Not the right one

So recently I did an update of my bleesed bath salts and I have actually had some meetings with investors for small sums just to see if I can get some things going a little quicker. Brought my business plan to them, the numbers of possible sales, other companies in the field, profit margins, creation, possible advertising possibilities.I thought it was going well we had a good long discussion and what felt like suddenly to me was them saying thy like the plan. They like what it could build to and they think it can be done. They just believe that I am not the person for it, and due to that they would not invest.

I thanked them for the time, but inside I was boiling. I wasn’t the right guy. It rang in my head over and over. Until after that night I was up because it just made me mad. I wasn’t depressed at the time I thought I could pull it off. Now, for those who don’t know I do have bouts of depression where that feeling does come up and I do second guess myself.

It didn’t happen here. I couldn’t feel bad for myself. I am sure that it wil swing that way later but I made it through before and I will again. Dismissing someone as not good enough though made me wonder something for the future of my own businesses.

People nowadays go through life at speeds that taking in all the details, the little nuances of characters can be lost. It is after all through small nuances that different things can be found, tried, and applied and checked against the status quo to see what works best.

The possibility of a nuanced indidividual not being what people expect for a certain position and still have the skills made me think that workforce issues really boils down more to a workplace issue as well.

I really need to stop thinking of such things when people yell at me about how big their deposit is at work.

Blessed Bath Salts – Business Update

So the business is very slowly beginning to roll. Not only do I write I try to push myself to do more everyday and after hearing some friends of mine not able to get higher quality products that can be safe if their kids get their hands on it I decided to take some time and make a bath salt that even if the little ones were to get their hands in it they need a cup of water more then a posion ward.

That’s not all because since then i had tested multiple times how to get the best item made. I have a touch of ocd and it only shows it sometimes. This last batch though is one though I can be proud of because it was just one of those things that you got done and felt it was right. The plan includes branching out to other products and making it more easily accessable instead of a thirty dollar container or a twenty dollar container for 5-6 oz its going to be roughly about 5 dollars for a portion good for one bath.

We use herbs often used in tea, extracts, fruits and alcohols before instilling this mix in to our salts. Right now we only sell per bathc because we dont want to be one company that cant fufill orders.

It is very satisfying to report though that there is already interest in spas and small salon groups to start carrying these items. When you are wanting good products at competitive prices then there should be people out there who wish to use it. Pictures will be coming soon but it is good to report on this project that their will be more incoming. With three formulas of the bath salts done their will be more products down the line

Blessed Bath Salts – The Saltening

So I am getting nervous. I have found some containers for the bath salts and luckily due to a friend sending me an Amazon gift card I can get a couple set up. The Blessed Bath Salts will not be on sale yet I would like to get some small places carrying it first after a couple more things. Setting the packaging up and getting some of the last parts together is a big step and it means it is the start of getting the word out. Now this means I will be working on this a little bit more, and my other projects will take a slight hit. That is okay my kind of working enjoys that form of chrono-chaos. Often times the reaction can be more potent in the positive then the original action. I am also way too caffeinated to do so much thoughtful typing.

So what makes my product different. First, I use natural ingredients. Tea, extracts, salt, water, herbs and honey or sugar. If you have kids or anyone else you do not trust around more chemically laden fare all this will do is give someone a hankering for a drink. Second, when I say natural I mean natural no chemicals to make it last longer, and it lasts long enough I had actually tested the aroma after a full year and it still held the aroma needed for a warm relaxing bath. Last, but by no means least is value. I am not one to sell things for exorbitant prices. Everyone could use a relaxing bath sometimes. Some people may not want it except for once in a while and we can accommodate that it will be a blessing to those who may find themselves needing a nice lift. Parents, Career trend setters, people allergic to other chemicals found in other bath salts this is something that will be for you. No fancy colorings in the salt no stabilizers needed.
