firstly sorry , I don’t expect a reply … I just need to put this into words.
I feel so low , sad disappointed with my myself.
I left my job 9 months ago and opened my own little gift shop & sell my wares online. every month we cover the costs for the business and make a small bit of profit ( much less than minimum wage) the shop has won an award too.
I can help but feel deflated and im struggling with the wage cut , its much quieter than I thought and I like to be busy , I cant see the positives of what iv achieved and don’t think im doing well … despite everyone being impressed with the shop and that we aren’t making a loss.
im at a cross roads weather to keep the shop or get a job.
iv written out my cv - all be it its not glowing as I think iv under sold myself in respect to the shop and how I put into words what I have done to get to this point. managing a shop and various online outlets.
I have already started to get rejection emails saying im not qualified or didn’t meet their requirements as a manager in retail ( I have worked in retail for 10 years +) managed big and small teams, dealt with recruitment, hr , training sales… have glowing feedback from customers… but im still not good enough…
I just don’t know what to do
