As much as I hate to say it, I am discontinuing my entire skin care line. I will still carry Soaps, a few scents of Body Cream, Lip Balms (on occasion), and the entire Doggie Sage Line. All Skin Care items are $5. To make the sale even greater, if you enter the code “OnSale2011” before January 1, you will save another 40%!!! Check out all of the skin care items on sale!
Why am I discontinuing the lines? I plan to focus more on my web design business, Hollen Zoo Designs. I found that I loved making soaps, I just did not love doing sales calls. It turns out that 90% of what I had to do was sales. It was just not a good fit and not at all where I shined– actually I would say that I pretty much would receive a F in sales. Maybe I was so bad, because I was too close to the product I was trying to sale, but I think sales is a gift, and I admire anyone that is able to do it with finesse. I did, through the process of owning a business find where I did shine, outside of brewing soaps, was programing websites. Yes, I loved it so much my idea of a fun Friday night is a glass of wine and php code.
Through a natural process, the design business started taking off, leaving me little time for the part of Jackson Sage I despised, sales calls and demos (please please please be nice to the lady doing demos in the grocery store!). Leaving me with two choices, close Jackson Sage or down size. I love Jackson Sage too much to stop making the products. Leaving down sizing the only option.
I feel very blessed that I am am able to make the transition to a smaller business for Jackson Sage, while maintaining all the aspects of the business I love.
