Summer is both a crazy busy time and a lull time. Busy with longer days and all of the fun things do to outdoors. Lull time for business and shopping. I am spending this summer busy outdoors and busy indoors, sorting. Sorting inventory and organizing gallery spaces. This is not my skillset, but I am persevering! It does feel good to get everything in order.
So far, I have concentrated on brick-and-mortar spaces. I am in the final phases of tackling my online inventory. I only have two online spaces, but they were both in dire need of inventory checkup and sorting. Now I have everything synced together in one shop with a few additional listings in my Etsy shop.
It’s All Good But…
All of this ‘non-creative’ work wears me down. How do you rejuvenate when tasked with the not-so-fun parts of your job or business? For me, I take photos, draw, and paint. And do lots of walking and hiking. These activities are my oxygen when these other tasks feel suffocating.
