You are more than your business.
You make things, you sell things, you write things…and then there’s all the other things you want to learn about…
You have to pick just one thing. (Right?)
Focus on One Thing and build your business around that. (That's what they say…)
So you've tried it. You’ve boiled your gorgeousness down to one really marketable skill or product.
You've focused your attention on it, and let the other stuff take a back seat.
But it’s hard. You get side-tracked thinking about all the other stuff you love, the other stuff you want to do. And now you’re doubting if this creative business life is even worth it.
As a maker, as a enthusiastic creative, you don't have just one thing. You have zillions. You read, write, photograph, make, knit, …..
To pick just one is way too limiting, way too…stifling.
If you're tired of trying to be just one thing,
If you’re afraid of introducing all those other things (What will people think? Will I seem scattered? What about my brand?)
If you’re lost about how your business will continue to thrive after you inject other things…
You are not alone.
We (Kim + Tara) are with you. Kim built a career around editing and crochet, then she quit her job and sold her business. She was certain people would hate her, or at least lose respect for her, but the opposite was true. Now she edits, writes, teaches workshops, speaks and makes videos about creativity in general (and sometimes about crochet), and she doesn’t bite her tongue anymore when she wants to talk about science or books or how she watched the whole first season of The Newsroom one Saturday when she had the house to herself. Tara was a full-time yarn-maker who pored over business books on the weekends, until she flipped it all on its head. Now she writes and teaches for makers during the day and makes yarn on the weekends. Embracing these other, sometimes random, passions was scary. And lonely. In a world where we were known for One Thing, it’s terrifying to (publicly) try something else.
This is something we (we, the creative community) don't talk about enough, the idea that you can express your multitudes and be successful. That you can embrace all those sides, facets, interests and build a business around the cohesive you.
Well, we're talking about it now.
This Wednesday, at 11am PST (2pm EST), we’ll share what we’ve learned and we’ll answer the questions you have about it.
In this one hour class, we'll cover:
- How to know it’s time to move beyond doing or being just one thing
- What to do to prepare to introduce your multitudes into your business
- Several possible ways to handle the transition
- Ways to make sure you keep wiggle room in all new projects
What's included, for $25
- Access to live video workshop, on Wednesday, September 26th, at 11am PST.
- Recording of workshop (even if you can't make it live, you'll get the whole video!)
- Workbook, including a written summary + worksheets so you can apply what you learned to your own business.
- Answers to your specific questions
