DAY 15 Embrace Online Business & DAY 16 Believe In Yourself

See for me the two are completely connected a the moment - I am trying to develop a sewing school and craft kinda of business.  Now days an online presence helps enormously -I can direct people to my blog to see my portfolio of work - host tutorials - you get the idea.

Thing is loads of people are doing this now and the trick is to believe in my self not listen to the doubt in my head and go forth - on top of trying to run a house and kids and get ready to go home to mum for 6 weeks in 2 weeks. arghhhhhhhhhhhh I feel overwhelmed and quite scared of the whole process.

You see I am surrounded by writers, costume designers and  many other enormously talented people - not to diminish my talents it is sometimes hard to believe in yourself when you are surrounded by what you consider greatness.

However, I am really trying this time to push it aside and move forth..........

okay I have to finish 3 quilts by Friday so I am off like a bucket of prawns in the Sydney summer sun


  1. Hey Ing,

    Oh the places you are [about] to go...in 6 weeks!
    What a wonderful thing to look forward to.
    Have I shared with you a quote that I use often

    "Anticipate the good, so that you may enjoy it more."

    I think this pertains all that is ready to happen in your life Ing, enjoy!

  2. Ing - there are so many talented people in the world and good for them; but what you do; what you create are objects of beauty. You should be so proud of the work you achieve and go forth and set up your online prescence. The best thing about the inner-net is that people can shop around and if they see something about your products; your site; you - they will stop and buy. Then they will add you to favourites and come back time and time again.

    But dont go mental about it now - think 6 weeks in the bosom of your family and save all the angst until the new year!

  3. thank you lovely wonderful delicious women - you are the wind beneath my quilts..........

  4. I know what you're saying. It's so easy to compare yourself to others and think you come up short - but believe me, they are all thinking the same thing when comparing themselves to you! xxx
