Yesterday's prompt was Mistakes and Lessons, and if I'm being honest... I have more of those than I can count, let alone babble on about. 😅
When I started GTO, I had no experience with running a business, and no expectation that it ever would become my full time job, so I've been learning as I go and mistakes are definitely part of that.
I think the biggest lesson I've learned is to stop comparing myself to other businesses or worrying about what others are doing or saying. It takes my attention away from my own business, and all of you guys that are here following and supporting what I do!
Shortly after I opened up, the rope leash market EXPLODED, and at first I would definitely take it personally whenever I'd see a new one crop up. But I realized that after I stopped worrying about others, I was able to focus on MY squad and build my business the way I wanted; Even focus on my own gear and continue to improve it so I know that I'm always providing you guys with the highest quality stuff I possibly can. 😘
Your products are amazing. We love your leashes. For “comparison” we own rope leashes from 3 different companies and we love them all for different reasons. Each are unique and wonderful and special. Thank you for being a small business and following your passions! We support you...even if mistakes happen. That’s life! 💕
