Happy Friday Fabbies! Guess What?! My online store Fab & Ravenous Boutique has been operating for one year as of tomorrow! I launched my store on Friday the 13th on 1/13/17 last year, and when I tell you that the year FLEW by?! I can distinctly remember that whole day of my store launch: I had to take some last minute product photos, (I had already been doing that for weeks leading up to the launch), I was super nervous yet excited, I poured some champagne to celebrate the day, and I made vegan lasagna for dinner that night! Ha! Also, I think the nerves and stress of opening (that was all brought on by myself lol), caused me to have a wicked tooth ache. Ahhh what a time! When I got my first order, I was over the moon! I officially had an online boutique!
I still cannot get over how quickly the year flew by. But alas, we are here! Fab and Ravenous Boutique has added tons of new products over the course of the year, had several products sell out, had some products that I just knew were the shit sit on the shelf for months, and also had to change manufacturers in the course of that year. Overall I have just learned a lot about the business of online retail, marketing, and more. One thing that I have learned and that I would definitely tell anyone who is running a business (of any kind), is to continue to push yourself to learn. Read articles, books, magazine clippings, blog posts, and whatever else you can about your industry. I know that I don’t know all there is to know about running a business, so I have to continue to be a student of my profession, and learn whatever I can so that it can help me grow!
Because my business has reached the one year mark, I am having a huge online sale all weekend long, beginning tomorrow. If you have signed up for my newsletter, then you get to take advantage of the sale a day early (TODAY!), plus you get extra discounts and offers that my other customers don’t. So if you want to take advantage of the incredible VIP perks, then I suggest you sign up for my mailing list at my website www.fabandravenousboutique.com!
I also just wanted to say thank you to all of you, the people who read my blog posts, and support all of my endeavors. I truly appreciate you! And support comes in the form of likes, comments, purchases, well wishes, good vibes sent my way, prayers, whatever. However you’ve supported me, I truly appreciate it! Have a wonderful weekend, and if you so choose, happy shopping!
