I am sure many of you as sewers, quilters, and crafters dream of the day when you could spend your time making, creating or teaching what you love while being able to pay the bills and care for family and friends, too. We all read each other’s blogs and cheer one another on when we see a particular blogger’s work sky rocket off the web pages into our own homes through their patterns, fabrics, Etsy shops, studios, workshops and books.
Often, we don’t necessarily see ourselves as being “one of the lucky few.”
The mere thought of actually starting a business, especially for creative people, can be quite overwhelming. Even if we have some business background or supportive business folks in our orbit, creative brains don’t always match up with traditional business models of working. FEAR, FAILURE, STRESS, NO TIME seem to be the key words that keep us from moving forward with our dreams.
If you have ever thought of doing something different in your life, changing what is not working for you and starting a business you can call your own, it is not as difficult as you may think. I would encourage you to explore some new and simple business tools to help you focus your vision and create your dream.
