Weekly Inspiration For The Crochet Entrepreneur

Let’s Get Personal

Crocheting can be a great hobby. It is a skill that not everyone can be an expert at. Think about what you want to achieve by crocheting. 

Is it to fulfill a need for entertainment? Is this something to just pass the time of day? Or do you want it to bring you financial gain?

These are questions everyone should think about. Making the decision to turn your hobby into a business is a huge step.

Here is where it all gets personal. Before you start anything you should examine yourself.  Ask yourself this question. Do I have the skill and ability to run a business? What obstacles would prevent me from doing the things I want? Also, what are the steps I need to do to overcome my obstacles? What are my core values? Write a list of your wants and needs.

This starts to open your eyes to endless possibilities. It is alright to have big dreams. You have to dream big to get big results. By completing the process of examining yourself you begin to challenge yourself.

You get to know what you want from crocheting. In fact this can start you on a journey of discovery for the things you want in other areas of your life. 

Making the decision to turn your hobby into a business is only the first step of many.  Once you make the decision you can start to set goals. A goal is knowing what you want and when you want it. By developing written strategies and tactics that you follow starts you on your journey, without them you are just dreaming.

Creating Smart Goals is an excellent way to ensure that your dream becomes a reality.  They are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and have a time frame. Whether they are the steps you take to complete a project for a profit or steps to make a thank you gift for a friend. It is always your choice where you let crocheting take you.
