Recently I spoke about my hobby at a 100-year old women's club (yes they accept men). The coordinator asked me twice if I was going to tell them about myself...haha.
How do you condense 68 years onto one sheet of paper? At this age, there are so many stories to tell. I covered how I learned to sew, my travels in a nutshell from Maine to California via Florida and a few international countries (17 or 18) thrown in, some for fun, some for work. And of course my tie hobby.
Importantly, having a little business requires many hats - marketing, sales, accounting, technology, social skills, yada, yada, yada. I like face-to-face sales best because I enjoy meeting the people. The ones that like my products are usually artistic. Some buy, lots don't, that's okay. Some become friends, some remain acquaintances. It's a whole new world when you retire. Make it good for you!
