Have you ever had these thoughts run through your head?
I will start my business when......
- When I get my schedule organized
- When I clear out a spot
- When I feel less stressed
- When I feel like I know what I am doing
- When my kids are on a consistent schedule
- When I lose some weight
- When........(fill in the blank)
One thing I have learned from running a business is that you are never completely ready and you most likely will not have ALL the answers when you get started.
I receive many many emails asking me all sorts of questions about getting this particular business started. What will I need? What if I am not an artist? What if I have never worked with clay before? What if I can't get my plates to look as good as yours? What if I don't do it right? What if I mess up?
You get my point?
My answer always boils down to this. Do you want to do this business? If the answer is yes, I will show you the way! But know this...
- You will get it!
- You will learn all you need to know.
- You WILL mess up!
- You WILL make mistakes.
- You WILL become a professional in your industry.
- You WILL have fun along the way!
Just like life, starting a business is a journey. You don't always know where it will take you but you jump in, do your best, and good things will follow.
When I started my business back in 2000, I had NO experience with clay. I had never created anything with clay before. But what I had was the desire and the knowing that this business was for me. I knew that I needed to start this business, even though I did not feel ready.
Thankfully I followed my heart and started something really great!
It is my desire to not only train you & help get you going in your own business, but to start you on a journey that is so very rewarding. The reward for creating a piece of art for a Mom & Dad of their little baby is priceless. Seeing a new mom hold her little baby boy's handprint plaque, run her finger over the little hand and foot, is a beautiful moment. The experiences that you will have on this journey are priceless.
So, even though you do not feel ready...have some faith in yourself. Know that I will be here to help you and answer your questions and encourage you along the way. :)
I really and truly am excited for your new chapter and all the experiences you will have in your life because you took the chance on YOU!
