Handmade business can be lonely.
Even if we’re lucky enough to have a supportive family. An enthusiastic and affirming partner who believes in us. Friends who understand our dream.
Even IF we’re lucky enough to have all of the above, there’s still nothing quite like the camaraderie of those who are actually walking the same path as us.
They understand in a way no-one else really can. They GET our frustrations, our ah-ha moments, our successes – because they’re experiencing them, too.
I think this quote from Rumi sums it up.
By seeking those who understand us deeply, who will fan our flames, lift us up, push us forward – we can attain such heights that seemed almost inconceivable when we were dreaming alone.
