This month, since the launch of Market Yourself (my first book!), has been amazing. I've met, both in person and online, a whole new community of crafty business owners. Since there are so many new people around, I wanted to say hello properly:
If you're new here, I want to welcome you and tell you a bit more about what's going on and what you can expect
If you're not new here, I want to THANK you! Last week marked my birthday, my site's 2 year anniversary, and the Starship's one year anniversary. Without you reading and replying, none of this would have happened.
Whether you're new here or have been reading for over 2 years, I just wanted to share what it is that we* do here. 
*When I say “we”, I mean you and me. Here at Adventure HQ, it's just me and the pup, so “we” always means you+ me, the community of makers. 
  1. I write, talk and teach about discovering the wonders in your business. I'm not interested in finding the “right” way – only the way that's right for you, your goals and your people. Your biz, no matter how new or old, is an entire world, filled with a culture, a people (your buyers), and adventures. Although there are some business basics that we all use, you get to use it in your own way, to buildyour own kind of business, exactly as you want it. Exploring your business means doing experiments to see what will work (and what won't). There aren't easy answers, only exciting adventures.
  2. One-size-fits-all doesn't fit anyone.  The business you want is different from the business I want. And that means that we each have to find our own way.
  3. Finding your own way can be lonely, so we do it together. I share my stories here, and I try to turn them into helpful lessons to email you. You can share your stories on Facebook or (more privately) in the Starship.
  4. Comparison sucks. Compassion (especially for yourself) rules. Looking at what someone else has and trying to recreate it only leads to unhappiness, and it blocks you from seeing the amazingness that you really want, and the biz you can build. This is a hard thing to remember, so we talk about what that feels like, a lot.
If you're nodding along to all this, then yayYou're in the right place!
You can get mini-courses on exploring your business and invitations to tools and spaces to aid you in your explorations right here.
The best, most helpful tool/space I've created (and where I spend all my time!) is the Starship, and it closes tomorrow.*
If it is for you, be sure to sign up before it closes tomorrow.
If the Starship's not for you, check out the other tools and spaces for adventurerers (some of them free!)
*The Starship only opens once a month, so I can take the time to welcome everyone in one by one, and get them oriented before the next class begins. 
Oh, and one last thing: I answer any and all questions, so feel free to ask
Until next time, I'd love to hear what kind of business you're creating. What do you want to experience? What do you want to explore?
