Have you ever wondered how to take your hobby and make it into a business that you can do at home?
I thought for a long time that if I just made pretty stuff that people would just come and buy it because I believed the “Make it and they will come,” myth.
I followed my creative path for years, but stayed stuck and broke. It wasn’t enough just to make beautiful things.
I had to learn to make things that mattered to people. And not just any people, the people that got me. Who spoke my language of vintage prom dresses, millinery ribbons, and and polka dots.
Until you start making money from your creative passion, you are in the hobby zone.
The hobby zone is actually great. I loved crafting and creating to my heart’s content. But it doesn’t always pay the bills. And there is no guarantee that it will matter to someone, help someone, or have a meaningful impact. It took me years to figure out how to create work that was meaningful and fun to me and mattered to other people.
When I chatted with my beloved friend Jennifer Hayslip we discovered how we had this struggle in common, and what it took to find our path.
Jenn and I also noticed that certain stuff we tried worked, and some stuff didn’t.
♥ Staying in touch with our authentic strengths, such as love of learning and care of others.
♥ The passion and appreciation for creating beauty is at the foundation of our business.
♥ Identifying our values was key to the framework of our business.
♥ Feeling fear, but doing it anyway.
What did NOT work:
♥ Worrying about if we were doing things right.
♥ Being unsupportive of other creative women.
♥ Blowing off goals.
♥ Waiting for the ‘right’ time.
