But For Real This Time…

I'm starting a business

I’m taking a break.

Yes, I know. You’re probably thinking to yourself, “But Vella, didn’t you just take an unannounced hiatus a month ago?” And yes, I did.

But this time it’s different.

First of all, this post is completely un-edited and raw. I’m writing this really late at night because I need to get it off my chest, but I’ve spent the majority of the evening planning. So I thought I would tell you exactly what it is that I am planning.

I want to own my own business.

This is a huge step for me, coming out and saying it, sort of, typing it, I guess? Whatever. It’s huge because my dream to own my own business is still very much a fetus… Okay, I tried to make a pregnancy analogy, and it just ended up wrong.

This idea is so new, fresh, and young. Mercury’s retrograde has definitely been affecting me by halting all current projects I’m working on (why do you think it took me 3 days to publish something here), and bring to light ideas that are seeded deeper within my imagination and soul.

I want to own my own business.

And that business is going to be multi-faceted and complicated, but it is going to be mine. I would love to work full-time writing for this blog, creating YouTube videos, and also owning my own shop. I’ve been creating jewelry for a while, as well as other things like ouija boards and tarot bags, so my shop would be a New-Age, Occult-Magick shop of some sorts. And I want to begin reading tarot for people.

I want to own my own business.

I feel this with every fiber of my being, and this passion has been developing–growing inch by inch–since January. I know this path is where I need to be. Working from home, developing my own spirituality, and helping others develop theirs is all I can see myself doing in the future. In the near future.

There are so many ideas bubbling in my head every day, but with the current state of things in my life, I cannot find the time or energy to even start. I’m surprised I am even up writing this right now.

And that’s why I need a break.

As you know, I have really been struggling with burn-out and just feeling lousy for a while now. To be completely honest with you, I have lost a lot of control of everyday things in my life like getting to work on time, doing laundry, and just having enough energy to hang out and watch TV. And to be even more honest with you all, it stems from some mental illness that I have been battling, and it has taken a turn for the worse.

No. I am not trying to pull for attention. One: I don’t know why that is the first reaction for mental illness in people my age–that they must be faking it for “attention” and Two: IT’S NOT EVEN THE POINT.

Anyway, maybe one day I’ll get into the nitty-gritty and let you guys into that part of my world. For now, all you need to know it that it’s been hard.

I just need time to think.

I honestly don’t know how much time. I want to do things like write a bunch of blogs posts or film & edit a bunch of videos in advance to schedule out over a few weeks. I also want to create my first launch of inventory for my blog. I need to make a business plan, terms, contracts, and media kits as well.

I’ve tried to do all these things in the past either on a hiatus or whilst writing for the blog, and between school, work, internships, and a social life, it was pretty hard. But because I am (basically) done with university, I feel like I have more time to commit to solidifying my ideas.

And I also need time to just whip my regular, ol’ life back into shape, so I can come back to blogging strong, secure, and full of energy. (and organization.)

I’ve never done a post like this before.

And it’s weird. And I truly hate it.

I really want to be back into writing and filming next week, but who knows. (Okay, it’s not that ominous.)

Because I feel like a huge jerk for pulling this (again), I thought I would let you guys in on the specifics of what is to come. I plan on using my Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to keep you guys updated every step of the way. I would follow my Instagram or Twitter for the most frequent activity, and Facebook for the big stuff.

What’s to come:

  • A Witchcraft 101 YouTube series: Expect a video a week that is a short, but interesting and different approach for learning witchcraft from scratch
  • A boatload of usable spells for everyday: This is something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’ve done it once on here. But I’d like a majority of my posts to be easy (and printable) spells for everyday use.
  • An Etsy shop: I am probably going to sell talismans, power bracelets, tarot storage bags, and ouija boards, all hand made by me. It will be your basic occult shop.
  • Affordable Tarot Readings: I will admit it, I am a newbie when it comes to reading tarot, but I have a lot of intuition for a beginner. I will probably start on Fiverr, and then work my way to my shop in the future.
  • A Podcast: About what? I am not sure yet. I’ve wanted to have a podcast forever (I did major in Audio Production, after all), but this is definitely going to be far off in the future.

Are there any ideas you’d like to see? Anything new and exciting that you’d like for me to write about? I’d love to get some feedback!

  1. first I have a question: Will this beautiful shop includes the possibility to buy from Europe? Also I want to say I like your no bullsh1t attitude. And I like to say I am comming out of a burnout right now, through magic and mindfullness. furthermore you have so much on your plate isn’t it to much for now?
    then I Want to say I love your dog. lots of love and goodluck. greetings Maria

    1. Thank you so much Maria! I am hoping that the shop will be able to ship anywhere. I am planning on running the entire shop here, on November Legend instead of Etsy, so it might take me some time and configuring to figure out prices/times on shipping.

      Burnouts are the worst, and I’m glad I’m not the only one going through it! Thanks for stopping by! It means so much to me! <3
