Lessons I learned from June

Lessons I learned from June...

As someone who's still pretty new to this full-time small business ownership, I still have a lot to learn. And one of the biggest lessons from June was that I bit off more than I could chew. 

Between my birthday sale and the mask + earring bundles with my girl Megan to the Coastal Collection launch and my Summer Soiree gift sets with my bestie, Heather, of Prince Designs, I pushed a lot of product in June. I know it and you know it. 

And if there's one thing I've learned over the last  year or so, it's that you can't sell, sell, sell! You have to show up and serve, serve, serve your customers. And you and I are just flat sold out after June.

So here's what you can expect from The Painted Pearl this July...

1) I'm vowing to have a fun, care-free month where I've set zero sales goals for myself. Crazy, right?!? But in truth, you all have championed me along on this new, full-time venture, far beyond my wildest dreams. April-June were banner months for me that have now allowed me to take a month off, without taking a month off. I'm not closing up shop, not by a long shot! I'm just not going to be pushing new inventory. 

2) I'll be diving in to watercolors as I paint my heart out gearing up for the 2021 watercolor calendars you all know and love! I started painting on the 1st and two days in I'm 1/3 of the way through the 24 paintings I need. 

3) Believe it or not, it's time to design my Fall + Holiday collections. And I'll be reaching out to you to help me be the designer! Stay tuned to a future July e-mail where I'll be wanting your input on what you want to see in your accessory line-up this Fall. 

4) Not only will I continue to show up in your inbox, I'm planning to show up in your mailbox with my second annual Snail Mail Send Off. I've pre-painted + hand-lettered 30 watercolor postcards to send out this summer! Stay tuned to a future email to see how you can sign-up to receive one of the 30 painted postcards, no purchase required! 

5) Last, but not least, a month long giveaway!!! And there will be plenty of ways to enter without spending a dime! I've curated 3 sets of giveaways {drawing will be August 1st} that all contain three of my favorite things, valued at more than $75 of goods. The biggest of which is one of my favorites, the Passion Planner Undated Daily Planner in Blush. I'll be sharing how I use mine all month long! {Not sponsored, just a favorite of mine that I purchased for 3 of you!} First way to enter, for every $10 you spend through my website in July, you'll receive one entry! Spend $50, get 5 entries + free shipping. Be sure to follow me on Instagram + Facebook to catch all of the ways you can enter! 
Whew, that may still sound like a lot to you, but it's all good and fun things for me! And I can't wait to take you along for the ride! So let's go make July the best we can and here's hoping the second half of 2020 is kinder to us all.
