Always be kind 💖 I’m feeling a bit down today as last night I received a rather nasty message from a customer saying that they were embarrassed to give my card to the recipient because it’s of very bad quality (& a few other nasty comments)
That one little word...embarrassed, has made me question myself & my work.
I receive 100s and 100s of lovely positive feedback, but the bad ones stick out in my mind. I pride myself on quality and my designs and I hope that I don’t over charge...I try to price my products fairly.
It’s okay for someone to not be happy with a product, and it’s okay to let the seller know your opinions but please be kind when doing so. You don’t know what’s going on in the sellers personal life or what struggles they are having and criticising their business that they have built and are building up could make them feel 1000 times worse.
If you buy from a small business, it’s likely one or two people running the business alone along with a family life. We’re not big hard businesses that brush it off, harsh nasty comments do effect us. I know this one has effected me.
So always be kind, even if you’re not happy...💖
Today’s prompt for the @etsyperfect#etsyperfectchallenge is ‘custom order’ and whilst that’s still new territory for me, I’m looking forward to stocking my shop throughout the week with these more personalised initial animal ABC prints... like our little penguin friend here 🐧 now available to buy through our shop link in our bio!
Missing this space at the mo as I’m sick and working from the sofa. There is still a strange joy about being ‘normal people sick’ though. I can still do more when I’m super normal sick than I ever could when I had CFS!! So today I shall sit with my tissues, apple cider vinegar and binge watch friends while replying to a few emails. #alwaysfindthegood#gratefulheart

Every business owner faces the challenge of growing and improving their business in amongst the mayhem of actually getting all of their work done! Me included. A few years back I found a sure-fire way to keep moving forward. It was one simple question, writes @agauthor
