I'm A Greeting Card Writer . . . (CEO Rant)

I've wanted so long to be a greeting card writer. I've submitted to Blue Mountain Arts several times, I looked up Hallmark but they have very strict guidelines on everything. But you know what? Never let anyone dictate your future. In the year of 1993 I came up with the bright idea to have my own greeting card line. After all, I was already a poet making a name for myself, since I wrote everything under the sun, developed my own writing style and loved words and greeting cards so much that to me,  this was a perfect fit.  So I started setting up the structure of my cards but the vision just wasn't setting in. Nor were the words. It wasn't coming together. But I was young and I guess I had a lot more living to do before I could truly express in this art form. At least, that's what I told myself. However, in my mind, since I've received so many greetings, and had also given a sundry of countless cards, I felt that I was connected to them in some kind of way

Where Do I Begin?

W hether I'm on a speaker's panel, doing a book signing, supporting others or pitching QS Simple Treasures Greetings & Collections. Among all other questions, the most popular of choice I run into is;  where do I begin? I have to say, I love that question because I used to feel that way when I was in the beginning of furthering my passions with purpose. I found that often, some people will really encourage you, as well as fluff you with all of the what I call "Build To Nothing" talk. They invite you to seminars and other events with promises to answer that question and when you get there, they begin spouting platitudes that you've heard all too frequently before such as: Believe in yourself You can do it Build a team Find someone who believes in you and what you're doing Go for it Take a leap of faith and trust yourself E tcetera, blah blah and so on. Don't get me wrong, all of that is good, it is, especially for pep-talks if that's

Reinvention . . . Thoughts of an Entrepreneur

R einvention is an interesting word, to me, it states change, newness and inspires you to think outside of the box to become a visionary. Ignites the spark within you to take charge, grab the bull by the horns to manifest what you see in your head.  When you set out to achieve a dream-goal of starting a business, you begin one way, even though you may not know where to begin, or how, you start, and sometimes for a lot of us, we are figuring it out as we go. So the language of that is working with what you have until you can do better, producing one product at a time and using that revenue to move forward to producing another because you don't have enough money to launch them all at once. As well as getting your paper work in order to be a legitimate business.  One item, whenever you can because you know that you have to begin like this or you will never begin. You must step out on faith and trust that the Lord has you. Assuming you believe that way .  But it has to be d

Farewell To Our 1st Logo

G one but never forgotten  however, in life, upgrades, changes for better, following suite to progression is a must. This logo came at a rushed time when everything seemed to be falling in our path to stop us from launching on our set deadline. But we were determined. πŸ˜‰ We had everything but our logo, so a friend said "give me a description and I will make you one right quick" and, there you have it. Turns out, it was the cutest thing and we all loved it for what we needed at the time.  This logo is very significant to us as it became apart of our stapled beginning and while we are constantly growing and changing everyday. We will put this in our Hall of Fame Logo folder and bring it out every now and again to never forget how we started.  And while the logo has changed, the message remains the same.

Progression . . . A note from the CEO

When I see the quote that you view listed above, I wholeheartedly feel wonderful about it. Because not many people get that idea. But that is truly how I live my life. For years, I've worked hard and because I indulge in many things, it probably looked to others that I was all over the place, you know, scatterbrain. But that didn't matter to me, because I knew they couldn't descry my vision. For years, I would say, I'm going to write anthologies, outset my own greeting card line, vend my poems, inaugurate my own tea and later a creative cup collection.  They couldn't descry my vision However, to others, even though knowing me and seeing that I've executed and achieved other feats, it still looked as though, I may not progress in accomplishing these particular dream goals. Simply cannot fathom the heights But what I notice is that sometimes, it's not always that they wish you non-success. Its that their way of thinking is limited. It's that t
