So today I did a thing.
I registered an ABN.
Purple Lotus Designs.
About 10 minutes before this, I had made the decision to start a line of yoga mats. Impulsive, I know.
“What about teaching?” I hear you ask. “Aren’t you at uni studying nutrition science?” “How does this fit in?” “Where did this come from?”
Well, those are excellent questions! Actually, they were the questions I was asking myself. How did THAT happen!
It is school and uni holidays, I guess. Everyone knows I can’t be left to my own devices for too long or things happen. But it was more than that this time. Something I just knew it was time to do.
For weeks I’d been looking for ‘The Perfect Yoga Mat’. I scoured the internet for days. For hours a day. Comparing. Reading reviews. Getting frustrated. I was obsessed.
That one looks nice…bad reviews on grip
This one looks grippy…ahhhh PVC
great specs…too bad I hate the design
wow…I think I’ve found one!!! Wait, you want HOW MUCH to ship to Australia?
And so it went. I finally choose one, paid the exorbitant shipping fees, and when it arrived I loved it. Almost. Even after all that, my “Perfect Mat” still fell just short of my ideal. But what could I do? What I REALLY WANTED just didn’t exist…
But I guess now it’s about to! So watch this space!
