Hi

my name is julia, i'm 51 52 in june, i have a 24 yr old daughter and have been divorced for three and a half years after a long marriage. i was originally told i had rheumatoid arthritis but the diagnosis was changed a year later to fibromyalgia. i have it all over my body and am in constant pain.

i'm trying to get a bridal accessory business going again after it stalled when i seperated and divorced.

any help and advise that can be given would be gratefully received!

:welcome: to our FibroFamily Julia :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

Making use of the various Social Media sites, as well as having your own website is a good place to start. Have you looked into whether there are any regular wedding fayres that take place in and around the area where you live/can travel to??? As well as having a stand/stall at them, whilst you are in your start~up phase, you could use them for market research, see what designs and themes may be popular, and use the info you gather to help you develop your Unique Selling Point (USP). You could also look into any freebie publications that may be distributed around where you are and see what having a feature and/or ad in them would entail.

You could also see if there are any small/start~up business advisers, they should be able to advise you about any sort of help there may be available to help you get things going etc.

Hopefully, this time things will start rolling for you, and you'll be on on your way to a successful venture :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:
