The Inside Scoop – iHeartTeas

 iHeartTeas Banner

First, thank you for reading this post.  It always humbles me when I have readership on my personal blog and especially the business one too.  It is something we put our heart and souls into.  Those with small businesses will tell you, you don’t do this to get rich quick.  We do this so we can share our passion for tea.  More often than not running a business, even a small one means around the clock work.  Coming up with new ideas is the easy part, the legal stuff is the most annoying part and bringing your ideas to reality the most rewarding but don’t get me wrong also the most challenging.

Challenging, I think is an understatement.  However, if you can get past the hurdles you will find the feeling euphoric.  Imagine your creation bringing joy to others and finding a place in their hearts as well as yours.  That feeling makes it all worthwhile.  Sometime ago, lets say roughly two years ago I decided it was time I take the next step.  Without even noticing I already had a small but loyal fan base.  I had for years wanted to build my own website.  After all I do have a programing background no matter how long ago that may have been.  Once a programmer always a programmer as they say.  We programmers have an analytical mind; we see the world in flow charts, numbers, organization, and oh do I love my spreadsheets.  It is frightening to think that, but for me that is a reality.  Luckily I am also creative thus having full function of both sides of my brain.  That explains the headaches, right? Just kidding.

As for the website, I decided I better reach out to someone who has been working on them more in the recent past than myself.  I really wanted to create one myself but unfortunately I didn’t have the courage, self-confidence and honestly the time to do it myself.  I reached out to some very near and dear tea friends over at Tea Trade.  I was lucky to have so much support from the unstoppable husband and wife duo Pete and Jackie.  I believe firmly that their faith in me and that of my family, and other friends pushed me to finally get the motivation to build an e-commerce site of my own.  I have always wanted to do it all myself, this way I can see my vision, so it was my Aries stubbornness and fire that drove me to build my own site.  You can still visit me at iHeartTeas.com but now you will see a brand you shiny website built and created by me.  With the exception of maybe two or three pictures all the art, descriptions, and décor is mine.  I am proud of my accomplishments and I hope you have the chance to visit my site and offer me some feedback.
