Tests shots are great, cos they show you BBW bags in the background
So once again, the year has changed and we're starting anew, nerds!
But THIS YEAR, I'm starting pretty dang new by doing something really scary: letting go of something I'm known for and just putting MYSELF out there for the world to invest in.
The emotional baggage that came with moving onto selling only my original character designs and nerdtastic art has been unexpectedly roller coaster-like.
- "Will they like it?"
- "Sure, they'll like it."
- "Will they buy it?"
- "Sure, they'll buy it!"
- "Will they want more?"
- "Will they lose interest?"
- "Will they hate what I'm truly designing from my insides?"
I'm sure that everyone has this negative self-talk as an entrepreneur. It's natural that when you do something kinda scary (like all the amigurumi plush you've become known for since 2005!), you start to let those scary feelings creep in. After all, it's the quirky neurosis that gives us our loveable charm!
But I just need to remember that I don't need to let those feelings take me over.
So, in the spirit of making SURE that I make good with all of my big promises, I did a couple of videos on New Year's Eve on 2012.
This is the first of my promises to you:
I will always let you know what my plans are.
So now they we've gotten THAT out there, let's make sure our plans for the new year stick!
Here's to 2013, folks! Big plans, big hugs and big excitement!
