I’m not sure which came first, the chicken or the egg. But I’m also not going to waste too much time thinking about it. I do know that in business it’s not what you know it’s who you know. Contacts are everything and networking is crucial to success. Having said that, we all measure success in different ways. Some think that being rich is a sign of success and others just want good old fashion job satisfaction. Setting yourself goals and seeing them through to fruition for me is the ultimate pat on the back, and I can definitely say that these days my goals are getting more and more ambitious. It’s a natural high to succeed at something you set out to do, a massive confidence boost-I think I’m a little bit addicted!
Fairly early on in the Butterfly journey I received a phone call from the shop owner of Shalee in the Isle of Man. A customer of hers had been shopping in her beautiful gift shop and was carrying a bag I had made. She loved it so much she asked for my details and is now a dedicated Butterfly Tree stockist. Days like that don’t come around too often but can really give you reassurance that you are headed in the right direction. It’s great to know that my bags are eye catching to women everywhere.
