Things feel a little out of focus and hazy lately. We are all doing our best to find our groove in a new routine, riddled with uncertainty, anxiety and also an odd sense of calm with all the togetherness.
I’ll be honest, I’m loving the family time. Hating the rigid school schedule my kids have online (it’s a blessing and a curse), and have way high anxiety about how my business will come through all this (but I also know it will, because there is no other option). 3 weeks ago things were vastly different, who knows where we will be in 3 weeks from now. We are taking it one day at a time and enjoying what we can.
Soon this will be a crazy story we tell to the grandkids who won’t believe a word of it.

These two are making mama proud. Two weeks ago, Zen got a soap making kit in his monthly craft box and loved it. Fast forward a week and he wanted to start a soap business with his brother.
With an initial investment from us for extra molds and the first round of supplies, they dove in and worked together to not only make soaps, but come up with a name, design a logo, and learned to create a proper excel spreadsheet for tracking orders, expenses and profit.
With the first round of orders shipped and/or delivered locally, they have reinvested some of their profit into more supplies and have narrowed down customer favorites to create a “line” of soaps to be offered moving forward.
New supplies come Thursday and they are ready for another round of customers. $4 per soap, or 3 soaps for $10. Local delivery available or shipped to you for $5.
This quarantine is going to be a lesson in the power of small business and hard work. 👊🏻 They now have an online order form (thanks to kind people telling me about google forms). WE HAVE AN ORDER FORM NOW! Mama can stop taking orders, haha. If you want to order please use this form! https://forms.gle/ceinzVGEUFjY5vSa7 to place your order! 🧼
