Happy New Year and THANK YOU!
I have mixed feelings about 2021. We can put several names to it. The year that covid wouldn't go away, the year of the awkward return to school or work and the best one of all, the year I finally figured out what to do with my business.
I had a wonderful Holiday Season with a full calendar. Not every show was a fantastic money maker, but I learned something new from every event. I made some good contacts and found out what markets worked best for the different products and events I create. I met my ideal customer, who inspired me to keep going even on the toughest days. I learned how to stand in 43 degree weather and still have a smile on my face (dancing and a strong hot toddy).
Now, I don't have all of the details laid out as to what I'm going to do with my eclectic little business, but at least I have a better idea of the direction I need to head in. I keep thinking, why didn't I do this when I was younger. Lordy, that would have been easier! But I wouldn't have this fantastic sense of confidence (not) and incredibly stylish taste (anxiety ridden self doubt that you won't like it). I do what I do, at this time in my life because this is what makes me excited to work and keep moving forward everyday.
I am tweaking and shifting for 2022 and have so much I'd like to create and share. Thank you to all who have supported Revel Party Design up to this point. I couldn't do it without you!
