It’s been a while (I know…so cliche), but it’s a super rainy day here in Houston. Like 100%-chance-of-rain kind of rainy day. I have an old stump that’s calling my name but the weather isn’t cooperating so I thought I would write.
The holidays were good to AIMM. I had my 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Etsy sales which was extra exciting! No small thanks to Etsy for featuring me as a Fresh Shop. Imagine my surprise when I opened up my daily email from Esty and saw my face and art staring back at me!
What a stupid quote they found though. Err, is that really written in my shop somewhere? Oh well…ha!
I have a pretty strong hunch that the feature had a lot to do with the amazing photos that Ashley and Jared took as well. Other Etsy sellers take note – it’s worth it to splurge on great photos if you stink at taking your own like I do.
Guys, I am so thankful. Although these couple of sales may not seem like much to others, it totally does to me! This means there are folks out there that value what I am doing and are actually willing to pay me for my work. How cool is that? Which brings me to my next topic…I don’t want to lose momentum.
But first let me tell you a story. Once upon a time, I had this amazing group of women – Alicia, Ashley, Christina and Linnea. I had just started Homespun and similarly, these ladies were on their own creative business adventures. Once a month we would meet to talk about our individual goals, struggles and areas where we could help each other. Man were we productive! I think these ladies know, but I absolutely cherish these talks/therapy sessions. Things change though. Babies are born, cross-country moves are made and businesses are shuttered.
But here I am, on another creative adventure with AIMM. As much as I wish I could put that group back together again it just isn’t possible. So I am on a search for a new mastermind group. I am looking for 2-3 ladies with creative businesses who need some accountability and encouragement like I do right now. Interested? Help me keep this momentum going and send me an email – briannalland[at]gmail.com so we can chat!
