If you build it, they will come...

I am a long-time believer in the power of positive thinking. And I have proven to myself countless times that if I set my mind to it, I can accomplish pretty much anything. I don't mean that to sound conceited and egotistical, instead I mean that my creator has given me... us!.. the tools to do a great deal, if we have the ambition and desire to use them.
Awhile back, I began kicking around the idea of adding a few wholesale customers to my tie-dye business so that I could reduce the number of craft shows I need to attend but still bring in enough income to keep my business afloat. I mentioned this to a friend who is also a self-employed crafter, who has done just that with her business. Well, a few weeks ago, someone contacted her to get information about crafters she knew who might be willing to sell wholesale, and my name came up. Yesterday, my new client and I had a tele-conference, and created my first wholesale order for her! I am really excited about this new growth spurt for my business, and hope that it will be just the beginning of a new business relationship. Progress!

Congrats, Judy! I'm a believer, too, and it's a little spooky how, lately, pretty much all I have to do is think of something I want and it appears (except the million bucks; still waiting on that!). But I'll think, I wish I knew how to . . . and the next day, I'll see an article on how to do it. Or, I wish I had someone to ask about this . . .and the next day, that very someone will get in touch with me. Anyway, that's great news for you.

Hi Judy, that's wonderful news! I also believe that opportunities come your way if you open up yourself and if you send the right vibes into the universe. I wish you lost of succes with your new client(s)!!
