There are so many wonderful things happening to By Ceci lately that make my little business heart beat a bit faster. It has been very important for us from the very beginning to let By Ceci grow slowly and organically to ensure that it would not implode. We always only invested the company’s profits back to the company to ensure that By Ceci wouldn’t be a burden on our personal finances. So we tagged along slowly but steadily and we are very proud on how far we came in the 4 years since By Ceci started. Especially the growth since last August when we finally launched our website and ventured outside our friends and family circle was very exciting and also a somewhat scary adventure. We knew our trusted customer base believed in our products but getting out of our comfort zone and offering our line to strangers can be very daunting at first. I have always been more of an artist and creator and less of a sales person so growing in that arena has been quite challenging but came with great reward. It is quite fascinating seeing the response of our beloved products out there in the open market.
In the last month we then got some great opportunities in creating custom orders and in cooperating with other local companies and I cannot wait to tell you about it.
Today's post, though, is about another awesome thing that happened to By Ceci. We were featured in the November issue of Handmade Magazine! Handmade Magazine is "the leading monthly print magazine, inspiring handmade soap making cosmetic artisans." and we were featured in their Artisan Spotlight!
