When I make a soap box my mind travels back to when my sweet soft spoken mom was standing by my side. She was my best friend and cheerleader. If you've lost your mom then you know the bittersweet feelings that cling to your spirit after they're gone. My mom also named my company. Little did I know, how the name would echo a new meaning later. The name is wrapped with grace and gratefulness. Those two earthly and what I imagine to be glorious spiritual feelings. Life would not be life without grace and gratefulness.
My little apothecary shoppe is growing! Not physical size wise, but rather word getting out. After almost eighteen years of operating and managing Bittersweet, the word is getting out. In fact, I'm seeing an increase in manufacturing in all avenues. A good thing, as MS would say.
How do you approach business growth? Well of course, I'm flattered you ask... Slowly, quietly, but with a full speed ahead mindset. Looking forward, but remembering the past. Staying humble no matter how big you get. Weeding your garden so not to allow pesky weeds to destroy your harvest. Not sure what I meant by the latter statement. I'll let your mind create an explanation.
I'm plucking a few weeds from the radio show. Fine tuning my instrument and excited for the future. Always a great feeling to be excited for the future.
A soap maker's life.... Thank you for being a part of it.
Enjoy caring and sharing days.
