As an artist and entrepreneur, I wear many hats. I am the business owner. The creator. The bookkeeper. The marketer. The brainstormer. The writer. The problem solver. The product photographer. The photo editor. The researcher. The student. The planner. The purchaser. The saleswoman. The quality control. The shipper. The website developer. And much more.
