I've been there.

As a creative myself, I understand all of the above.  When I started my handmade journey, it was hard.  I wanted to do everything!  I was jumping from one craft to the other. Buying ALL the supplies that went with each one. I would jump on the hottest trend and try to add my own flair and sell it because I thought that this person with all the likes must know what they are doing, and I needed to do it too.

I also thought trying to make things for everyone would get me a greater opportunity to make money.  Wrong. Let’s not talk about pricing. I thought that I needed to give discounts or price myself low because I was new to the industry. I’m embarrassed to say what I charged for my first skirt. Let’s just say it didn’t even pay for my supplies.

The funny thing is I was confident and successful in other businesses, but not in this. I was insecure and constantly questioned myself.

Then I had an epiphany. I was feeling insecure about my stuff because I was insecure about myself. I was going through a rough patch at that time in my life and crafting helped relieve stress. I didn’t feel great about myself, so it made sense that those emotions were attached to things I created. Once I began to work on myself, how I felt about my products changed.  I got clear, and that helped to me remember all the things that made me successful in my other businesses.  I began to apply these corporate strategies to my business, and it began to grow.

Over time I began to share my knowledge and it helped many people move past their blocks and find success in their businesses. I have successfully coached several crafters to have five figure months in business, but the most important thing is that my students have had a mind shift that changed their lives.

The items you create come from you.  You see something or have an idea and you are able to figure it out and create it.  It comes from your mind through your body and out of your fingertips into the world. It’s personal. The saying, “I’m an artist and I’m sensitive about my ‘ish.”, is more than just a quote it’s the truth.  What we create is a part of us and we are sensitive about it. 

That’s why the business of crafting can be more difficult than other types of businesses. Because the items we sell are created by us, the feelings and beliefs that we have about ourselves are attached to them. It’s different from buying wholesale items and reselling them.  If we didn’t make it there probably isn’t an emotional attachment there.

My approach to building a handmade business is more holistic. We will work together to shift your mindset from letting fear stop you to feeling the fear and doing it anyway.  You will become open to the idea that you really can win and that will prepare you to absorb the information that will be taught. 

The fact is that if you don't believe that you are worth it, you will not do the work that it takes to build the business that you want.  I am not going to tell you that this is easy, it's not.  But I promise you it will be worth it.

This is the system you have been looking for.

I created this program to help creative entrepreneurs ditch the overwhelm, build a real and thriving business on a firm foundation and most importantly help them set up a new belief system that goes beyond business.
