DAY 1 RECAP | eCommerce in EIGHT Days, Crazy... or DOABLE?!
Hello there, Insta friends!
Idea to online store in just 8 days... a tall order?! I think NOT! Okay maybe it is, but the only way to reeeeally find out is to read on! I'll be adding to this secret series of blog posts as I complete each day and will publish it right after the 8 days are done, complete with a secret login to check out the progress I've made if you're following along with your own ecomm idea and want some inspo!
Let's jump right in!

ECOMM IN 8 DAYS: The low-down
[...keep scrolling for the DAY 1 recap!]
If you're following me on my personal Instagram, you already know that my mummy has a brick-and-mortar business that's been forced to close in the interests of society at large. We're trying to keep it running from a distance, but that's not an easy task, especially with the uncertainty and the accumulating rent payments.
Luckily, I've had to pull myself out of a few bad situations, and in the process I've learnt where my strengths lie — in creativity and exploiting the best out of a not-so-great situation... making lemons out of lemonade, so to speak!
My mummy is great at organization and running things, so I came up with the super fun idea of using her newfound time to start an online store to (hopefully!) be able to pay the rent... and put it all together just 8 days.
Why eight? Truth be told, I just like to get sh*t done! 8 days may be tight, but it's totally doable (I think?!) so here we are! Plus, Shopify has an extended 90-day trial, so why not?
I'll also be posting the results here in a giant How We Did This-esque post over on the main blog, so look out for that! [...and in the meantime, you can follow along with the store progress on Insta!]
