I Enjoy Messaging Shirt

When I first started pressing shirts a little over three years ago. It wasn’t to start a business, it was to be able to where a message on a shirt I wanted to wear.   Also, it was to create my own messages regarding my insurance business to production question which opened a dialog to a conversation about insurance.

What ensued later was people asking me to create a shirt for them.  So, in my spear time, I would create shirts for friends and people I met in passing.  I have since added a Cameo 3 machine that helps produce more products with vinyl.  Below is one of the women’s shirts I have created with my vinyl machine.

The below hooding is also created with my Cameo machine.  This is actually fun to create.

I would encourage anyone who has a great idea about anything to test the waters with all their social media outlets to see if there is any interest in your ideas.  You never know until you try.  Case in point; I created a simple shirt with no graphics that said focused.

I posted a picture of the shirt on facebook with the first week it produced the modest results below.  Nothing to write home to mother about.  But it provided gages that I could work with.  Would the colors matter?  Would the material work? I pursued this and was able to learn a great deal from all my interactions.  I would ask questions on what colors would work best or what color combinations would be a good seller.


The below shirt we changed the font and surprising sold more units with the color blue lettering which was derived through the facebook focused group of just asking people questions.

I am no guru or highly successful individual selling thousands of shirts daily.  But, what I and advise on and encourage you to try is that one thing you are interested in doing.  Perhaps you may have thought your idea may not work or no one will be interested in what you have to sell or service.  The only way you will be sure is to bring it to the market place and see if there is an interest in it.  If not, tweak the idea a little and reinsert it back into the market place to test.   In any event, don’t give up.

Still Moving Forward

Several years ago I embarked on a journey to start my own business from home.  I tried several things and have made money with some.  However, there were somethings that proved to entail more hype than profit.  I have been running my insurance business for four years now and it’s growing.  After I have buried my sister last month, I have this urge to do more, create more, and go above and beyond what I believe I can achieve.

My sister has passed at a young age with so much in life she never got to achieve.  That got me thinking, life is so precious to live in a complacent state procrastinating as if you have all the time in the world to and put your dreams on hold with the mindset “I’ll do it later attitude.”

It’s never too late to start dusting off those dormant dreams of yours.  The time is now!  I once read; “As a man thinketh in his heart, so his he.”  If you believe you cannot achieve your dreams, you can’t!  However, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, with the belief your best days are not behind you but has yet to come.  You are right.

I believe in moving forward more now than ever before. I want to find more fulfilling projects that assist people on a more rewarding level.  What about you?  What projects did you put on hold and on the proverbial shelf?  I am curious about your journey.  If you don’t want to post it here.  You can send an email at writefourlife@gmail.com and I will be sure to engulf myself in the thoughts that you have taking the time to share with me.black and white rise to the top
