    Hello online retailers,

    Just wondering if anyone has the time to jot down what a typical day in your life looks like..
    I’ve read a few different stories online about what a typical day looks like for a small business owner from home. Just out of curiosity, wanting to see if any FS members would like to share their typical day with juggling orders, marketing, home life etc.

    Aiming to open an online store from home by end of the year.
