“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” ~Edward Everett Hale
I spent the evening at home making love products. It reminded me of another era in the company history that is all but forgotten now. There were a couple of small product lines that I never grew enough to contract out, so the pleasure butters and perfumes have always been made by hand, my hands that is- since the beginning. I used to spend hours mixing up scents and melting pure organic coconut, even filling the classic cobalt blue jars I have used as packaging since the beginning of the company, 4 names ago.
I had the hot idea today of starting a small exclusive handmade, aromatically matched love products for couples. It could come with a consult for free, or could come as a set of multiple products. Anyway, I am thinking it is going to launch this month with the SB (special blend) holiday love oil.
Thinking of my new business plan to grow Love Words Press into a Love magazine sponsored by cool, green, love companies. As it turns out I am a serial love entrepreneur, and launching my new book and online love magazine has gotten my creative juices flowing- and you can only imagine where that could go on a Saturday night at home making love products by hand.
I think one of the greatest inventions of my life may well be the love products and lubricants that I have been making up for years. I love to invent love products. Feeling the subtle yet significant difference between ingredients and purity. I realized this has been a primary differentiator of Good Clean Love products and brand.
The key is in the product development and even more important is the testing. Like most things of the heart, the results are more qualitative than quantitative. Anyway, the only thing better than making up love products is using them. It ‘s a hard job, but someone has to do it.
So here are words to love by… invent something new for your love life today. Could be anything from a kind word to a lingering kiss. Or a minty lip balm exchange… make it as sensory as possible so it isn’t some un-embodied idea- the more you can feel it – the better.
