those compromises are with yourself.
Without being open to change, or willing to make drastic changes, I would have never adapted my business to become solely custom order based. That was such a huge transition for me to make last year. I eliminated creating & constantly stocking inventory and trying to find shows and events to set up a table at local events.
Being a vendor at an event has so many pros and so many cons. I loved getting out there, meeting customers & talking to them. That in person conversation & interaction is something that I enjoy doing. But being a vendor has its risks too, what if nobody comes or nobody buys anything?
It was such a relief when I made the change knowing that I can spend more time on personalizing my orders & expanding the things I create. I enjoy not having to try to figure out what items I need to restock & how many I need to restock them with. The relief is when I knew that a custom based business was perfect for me.
I’m super proud of where we are right now, all the things we have accomplished, pushing outside of our comfort zone & there have been many days when it hasn’t been easy. I’m so happy that we’re celebrating these happy years & are continuing on better than ever!
