Hi there! My name is Tracy and I make handmade soaps. (Hi Tracy…) I know, it sounds like I am in a 12 step program right? But this is my first attempt at a blog…they still call them that right? The first thing that “they” tell you to do is get a website. Then you have to get a Facebook page and a Twitter account. Also don’t forget to get a blog so you can write about having a website, Facebook page and Twitter account. It all seems endless.
My background is really in Marketing and Promotions. After years of marketing several radio stations in Tampa and Fort Myers, Florida and working for someone else, I got burned out. I wanted the American Dream of being my own boss and being in a positive atmosphere rather than the rat race I was in.
Three years ago I started my own business making hand-made soaps and embroidered items. I say started, but in many ways, it feels like I am just beginning now. The prep work of finding the right recipes for soaps that I would use to figuring out a logo that I was proud of took all of that time and finally seems like it is all coming together. It has been a long process, but it has been fun to learn new skills and ways to improve myself.
In the coming entries, I will try my best to make this a fun place to visit and keep you up to date with all the accomplishments of a small business owner in a less than perfect economy.
I thank-you for stopping by!
