With a vision to one day be able to stay at home with my family while still contributing financially, I started a small Etsy shop from a storage closet in college. As my small business grew and that dream came true, so did my passion for helping other women who shared the desire to work from home but still do something they love. So around here, you'll find resources and tools to help you steward your home and work well.
Have you ever wondered if you could turn a passion project into something that turned a profit?
In one of my first podcast episodes, I chatted about how my entire business journey simply began because I enjoyed the art of hand-lettering and needed a hobby. Yep, that was it. I picked up a paint pen, a mug, and just began drawing. Not extremely well, mind you. But I kept at it nonetheless (check out more on that episode here).
So if you’re sitting on the other side of that screen and feeling a nudge in your stomach full of butterflies and excitement thinking of that passion-charged idea, this episode is for you, friend.
Listen in as I chat it up with best-selling author, Business Boutique host, and all-around sharp, business guru, Christy Wright, as we discuss everything from meeting a need in the marketplace to why your knowledge may be more valuable than you think, sis.
Christy brings to light the biggest missteps she sees in new business owners, what it means to create passive income, and the top money management tip for the everyday gal. So whether you plan to start a business or perhaps that’s not your path, you’ll find some GOLD in Christy’s words.
Personally, my journey started with mugs and paint pen. And let me tell you, it didn’t always make sense. But I continued to walk through doors of opportunity as they opened. I kept doing and moving. I’d try ‘this’ or dabble in ‘that.’ My journey certainly isn’t linear and I’m guessing yours isn’t either, sister.
So if you’re not exactly certain what that dream is of yours quite yet, you’re in good company. You’ll glean some practical advice and perhaps even a mindset shift from this episode.
And for those that do have more of a business direction, whether you have a heart for making a physical product or dream of creating digital content – you’ll have a new, go-to guide on how to start a business after tuning in.
If your passion keeps asking ‘Why not now?’ – this episode is for you, girlfriend.
