This week I feel super productive. I made shot two quick video tutorials, hosted a live video and now I’ll be working on my bag business for the rest of the week.
I was supposed to get some models for the photoshoot due Sunday, but guess what the free ads site is giving me all sorts of trouble. They deleted my ad THRICE for not complying with their laws. They think I’m a modeling agency or something. Ugh! So, based on the current situation I might NOT have the photoshoot. Also, the backdrop I ordered got lost in the mail! It’s like right when I want to start a business, things have turned against me in all ways possible.
