A Day in the Life of an Indie Maker

One of the most common questions we receive is “What does your day look like?!” People are often intrigued by the process behind our business, so we would love to give you a glimpse into what our day looks like!  We’re going to take a look at Kristen, our CEO’s, typical day from start to finish.

Kristen’s Day

  • 4:30am – Wake up, check emails, check orders, do a load of laundry
  • 5:00am – Take a shower, get dressed, pack up breakfast and lunch. (Sure to use Beach Bumming, Coffee Break, or Balance soap for face and body. Follow-up with Face the Day Scrub.)
  • 6:00am – Pack up any orders and prep for mail pick-up
  • 6:30am – Head to the local coffee shop and pay for a coffee that she could very well make at home (a little daily luxury), then drive to work
  • 6:45am – Arrive at school, prep lessons, grade papers
  • 7:00am – 1:45pm – Teach a bright group of sophomore and senior high school students
  • 2:00pm – Check emails, check social media presence
  • 2:30pm – Check inventory, order any needed supplies
  • 3:00pm – Begin making inventory, check on drying soaps
  • 7:00pm – Take a break for dinner
  • 7:45pm – Plan lessons, grade some papers
  • 8:30pm – Plan social media, check on orders, return emails
  • 9:00pm – Design and quality-check labels, package products
  • 10:00pm – Create tomorrow’s to-do list
  • 10:30pm – Get to bed for a full night’s rest. (Moisturize with Butter Me Up.)

That’s just a typical day in the life!
