Well if only I knew…
Rome wasn’t built in a day, as I keep telling myself and starting out a studio has opened up a whole new world to me, not of design per se, but rather of google business, google search engines, blogs, websites, website hits and trying to get a name out there in what is a crowded market.
And thats not even mentioning the impact of Brexit….
The great news though, is that I love what I’m doing, or at least trying to do and am determined to succeed. And I guess thats the key ingredient in any start up. Determination to keep doing and make a success of what you love to do, rather than what you have to do.
But I have far from nothing to be grateful for. An upcoming show garden for the RHS and another on the horizon (watch this space…), my work featured in upcoming House Beautiful and Real Homes magazines and a real desire to create, undiminished after my first year.
If you’re thinking of going on the same journey and undertaking a radical career change, or are in the process, don’t hesitate to get in touch and we can chat about the trials and pitfalls. But most of all we’ll talk about the joy of creating.
