Good Shtuff is a weekly-ish look at what I'm reading and thinking about. This week, it's all about relationships: with customers, family and limits.
At your service
Just last week I was overwhelmed with a helpful urge and put out the call on Twitter:
How can I help? Ask me anything!
I love the people I got to know over the next hour, so I was delighted to read Jonathan Field's experiment with the same helfpful spirit. Inspired by this post, I'll be offering my help at least once a day, all week.
While helping everyone build the craft business they want is a huge priority for me, my marriage is even more important. I really appreciated this clear-eyed look from IttyBiz at prioritizing relationships for the self-employed.
The relationships in our lives can serve as catalysts and as limits. Recognizing those limits (and figuring out a way to work WITH it) will help you avoid the frustration of smacking into them unwittingly. We'll be talking about all forms of limits in today's class and there's a few hours left to join.
