Where to begin...!? Aargh, so I learned some lessons this week about what not to do with a brand new business (that's the good and the bad news!). Long story short: stick to what you love, what your heart and mind aspire to and, as much as you think another person is looking out for you, only you can truly do that. Recently, in the interest of trying to make a (fruitless) partnership work, I neglected my own style and efforts to craft a unique brand. ..So, after putting this project on the back-burner for almost a week, here is the completed zipper pouch with leather corners and zipper pull! It's been such a weight lifted off my shoulders to finally realize that I just need to be me. I'm a daughter, a wife, a mama and creator of LimaBeanLoves. And I love it that way. What's your story?
