Lean on Your Creativity
When you’re an artist first, business can be a challenge… at first.
Most designers go into business because they love the craft and want to share it with others. That’s what makes the Flourish & Thrive community great!
There are always challenges that come with running your own brand. If you’re not familiar with the ins and outs of sales, marketing, and e-commerce, you’re going to get overwhelmed fast.
But that doesn’t mean you’re doomed… once you get the hang of it, you’ll realize your creativity is actually your greatest strength in business.
Systematize for Growth
Scaling up is overwhelming – if you’re not prepared.
You may need to manage a team, share resources, and streamline your business. It might feel impossible if you're not prepared, but with the right systems in place, these things become a breeze!
It’s time to break your day-to-day tasks down into systems that can be implemented over and over again. That way you can spend more time doing what you love, and less time stressing over the small things.
Let Go of Fear
Transformation doesn’t happen overnight.
It might feel like a lot when you’re thinking about everything you need to do all at once. Take a deep breath. Take it slow.
I guarantee you it’s never too late to overcome burnout and reignite the spark you once had for your business.
You’ve got this! Now go out there and thrive.
