Sleepless Worries

Sleepless Worries
Let’s try an early morning post today.  My family is still sound asleep and as usual I am awake…thinking.  I am so happy that I am so excited about In the Moment but sometimes I wish I could just turn off my thinking cap so I could get some sleep or actually pay attention when my family is speaking to me.
What is keeping me up this morning?  Let’s see, I’m thinking about our upcomingfashion show at Panache. I am thinking about the decorations that arrived yesterday, how our staging idea is going to work and what needs to get done next.
What else? Our Date Night Kits. They are really great, I am so pleased with them but how do I market them without it costing me a fortune? I recently posted on Facebook a question about whether people would consider having a “home party” so I could promote our date night kits and so far the reaction has been all positive. I don’t want our date nights to be a regular “home party” (or do I?) but I really think this might be the best way to sell out of them for Christmas and Valentine’s Day and will be the most cost effective way of doing that.
The Blue Wings. We have a game on Friday night, are all the details complete? What have I forgotten? I need to review the game day schedule and announcements that Rachel prepared to make sure we haven’t forgotten anything.  Do I have enough volunteers for the night?
We’ve been approached by a potential client to do some work I’m not sure if we want to do but will it lead to other work, that I really want?
Our costumes are selling great but will I be sold out by Halloween?  I hope so, I could use the cash flow for our upcoming Christmas ideas.
I need to get our Easy Party Kits off the ground. They are as equally great as our Date Night kits but I’m not marketing them right, I need more of them, I need adult ones too, I have a ton of stock just sitting here that needs to get moving, I don’t have enough time to write up the party descriptions.
So many ideas, not enough time.  It is mornings like this that I wish I was doing this full time (ok, that’s almost every morning) and had a chunk of money in the bank, three or four keen staff and an office with a warehouse so I could get all my ideas off the ground at once.
Patience, patience…I know.
