I am Bianca, Owner and Creator of The Witchy Nook. My journey started during a Covid 19 lockdown, while I was still working full time in my day job Covid made me think about what I wanted to do in the long term. I had always wanted to run my own business and after previously running my own Photography business for 4 years, I knew I was on the right path just in the wrong industry. I have always had a love for crystals and all things Tarot, Moon Phases, Astrology etc. While it wasn't always a big part of my day to day life it was always there somehow supporting me through my journey and directing me through life.
I moved to the beautiful town of Port Macquarie NSW in Feb 2021 with my partner. We moved out of a small town and away from our friends. I started a new job, discovered I didn't have many hobbies and it made me want more in life, more for myself. In August 2021 I decided to look at other possibilities and other options for myself and focus on my long term goals. I don't want to work for someone else all my life and make them rich, I want to do that for myself and my family. I have always had the drive to run my own business again and the stars aligned, the moon was in the right phase and with a chunk of Tourmaline in my hand, I took the leap.
After looking into what I could do as a business I couldn't ignore the pull towards crystals, metaphysical and natural self care products. I have always had a love for crystals and all things natural, I have a very large collection of crystals and a love for shopping. Why not put those two things together and turn it into a business? It seemed like such an easy choice, I started right away looking into names, wholesalers and making lists of possible items to sell. It took me about 3 days of googling, creating and changing my mind over and over again.... then "The Witchy Nook" was born.
I sat in front of my computer for about 2 hours before I had the courage to hit "Pay", once I hit this one little button there was no turning back. I had my name picked, my website started and my logo created. Why was hitting one little button so hard? This action would change everything, this would be the start of something that 3 days ago seemed like a silly dream. I laughed, I cried, I worried... but once I hit that button it was like everything changed and I knew it was the right choice.
It was a long month until the official opening but it was the most exciting month of my life. It was filled with LOTS of online shopping, parcels turning up on my door daily, taking photos, creating my website, getting my socials started and having people liking and interacting with my pages. It was full of fun and excitement, laughter and many break downs... But now I look back it is the best decision I have ever made. I know I am on the right path and I am ready to work hard and make this dream come true.
