I also realized that the overuse of the air conditioning was running up my energy bills.
I never expected my jewelry business to expand so quickly. I was selling a few pieces here and there, but it wasn’t until I sold a piece of jewelry to a well-known blogger. I didn’t even know she was a blogger when she purchased a delicate bracelet that I created. She then bought the necklace and earrings that matched. Soon, I found that I was being inundated with requests for my jewelry. The blogger had put pictures of my jewelry online and she told everyone how beautiful they were. My business took off so quickly that I didn’t know what to do. I had to work day and night, but I wasn’t sure I could work that long without some help. I was already a coffee drinker, but now I was drinking espresso. When summer came, I was turning on the air conditioning. I had the thermostat so low that my fingers were freezing. I was having a difficult time trying to move my fingers because of how low I was setting the thermostat. I also realized that the overuse of the air conditioning was running up my energy bills. I was trying to fulfill all of my orders in a timely manner. With the added cost of the AC unit running, I realized I could easily hire someone to work for me. Within a month, I put on two new hirees, I was able to set the thermostat so I had a normal amount of AC, and my business was thriving. I have my air conditioning and the people I was now working with, to thank for that.
