While my shop is closed next month, I'm hoping to get the ball rolling on launching a new product and developing a new way of sharing my textile projects with a bigger audience (which is to say, bigger than my daughter and me, as we're the only ones who get to wear them so far). Making Ideas Happen by Scott Belsky assumes you have the ideas already (I do!) and just need the right nudge to execute them. Although it may sound a little dry, it's actually quite inspiring: concrete ways to change the way you work, especially for creatives. I am fairly left-brain driven for an artsy girl, always trying to work smarter, more efficiently. Frankly, I love to prioritize. But my real goal is to manage my time so that I have more time to create.
Have you read any helpful business books lately?
