One of the most difficult and frustrating things about starting your own business is trying to get attention in the sea of plenty. As a jewelry artist I find that I am but a nano-second in time. There are millions of other talented artisans out there who are making a living doing what they love. How do they get there? Seriously, I’d like to know!
I am not the most patient of people (I can hear my husband snigger) and I can’t stand to just ‘sit and wait.’ But one thing I am learning in this process is that I have limited control over a desired outcome. I cannot force it. Take a deep breath and learn to let things be. Why is this so hard?
If I am honest with myself I think I have made tremendous progress in the last two years But (always a ‘but’) shouldn’t I be further along by now? I guess I will get there albeit at a slower pace than I prefer but it beats the alternative.
