Many creative entrepreneurs struggle with this, especially when we are the makers, the marketers, the bookkeepers, the managers, everything all by ourselves in our business endeavors. I know I certainly have!
I’ve also been extremely fortunate to meet and learn from some incredible professional artists and artisans over the years, and in the last two years with the re-birth of my own business, I’ve met some amazing jewelry makers and designers from all over the world who have become an amazing virtual support system.
Even if they don’t know it they have inspired and lifted me up when I felt like I might be in over my head. Their personal encouragement and knowledge has kept me upbeat and focused on my business goals.
I mean really, restarting my biz at age 49, what was I thinking?
I was thinking this:
I love making jewelry that celebrates life and captures the true essence of who you are.
I love creating art that reaches you on a soulful level.
And, I love connecting with people, my clients, my students and other creative entrepreneurs.
To celebrate being back in business for almost three years in November and honoring the amazing ladies who keep each other focused, I’ve invited them to a private four day retreat weekend at the end of July. I was able to meet many of them in NYC last September at an event hosted by Flourish & Thrive Academy. I knew then, when we met, we were immediate family, and this retreat was inevitable.
This invitational retreat will be somewhat structured with four mini round robin style jewelry workshops, yoga, hikes around the mountain, lots of good food and conversation and maybe a biz strategy session or two intertwined.
The goal is to inspire, create stronger connections, share ideas, learn from each other, relax and recharge our batteries as we enter the holiday season.
