Business Basics II: Week V

I really wish I had written down my thoughts last night, but when I got home, I was was greeted with the surprise visit of friend of ours.

I have a lot of ideas about promoting my biz, which is good, because next round of classes is Marketing II. I'm getting warmed up! I say this about once a month - I am a little bit of a perfectionist. Sometimes that I feel like my product or my website isn't *quite* good enough to show people yet. I'll make excuses. "Those two images need to be reset at a little higher resolution and THEN I'll send out a notice to my email list" ... or ... "I wouldn't want to send all these people to my site and not have a gift wrap option would I??" It's never good enough for me, and I have a hard time just sucking it up and showing off what I have even though it's not perfect. I need to say, "Okay, that image might be two pixels too wide but IT'S NOT A BIG DEAL." or "My artist statement (or whatever it is) still needs some work but OH WELL it's a work in progress" No one will buy anything if they don't know it exists! And how can anyone possible notice all these things I criticize myself for, anyway??

It's so much easier just to hide.
