let’s connect :)

Happy Tuesday!

It’s human nature to gather and connect with each other. Whether in person, or electronically, be it personal or business in nature, we all have an inner desire to feel connected. There is something within us that understands that we can’t fulfill our biggest dreams and aspirations without each other. Support, guidance and collaboration are some of the most important aspects of success.

Here are three ways to make the connection:

1.     Is there someone you’ve admired that you’d like to meet up with? Reach out! A warm cup of coffee and some meaningful, win-win conversation is hard to turn down, even with how busy we all are.

2.     Research networking events and conferences that relate to what you’re looking to achieve. If you already know of on but have been on the fence about attending, just do it.

3.     Go the distance and host your own meet-up! One of my personal initiatives for this year is to bring together creative women who love what they do and do what they love…and make it happen.

Connecting with like-minded individuals is one sure-fire way to brainstorm and get feedback on anything and everything, thus making your efforts that much more likely to succeed. While this is possibly to achieve within the “online world,” it’s important to get out from behind the computer and actually connect with people face-to-face.

Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a great weekend.

I had the pleasure of speaking at The Makers Summit in Greenville, SC this weekend and meet so many makers (including some of you) and connect with other creative business owners. Were you there? All I can say is… WOW! The event was so well produced and curated — a perfect combination of inspiration, learning, making and celebration.

Are you ready to make it happen?

During my talk, I shared my top 10 strategies that I personally practice in both my personal and business life to make things happen. I look forward to hearing about your successes in the next 3 month during the #makeithappen challenge. I will announce the winner in May 2013.

For those of you who set an intention to sell to more retail stores this year, be sure to take advantage of the special offer that I shared at the conference. Since I believe in rewarding people who take action on their business, we are going to invite you to a special Q&A LIVE call next month with me (date TBD) if you sign up by this Friday, February 8th.

Here is to living your dream and creating the life you want in 2013!



p.s. This weekend was extra special because I got to finally visit my friend Barb from Knack Studios and be in HER hometown. (I shared about how we met in this post.) It was inspiring for me to walk into her gorgeous shop and see how much she has grown since I first met her in 2007. I am so proud of this gal and cherish our friendship! I can’t wait to go back to Greenville very soon…
