Hey there, fabulous Soul Feat community!
Today, I want to talk about something that often gets lost in the glossy world of social media—reality. I want to peel back the curtain and share a little secret: Soul Feat isn't exactly raking in the dough. Nope, not even close. In fact, I haven't paid myself since the beginning of this wild small biz adventure. Instead, I've been channeling my inner superhero and using every personal penny to keep this ship sailing and this small biz donating.
So, you might be wondering, why have I been donating "profit" to charities when the business isn't actually making any profit for itself? Well, it's not exactly the most conventional business plan, but it's what I believe in. When I started Soul Feat, my mission was all about spreading goodness, giving back, and finding my purpose with hand drawn, fun, eco friendly items. And let's be honest, I have decided this is the cost of doing MY business.. My "profit" has been more like what I should be donating if the biz wasn't dipping into the red. Picture this: 20% of an item sold (minus the cost of goods), but let's conveniently forget about all the other biz costs and startup overhead. Oops!
Now, let's debunk a myth. Just because a small business looks fancy on social media, posts like clockwork, or launches new products with a sprinkle of confetti doesn't automatically mean they're rolling in cash. Trust me, it just means we're hopelessly devoted to our dreams. At least, that's how I see it. So, if you see me winking at lady luck, go ahead and wish me oodles of good fortune cuz its going to be a long and bumpy road for this shop! But I am determined to make it succeed and THRIVE while doing what I set out to do. Give back, spread fun, and do good for this earth.
Small Shop, Big Impact.
