I have to admit for awhile this was quite depressing for me and I was wondering what was going to give and when. But then I would remind myself of something that I've learned is the case when building a business, things just take time.
For one reason or another, things don't always happen when you think or how you think. So what did I do? I decided to make peace with this. To let it go. After all, sitting around feeling depressed was getting me nowhere and just making me feel worse about things.
And here's what I realized: for one, I wasn't about to give up on PhotoStasher and for two, I'm always very aware when something needs to be done and, being the type A person I am, I get it done quickly and do it well.
So given these two things I concluded that it was absolutely a waste of time and energy to worry, feel depressed, beat myself up, etc.
Then the most amazing thing happened! A short time after I let things be, everything started happening at once...another developer which I wasn't even searching for came into the picture, I came across a UI/UX designer who is absolutely amazing, and some other amazing things are happening that I can't talk about ;)
Having a UI/UX designer to completely redesign PhotoStasher as well as the website has been much needed (as you have probably seen), but it's something that I never thought we would be able to afford at this point in the process, but I was obviously wrong.
You have no idea how long things just seemed to be lagging behind and how, all of a sudden, it was jump started again in ways I could never have imagined.
In the past, I would always worry it to death by trying to plan it all out and I can assure you, not only has this not worked in the past, but I never could have come up with what happened in the last few weeks.
So the moral of the story today applies to every aspect of your life whether you are starting a business or not- stop worrying, stop trying to figure it out, let it go, and you may just be surprised to see what happens next. Above all else, don't give up on the situation/relationship/issue because just when you think nothing good can come of it-- it always seems that something does!
Always happy to share what I've learned and I hope it helps you! Have you been in a similar situation or you're in one now? What happened or is happening? I would love to hear from you...
