You guys, I am so tired. I had an amazing and thoroughly exhausting experience last week participating in Tara Gentile’s “Build a Stand-Out Business” bootcamp at CreativeLive. And I spent the three weeks before that getting ready to be on a worldwide stage. Website overhaul, email marketing tune-up, social media planning, the whole nine. Plus I wrote a book about handmade gifts that’s set to launch April 3rd. I need a nap.

And so it begins!

 

I was so honored to be chosen to be in the studio for this incredible opportunity to learn how to make my business stand out in a pretty crowded marketplace. Did you know everyone makes jewelry? Maybe not quite everyone, but it sure feels that way sometimes. And that is ok. I prefer to operate with a mindset of abundance. Thanks to this course, I now have a system for getting my message out to the people who are waiting to hear it, so that’s pretty cool. There were more than a couple “Aha!” moments. In fact, I watched today’s module three times and gleaned something new each time.

I met an outstanding group of women. Many of us work from home, so connecting with like-minded individuals facing the same day-to-day challenges is quite lovely.

And one of my favorite parts was just being in San Francisco. There is such a pervasive creative vibe, it’s impossible for me not to be energized. Plus the weather was so perfect, I got to wear my hair down the whole time! That hardly ever happens at home!
