I had a conversation with a new friend at work today, and it has left me feeling so… inspired.
She teaches full time and has two small children, and she also runs a really neat side business making clever baby products. I mean–seriously?? I find it hard to find the time to devote 30 minutes to write here some days, and yet I know some incredible women who somehow find the time to run these creative businesses from their homes.
And I think it’s awesome.
While I love the idea of actually creating something tangible, I know that my creative outlet is writing. While I’m sure I could learn the skills, I’ve never found the same joy that I do in writing anywhere else.
That being said, I think I’m pretty blessed to be surrounded by incredibly smart people who have worked hard to share their passions and talents and build them into a business. I love that handmade and homemade products are finding their way back into the main stream, and I try to shop that way when I can.
I had an idea today, and I am really, really excited about it.
I would love to spend a few days featuring some of the talented people I’ve met–either in real life or through my blog–and share their stories and businesses with you! They are all so different, and I hope that you’ll feel a tiny piece of the inspiration I feel after “meeting” them.
I think it’s so neat that I actually know people who took an idea and poured their hearts into it until it blossomed into a business.
So. It’s coming. I’ve already started contacting a few people, but I’m sure that there are so many that I don’t even know about yet! If you have created your own small business, or know someone who has, please contact me and let me know! I’m hoping to spend several days sharing them with you, and if they are willing, maybe find a few coupons or giveaways for you in the process. :)
Stay tuned, lovelies. Inspiration is coming.
