Friday Finds - a maker opportunity ...
Today someone went out of his way to help me at a garage when I had to puzzle over which car oil to buy thinking the car was about to blow up, plus I went on a self development taster course, that had been recommended by a friend. We were a small group but each of us helped the others by asking a set of questions to challenge our habitual thinking. I really enjoyed the feeling of helping people see things in a different way. We all have the power to do whatever we want and be the best we can be but must discover what that is for us. Someone else's success isn't likely to be our version of success, that's so important.
On the drive home I thought how nice it would be to find creative businesses who are tiny but successfully doing things their way and write about them; featuring one every Friday.
If this might be you you are welcome to read a bit more about it on my facebook page and enter a link to your business website there so I can look at it in my own time for consideration. I'll be choosing a wide variety of work that I like personally and the key thing should be that you are making your item/s yourself (or with a partner) or commissioning small runs of objects you design yourself (e.g. limited edition prints). You could be just starting out or well established but small and happy with that (in fact that is very interesting to me). For this particular feature you need to be earning from your work. I am not looking for large volume businesses but that doesn't mean you can't have ambitions of that of course!
It's late now and I need my bed but I will clarify my thoughts on criteria by amending this post once I've made my orders for tomorrows dispatch!
