In case you haven't noticed, I have a new widget to the right that isn't quite formatted to fit the column. BUT what's going on is very exciting! I am going to start my own nail polish business! The indie cosmetics business is very tricky and quite competitive. But after years of buying indie and watching businesses come and go, I've decided there's a better way. There simply has to be.
My frustrations come from vendors that do not plan ahead, worry about supply/demand and have no idea how to handle the traffic and sales they generate when they have a big launch. Oftentimes these businesses come out with so many new things at one time, I know that I cannot afford to get ALL the things I want, so I'm sure I'm not alone on that. Then by the time I can afford to, they are gone forever or I have to wait an indefinite amount of time for a restock. The system is flawed. I want to create something different, with a totally different business model.
I have so many ideas! But first there is some fundraising to be done. I have to get supplies, packaging, bottles, shipping supplies, not to mention source the materials I want, look into names and trademarks. It's pretty daunting and pretty scary. So, I've started a GoFundMe page. I have set in place some pretty nifty incentives. I would appreciate it if you could take a look or pass it along and help spread the word. If you could donate, that would be wonderful. But times are tough, so I understand if you can't. Thank you so much for your time!
