I have a small business. It is called Tangled Webs. In it, I sell prints of my photos, and jewelry that I design.
However, if we’re honest right now, Tangled Webs is an abstract concept of a shop. It is very real inside my head, but it has not taken off in any way.
It’s funny, I’m sitting here right now, working on some pieces for Tangled Webs. It is an offshoot, called “…and remember…”, which is going to be a collection of memorial jewelry. Hopefully. I’m really excited about the pieces, and at the same time, worried greatly that I will end up flopping with this. I’ll have some cool pieces of jewelry, but Tangled Webs will still be an abstract little shop, still existing only in my mind.
I go on Instagram, or Facebook, and I post pictures of my progress, I talk about the pieces that I am making, and I talk like I have a small business. But then I remember that I don’t.
And before you remind me, I know that starting a small business takes a while. And I am doing my best to be patient. But it’s hard. If you’ve ever done something like this, you’ll know that it sometimes feels like you’re not moving forward at all.
But I just set up a new work area, which I think will help me to focus and really get some work done. And maybe it won’t be too long until Tangled Webs switches from an abstract shop to a real one.
