How I Launched Stationery Cards
The idea of starting something new can feel overwhelming at first. When I decided to launch my own stationery cards, I had no idea where to start. However, I talked with my good friend Linda Mendible and she helped with that process.
I came up with the words and she helped with the design by using Canva . It was a match made in heaven. It was important for me to get them as perfect as possible.
I wanted the cards to be simple, pretty and easy to give to someone. Going through a local printer was something that felt dear to my heart. Working with someone in my community helped me support a local business too.
I found it easy to sell my cards through Etsy. The other way was by using social media to help spread the word. Don’t forget that word of mouth is still a great way to go.
Getting started is the hardest part because of fear. It doesn’t have to be that way. Maybe you want to launch something too. Do you feel like you don’t know where to start?
Grab a notebook and a pen. Write down what it is that you would like to do. Include what you already know and what you need to research in order to get started.
Ask other people how they did it. Is there someone that you know that can help guide you? Consider investing in a coach that can help you set up a plan.
Your mindset plays a huge role in all of this too. If you think that you can’t you won’t. If you believe that you can you will.
I came up with writing several cards before I settled on the right ones. That is how I came up with the Dream Collection.
This collection was meant to inspire others to keep going. To think about continuing with that dream in their heart.
Everyone has a talent. That special something that they are meant to do. You will never know it until you try.
Think about all the things that you have tried in your lifetime. Some were easier than others, right? The good news is that when you do the initial legwork it isn’t as complicated.
Give yourself some grace when you begin the process. Don’t expect to know everything either. It all works by trial and error. If it doesn’t work the first time you must keep going until it does.
Go ahead and dust off what you are waiting to start. It’s a good day for making one of your dreams come to life.
