Holy cow. Where did September go?! So much happened for Mint To Sell in September it felt like one big whirlwind. So instead of writing a bunch of blog posts about each thing I decided to just re-cap the month for you so we can move on to better topics like the DIY backsplash I'm doing :)
So here's what happened since the last time I posted.
One Woman Shop Baton
I held the One Woman Shop Baton! It was so cool to connect with other women entrepreneurs from around the globe! If you are a fempreneur I highly recommend checking them out, and possibly holding the baton yourself. It was so great to see that other women connected to a day in my life.
The rules were simple, log into the Instagram account on your day then post a few photos of your day. Pretty easy, right?! I was lucky and my day aligned with the first day of the Downtown Raleigh Home Show. So my day was a bit more exciting than a usual day at the office (my guest room) where I send emails and work on inventory. But, I bet many entrepreneurs would have connected with that as well!
My favorite part was just how many people understood the struggle when it's late and you can't decide if you need wine or coffee. And I absolutely loved how many agreed that wine was the better choice!
Downtown Raleigh Home Show
I participated in the Downtown Raleigh Home Show. It was exhausting. And I learned a lot. It's still hard to say how it effected business but if anything I think it legitimized this company as one who wants to be full-time and professionally providing home-staging. This is important because there are many in the area who provide staging services on the side or as a hobby.
I also learned there are way more people flipping houses in this area than I ever imagined. This is great news because I love working with flippers! Woot woot!
Worked With Two New Flipping Teams
Ok, not new to the area, but new to me. Flipping teams are my ideal client. It helps that both of these teams were really sweet and easy to work with. Highly recommend reaching out to them if you need to sell a house quickly, The Revive Guys and The Inspiring Investment. This by no means implies that I do not enjoy working with other clientele. It's just that when I work on flipped houses it makes me feel like I'm on HGTV :)
You can see their work (and mine) in the Portfolio area of this site.
We Hired An Intern
Woot woot! We met Zachary at the home show. He is an interior design student who has an interest in home staging. Perfect, right?! I am so excited that Mint To Sell is in the position to not only need an extra person on the team, but can support one.
I am hopeful that this is only the beginning and that Mint To Sell will continue to grow at a rapid rate. Can't wait to see what the rest of the year holds for us!
