#14~Create and launch a website for the business

I actually managed to complete and launch this towards the end of December, I just haven't been able to post about it until now. I've been a happy blogger and definitely believe a blog is an important thing to have for any small business. I realized a few months ago how much a website was needed for *Snickety Snacks*. I'm all about a clean and sharp way to find the information I need, and a blog wasn't the way to go for me. Thanks to the d.i.y. website, I was able to put together my website all by myself. It was like putting together a PowerPoint presentation! I loved it! What do you think? If you have a minute to check it out, please do, and let me know what you think!(click on the picture)

Changing things around on the site is super easy, so please let me know if you have any suggestions for improving it. I'm so happy that my little biz is growing!

It's Battle Time

My evil nemesis has returned...
Flat Surface Clutterer Dude
{or something like that}
After a week of this, I'm done. Today I'm fighting back!
I'm sure for most people this is nothing, but I've failed to do my 'Reset' drill each night, so I'm dealing with little piles everywhere as a consequence. Flat surfaces all over our place aren't safe. It gets worse in my bedroom. I don't function well with spaces like this, so I'm taking some time to fix it once I get the little man on the bus.
It's Reset Time!

All For One Page

Usually I end up buying a decorating type magazine after flipping through it and finding a bunch of pages/colors that I like. I beat my own personal record a few days ago. I bought the latest edition of Country Living because of one page. I'm so happy that I took a few seconds to flip through this magazine(despite not liking the cover at all!). After starting my own little business I have been able to meet so many amazing women who started right where I did and have created successful careers based on their dreams.
Greta and Kristen from Layer Cake Shop are officially a part of my 'Inspiration Women' list. If you've ever looked online for cute baking supplies to add some extra oomph to your treats, you've probably come across their shop. As much as I love what the shop has to offer, hearing the back story behind the creation of their business was better. Long story short, Greta started things off with a small Etsy shop, snagged her retail experienced friend Kristen to help things grow, and with an 8% increase each month and salaries for the both of them, growth hasn't been a problem. The best part to me? They do it all out of Kristen's home! If that's not inspiring, what is? So this little one page article has been nicely slicked out of the magazine and stands with the rest of the women I'm inspired by. Who knows, maybe some day I'll be able to inspire someone else!
