I’m not one to ask for help, I don’t ask for favours for myself unless I really really need them so this is a hard one for me. It’s hard for me to acknowledge that I can’t do it all by myself, that I need (rather than want) other people and that things aren’t going fabulously well...
So this is difficult to write.
As you may know I’ve been concentrating solely on getting the flower essences out to where they are needed for the last year. I’ve given up my other forms of regular income so that I have the time and space to do this. I rebranded, re-labelled and re-vamped without any professional help. I know the essences are amazing at what they do, they are needed more and more in the world and it is my mission to get them out there. This is what makes my heart sing, this is what makes me feel alive and worthwhile and passionate. I know the flowers and what they do, I’ve been working consciously with their energies for fifteen years now and I know I’m really good at it. BUT……
Is there always a but ? ....
I’m not selling enough to make a living. (And I’m a practised minimalist when it comes to living expenses.)
It may look like a successful and thriving business from the outside – and on many levels it is and slowly (too)slowly things are improving, word is getting out, and I know things take time to get established and that I’m not a very patient person and the economic climate is very uncertain at the moment etc etc etc.
However I really don’t want to put all my ‘work’ and experience to one side just to pay the bills –these magic essences deserve more than that – as do the people they help.
So I’m asking YOU to help me.
So here is a list of Things you can do that really make a difference
1) Buy my essences for yourself and loved ones (they make great gifts, aren’t expensive, are ec-friendly and useful)... Because they are so effective I know this means that you don’t have to repeat buy often but if, when you are having a hard time, you remember that the essences are here that would be great.
2) You can recommend flower essences to your friends, your work colleagues, your clients, your family and their children –anyone in fact who is having a hard time with their lives and needs extra support. I am always happy to help with choosing which essences people need. And if you need me to tell you more about them so you can pass on the information just get in touch.
3) Talk about the essences on social media especially if you have used them and they helped you (thank you so much if you already have – it helps A LOT).
4) If you visited the website and then didn’t buy anything please tell me why not .This is VERY useful information. It’s hard to know what is wrong if no-one tells you.
5) If you know (or are) a journalist, influencer, blogger please ask them to consider featuring flower essences on their platform. The more that people know about what they are and how they can help the more they are likely to buy them. I am happy to write articles, supply images, do interviews, speak on podcasts,give talks in person, send out essences for people to try –whatever it takes really...
6) If you know (or are) a retailer who has a space where the essences would fit I am always looking for new outlets. On-line sales are easier and more profitable but don’t get the essences seen by people who don’t already know about them.
7) Remember that I am also available for consultations. You can come to me here in Wincanton (and very soon various other places in Somerset) but I also do on-line consultations which are just as effective in choosing which essences you need right now and mean that you get your own personalised blend specific to your needs made up for you. This is what I love doing most.
8) Get in touch if you have any questions. The more I know about you (the most important part in all this) the more me and the flowers can meet your needs. Tell me what you are having trouble with. Ask anything you don’t understand about essences and how they work.
9) Remember that we send our essences worldwide and that the postage is the same wherever you are and however many you order ...(for now anyway)
10) Share this post.
Flower Essences are incredible. After all this time they still amaze me at how effective they are, what they can shift and how people can change by using them. Please help me to be able to carry on the work I was born to do. Imagine how great you will feel when our essences are used everywhere and by everyone and you can say “I helped that happen”
With much Love and Gratitude,
