Your Brilliance Factor…
You’re a Creative Force of Nature
Nothing can stop you from bringing your vision to life.
You design in your sleep and nothing makes you happier than when you’re coming up with ideas for new bling!
I’m Tracy Matthews!
Before we go any further, introductions are in order. I’m a visionary, jewelry designer, podcaster and mentor to designers.
I live my life for delicious food and wine, karaoke and a little world travel ...oh yeah and my 19 nieces and nephews (no joke)!
I’ve been a jewelry designer (and a creative force of nature) for over 25 years. I’m grateful to have sold millions of dollars worth of my own jewelry designs throughout my career.
It makes me happy to see others enjoying their natural talents.
I believe that success requires 3 things: the right mindset, confidence and taking little actions every day that make a big splash!
Here’s what other creators have done to grow and scale their jewelry business:
I want to tell you the story of a designer - her name is Jenny.
Jenny has always had a passion for fashion and personal style. Her ambition had no bounds so even though she didn’t have a business background, she just went for it and started a business.
She trusted her creativity to help guide the way when she had to make tough decisions or figure something out.
Because that creative force of nature she inherently owned became her biggest asset in business.
She was able to figure out anything and soon got paid a lot for her brilliant ideas that didn’t stop at just design.
As a creative force of nature, remember, your creativity will get you out of dodge anytime your in a jam (if you use it).
Be like Jenny! You’re resourceful and a great problem solver. Don’t doubt your mad skillz and remember to empower yourself: You’re a bad-ass creative.
It’s not like you can just think up ideas and wishful thinking makes them happen. While affirmations and vision boards are highly encouraged, its daily simple steps that build your company over the long term.
Next level for a creative force of nature is all about spending enough time being creative, taking action and delegating the stuff that drags you down.
How do you spend most of your time being creative?
Block days or large blocks of time for creativity. This requires discipline. Creativity is not just for design time, it’s for visioning, thinking, learning and ideation time.
Got a big sales goal, take time to think about how you’ll actually get there. The more creative your thought process, the better chance you’ll have of reaching the goal.
Create structure to take ownership of your vision:
Creatives can often get siderailed easily. Creating structure in our business and day allows you to spend more time in the “zone,” versus, wasting time figuring out what to do next.
Delegate creativity-sucking and low leveraged tasks:
As soon as you can, get those things off your plate that don’t require your time. Shipping, social scheduling, and bookkeeping are likely not your favorite things to do, so why torture yourself. Hire it out like a creative BOSS! Start with a virtual assistant or a college intern (and a professional bookkeeper).
Move faster with systems in place:
Leaving room for innovation is awesome. Reinventing the wheel is not awesome. Document recurring tasks, production systems on the bench, FAQs, email scripts, and anything you use over and over again so you can easily share this with others. Have templates and swipe and go files that you can tweak a bit to maximize your time. Your time is precious!
Upper limits be gone:
If you start comparing yourself to others, remember, there’s no one like you who can bring the exact same creative force of nature to the world. Keep your vibe high. Meditate often. Make a vision board full of scary dreams and goals. Keep moving in the right direction and in no time, you’ll be there.
