“Do not wish to be anything
but what you are, and try
to be that perfectly.
Saint Francis de Sales
What you are
So as I go about with my “Pinterest Management for Catholics” work I find that I not only am I a bit overwhelmed getting it all together I have small inner battles with how good a Catholic I am to be starting such a business.
I decided I am as I am. Certainly not the fervent “nun” of yesterday but there are as many variations of being a “good Catholic” I think as there are Catholics. Each of us goes forward with the truth as we believe at each moment and that I think is all God asks of us.
One thing though I will say is that focusing on a business with a Catholic viewpoint is helping me get a bit more centered on my Catholic faith. I think it helps to have a mission in life to direct my thoughts and actions more clearly.
Online Catholic Store
Moved forward putting up an online store to sell so that I can practice creating ads for products and working with Pinterest promotion strategies. To start with I am working just as an Amazon affiliate selling products that I like from Amazon.
My first product I am experimenting with is the St Joseph Catholic Sunday Missal for 2020. It seems to be a popular product (#1 on Amazon for Christian Prayerbooks and Hymnals) and the price is only $1.99 so I could afford to buy it myself and see how the whole process works.
I haven’t tried yet to create a “buy pin” for it on Pinterest that will be a project for tomorrow. The next things to add will be the 101 Inspirational Stories. Will share a link to the store in a few days as things pull together.
