creative business startup

My first creative business was born from a shopping need

Often business ideas are born from a situation of need. The need for change, or the need for more creativity and freedom. A niggle to do something else in life. And sometimes they are born because you live in a place where your shopping needs aren’t met 😂. This is a story about the time when I decided to start a vintage furniture shop in rural Scotland, with no experience of running a shop whatsoever. To go with Pippi Longstocking’s quote: ‘I have never done it before, so I think I can probably do it’. Right?

How to coach yourself back into the game

Today was a wonderful day. In fact, this week was a great week. However, in all honesty, I didn’t start out like that at all on Monday, as it was the first week of the children going back to school, and I felt I had to somehow jump straight back into my normal working routine. It was much harder than I thought. I had a head full of thoughts, ideas, reminders, and – also – a nasty little voice inside my head telling me that I was failing, not organised, and that I should maybe just pack it all in. I felt chaotic and stressed, and I put a lot of pressure on myself! Then on top of that, I was at the end of my cycle, and rather low on energy. Time for some self coaching.
