Nearly two years ago, I was working full time for an advertising agency.
Inside, I knew some day I would be my own boss, but I had no idea how. I was unhappy with my job and knew my skills were meant for something more.
And then the idea for Essential Oil Flashcards came along. It was a rush. I finally had an idea for a business. We sold our first three deck of flashcards in July 2016.
What started as a hobby for Kaley and I, quickly became a second job. For six months, I was working full time and working to grow EBO. I was naive to what a business entailed and did not even notice because of the excitement the new company brought. I enjoyed the challenges and problem solving.
Finally, in March of 2017, I left my full time job. Thanks to my supportive husband, I took time for self-discovery and to learn how to become a business owner.
Since then, I have attended business and marketing conferences, taken online courses, talked with mentors, and paid for coaches. I have made a lot of mistakes over the past two years and have had a lot of wins. I want to share what I have learned to save you time, energy and money. Owning an online store has changed my life, and I want you to have that, too.
