The last few weeks have been hectic for me - hectic in a good way that is. I have been to numerous workshops, trainings and events and something has become obvious to me. So obvious that I don't know why it has taken me so long to see it!
I work Shoples full time. Most weeks that means 40 plus hours per week. Whereas I work Utility Warehouse very part time. Seldom do I work more than 10 hours per week and most weeks it is more like 5 or 6 hours all week.
And yet, when I look at my earnings, both businesses generate much the same income for me. The big difference is that my Utility Warehouse business pays me more each month than it did the previous month and it will continue to pay me even if I stop working for a while.
So I have decided to stop all the business development and business promotion for Shoples and concentrate on where the easy income is instead. Lesley and I will still be making soap and sending out orders for the time being but how long that will continue I don't really know. Certainly if Shoples continues to exist, it will be in a rather different format to it is right now.
