“Hello and welcome to my store. Take a look around and let me know if you have any questions. If you’d like to try anything on, we have a fitting room in the back. We also have snacks and drinks, if you’re hungry.”
I think I’d greet you like that if this were this a brick & mortar store. Or maybe not all of that, depending on how you react to the first bit. My years of retail experience has taught me not to “over greet”. Heck, just visiting places where you get too much script is tiring. That said, why am I writing all of this? This company is more than just a business. It’s time I could have spent with my daughter or husband, or it’s time I could have spent in my vegetable garden. Still, if by taking some time to work on my “shop” can help at least one person, that’s good enough for me.
I was sick this past year thanks to the chemotherapy drugs that were working to save my life. At that time, I had family helping me, both biological and not. I don’t want anyone else to be in a similar situation, so I sell insect-repellent maternity clothing. I didn’t start Juno, my sister did. But I believe what she does: that having stylish maternity clothes or insect-repellent clothing shouldn’t be an either/or choice, especially with Zika and all the other stuff out there.
So, join me as we navigate motherhood together!
