March 26, 2017 marks 5 years that Notable Affairs has been open for business! I had absolutely no idea what to expect when I opened my business on Etsy. Would it really work? Could I turn it into a full-time job and be my own boss? I had no clue! I knew I loved designing our wedding invitations, and I knew it would be something fun to do after working at a tv station for almost 9 years, but I really didn’t know if it would be successful. It was something completely different than my previous job, but it was the perfect business idea for someone that pays so much attention to detail.
Now, here I am 5 years later looking back on how successful this business has been. Have there been many hardships and times where I thought, “Is this end?” Definitely. Have there been many tears shed? Well, not too, too many, but there have been some over the years, especially in this last year. It was my most difficult one so far. But I haven’t given up, and I have such a greater appreciation for my business and my customers especially after the past year’s hurdles I had to face.
Notable Affairs has had such a huge impact on my life, and I am so thankful for everything… big and small. As just a small thank you, I thought it would be nice to give back. I often send out coupon codes to my Etsy customers who leave 5 star feedback. 5 stars is the best you can receive on Etsy, and I pride myself on earning all 5 stars on every order. It doesn’t always happen, but I work hard ~360 days a year. It’s a 24-7 job for me, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
To celebrate the grand opening of this website, I’m giving away $50 off the lucky winner’s next purchase from Notable Affairs. Anyone can enter! The winner will be randomly chosen on April 3rd.
Don’t worry if you don’t win this time. There will be many more giveaways on the website, so definitely don’t give up! Also, there’s another giveaway on Facebook that’s a little different, so check it out on the Notable Affairs page.
Don’t forget to join the newsletter, so you don’t miss any freebies, coupons or any other exciting news about Notable Affairs. You can find the newsletter signup in the middle of the home page of this website!
Thank you everyone that has helped make this business of mine a success. I am beyond thankful for my customers, many lessons learned day-to-day, and support from friends and family! I can’t wait to see what happens in these several next years. I have some really big things planned, so stay tuned!
