When was the last time you launched yourself with both feet into the scariest experience of your life? Are you glad you did?
As I write this post I’m about to launch myself into the stupidest, scariest adventure I’ve had for a very long time. I’m excited and terrified, but I know my business needs this – and so do I.
I’ve never taught big calligraphy workshops before. I’ve given presentations in marketing* but even these were to groups of no more than 30 people – not the 80+ class sizes I’ll be hosting in a day or two at The Handmade Fair.
*if you count uni presentations, these were extra scary for being in French / Italian… which scared me silly!
For me, it’s like strolling into the lion’s den. I know once I’m there I’ll love it – but talk about the unknown…
For my business, this is something I absolutely need to do. Everyone teaches, shares and mentors these days: photographers, bloggers, stationers – we’re all at it.
