Decision Time

This past Monday night was pretty darn stressful for me. I returned home from a scrapbooking crop and checked my email like usual. Unfortunately, I had an email sitting in my inbox announcing the end of my business as I knew it. I Remember When (the direct sales company I've represented for a few years) abruptly closed it's "doors" earlier that day. WHAT?!?!

Okay, now what? I had been toying with the idea of striking out on my own, but the plan was to continue to make some extra $$$ through my already-established business before making the switch. Great. I wanted the decision to be MINE, not made for me.

Now I feel forced to scramble to make a quick transition to the new business so as not to lose all the customers/students I've managed to find here in Virginia. Remember, we move all the time and it generally takes me a good year to build up a decent reputation. I don't have a bunch of long-time friends more than willing to spread the word about my business. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed.

So, can anyone recommend a graphic designer? I need a logo and ultimately an e-commerce website. I use a crappy website template currently and do not understand html to the point where I can build my own website.

My sister in law is a graphic designer. I don't know what she is currently working on, but I can send you her info on FB. I don't know that she does any web design though.
Good luck! That's a tough decision!!!

I might know someone who can set up the ecommerce side. I can get you her email. She's great, very professional. I'll get back to you!

If you need help with either of those, I'm available (I'm a professional graphic & web designer, also out my own).
