I’ve been finding myself getting bored and disinterested with posting crystals for sale online; it can be fun but it can also get monotonous after a while. I have been wanting to do YouTube videos but I was feeling anxious about it, so for almost a year I practiced first with doing these random talking videos on my Instagram. Gotta thank Ryan Orrico for that! I’m happy to say that they worked very well and have really boosted my confidence in talking.
But you’re probably wondering: what does any of this have to do with crystals?
A lot actually.
You don’t have to be an annoying sales person, but you still have to talk about what you’re selling to people. You also have to connect with them somehow. In spite of all the technology we have available to us, I’ve learned that people still crave real, human relationships and connections. I mean we ARE still human after all, right?
So that’s one of the reasons why I took myself out of my quiet, introverted comfort zone. There was something nudging me towards this, my intuition perhaps? I also felt that in a sea of crystal shops and sellers, I had to find ways to stand out somehow.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still introverted, but now I can speak confidently when someone asks me about the crystals and stones I sell.
There’s a lot of moving parts when it comes to owning and running a small business; a lot of it is also tied to personal development and growth. You’re going to learn a lot about yourself – what you are or aren’t good at.
I hope to make more of these. I also really like playing in After Effects.
