We certainly don’t need them here at Cupple HQ, as we appear to be growing our own!

As small business owners, we often hear about the time pressures felt by Founders who, at the beginning, are having to do everything to get their business started.  From creative input, marketing, ordering, packing, unpacking, phoning, billing, posting and chatting to all the amazing people you meet along the way.  Eve and I have become accustomed to multi-tasking, mixing it up, making it up and squashing much more into a day than we have ever had to before.

We wouldn’t change a thing………..

Since Cupple launched in July 2021,  we have already completely sold out our first stock order and happily received the second with 4 brand new colours in time for Christmas.  Our warehouse is full to bursting!  We will be going to lots of Christmas fairs in the next two months which we love as they are a great way to meet customers in person and introduce them to Cupple.

But first there is Halloween and the matter of those cobwebs!  Accepting all the joy, challenge and reward that comes with a new business also requires understanding that you can’t do it all.  And sometimes, some things have to give. For us, it is not peering too closely into the dark corners, and leaving our little eight legged friends in peace for a while longer.

Closing with a shout out to all small business owners.  We hope you are getting through the days, managing all the requests and orders, and also looking after yourselves ahead of hopefully a busy few business months.

All the best

Amanda and Eve
