It's been a few days since we returned from Maui. It's taken us that long to get back into the swing of things but we're well on our way to Normal Life, especially here on the blog. Maui was wonderful in so many ways. We saw friends, enjoyed good food, celebrated our anniversary with a night a Lahaina (the first time EVER we've both been away from our kids overnight!!), explored new beaches, and hung out with the family.
It was wonderfully refreshing, and I miss it, but now I'm ready to get back on the horse. I've had so many ideas spinning in my head and this post is mostly a brain dump for those new ideas.
Thanks to my new camera, I re-vamped SoPupuka.com, re-photographing and listing everything. I added some new Mahalo cards and a some Honi Honi decals (I have very few of those and will probably need more) so now that's up and running. It's not perfect but it's better and I'm done endlessly tweaking things.
I want to add a few new trucker hats to the mix, some new decals and some tote bags. No ETA yet, but that's in the works, along with a new @sopupuka Instagram. I've decided that's my platform of choice for the shop and so that'll be up and running in the next few days.
I have another crazy idea that I'm working on. I could either really love it, or really hate it, but since it's been something that hasn't left my mind for along time I think I'm gonna move on it. There's no harm in trying it out, and I've learned that as far as my business goes, there's no reason I can't try new things. I used to think that once you start a business, you're obligated to do whatever it is you started out doing FOREVER, but in looking at the examples of other entrepreneurs, that hardly seems to be the case, and I feel an immense freedom now at the ability to do whatever is speaking to me at any given moment.
