Do you ever feel like running your handmade business is full of trial and error? You get a great idea for a new product. You spend endless hours creating it and then you go to find all the material suppliers only to find that one of the materials is no longer made. Now you have to remake your sample with something else that is available.
This is just one example, but you get the picture. We get so excited about executing our ideas but then it just seems like we run into endless roadblocks.
You are not alone! I’m actually going through one of those type of struggles this week. And sometimes you feel like everyone knows and you’re a complete failure. But guess what? The reality is that only YOU know. So it’s only YOU who can pull up your big girl pants and push forward.
I want you to know that we ALL go through trial and error moments in our business and life. These are the times you need to remind yourself what you would tell a friend in these circumstances and heed your own advice. Go for a walk. Sleep on it. Whatever you need to do to put yourself in the right frame of mind to push through.
Yesterday I thought I was going to give up. But this morning I woke to a new day and new attitude. I can do this, and so can you!
