“My favorite things often have a story behind them and are usually handmade or discovered at a flea market.” – Amy Sedaris
Around the age of twenty-four, I came to the conclusion that I wasn’t meant to work for others for the rest of my life. I didn’t know how I could become an entrepreneur, what I would sell, etc.. What I did know is I couldn’t spend the rest of my life making money for someone else, clocking in at a certain time, or being stifled by a certain wardrobe, among many other things. I never imagined that I’d create and sell a product made on my sewing machine! Having several friends, including Tasha, who’ve taken the entrepreneurial route in life, and none of them selling handmade goods; I think it’s interesting how varied our experiences have been. So, I thought I’d share some of the things I’ve learned, or have been reminded of as a handmade entrepreneur.
