Hi there, remember me?
It's been a little while since we last spoke. Over a month in fact.
My last post was about our 1 year anniversary and I was super stoked to release that one...along with the myriad of other ideas I had to share. I had grand visions of what this year would bring for the blog.
Then reality hit me hard at work and in my personal life, and it's taken me a while to get back up and recover from the beating. If I'm being completely honest, I'm still a bit bruised.
See, I'm not what one would call a natural writer. I have plenty of thoughts and ideas to share, but the process of putting them into coherent sentences and paragraphs that anyone would understand takes quite a lot of effort and time. The latter of which I'm sorely lacking.
From concept to release, a single post takes me 4 to 6 weeks to complete and while putting the effort in isn't the issue, keeping up with a 1 to 2 post per week schedule is a challenge.
A huge challenge.
Far bigger than I ever anticipated.
I began planning and writing for this blog 4 months before actually starting it. I had the first month of posts completed before hitting publish on the first one and another 2 weeks worth in process.
I honestly thought I could keep up with the schedule. Sadly, that hasn't happened.
I don't know whether it's because of pandemic fatigue or because it really is too much to run an online shop, a brick & mortar multi-teacher studio, 2 separate social media accounts over 3 platforms, and have a church job. Whatever the reason, I've come to the decision that I need to pivot.
Knowing when to pivot isn't as obvious as one may think. It's also not always the easiest decision to make.
Being the teacher I am, I thought I'd share some things I've discovered. Here are signs that it may be time for you to consider pivoting in your business.
It may be time to pivot if/when:
So here we are at my pivot point.
I will continue to post here, just not as frequently and with no set schedule.
I will continue to bring you awesome, quality resources for you and your students.
I do hope you understand that this wasn't an easy decision for me and that you'll be willing to stick it out with me while I figure out what this business will become.
I don't know when my next post will be, but I will continue to add resources and music to my store so be sure to follow me there.
You can also follow me on Instagram, I'll be sharing about new resources and life stuff over there more regularly.
Until next time my dear friends, stay awesome!
