Important business lessons.

You can't please everyone.

That is all.

sorry someone was unhappy with something of yours. just remind yourself of the 4,000 happy customers that treasure and cherish the item they bought from you. think of the bride from your post the other day... all those smiles and happy words, don't let one person get ya down.

a certain twitter comes to mind, from that account shit my dad says... hopefully you know what I'm referring to.

"Don’t focus on the one guy who hates you. You don’t go to the park and set your picnic down next to the only pile of dog shit."

loves and hugs :)

I think your work sucks. The buyer is right it looks better in photos, when you get it home it looks like cheap crap.

Wow, strong opinions for someone who posts bullying comments anonymously.

The author of the first comment on this post is spot on with her advice. You can't please everyone, and that's ok, not all expectations can be met by ourselves or by the people we work for - it's a simple reality and is not a terrible one :)

What isn't ok is deliberate, hurtful bullying. Which is nothing more than ridiculous, cowardly, petty and base.

I wore the dandelion comb I purchased from you for my wedding on the 13th and my best friend wore a coral-rose comb I won from you and not only did they look spectacular in person with our vintage dresses, but our photos are beautiful too. They were the perfect finishing touches :)

Please let me know if you'd like to see Emily and keep doing what you do! You rock.

Thank you for demonstrating my point exactly!!

And the problem is, I really want to make that person HAPPY! But some people just don't want it ... they'd rather be angry and punch kittens or something.

My important lesson is that I can't let people like that bother me ...
