I want to be my own boss and want to run a home-based business.
I can knit, I can cross-stitch. I am generally a pretty crafty person. The problem? Well, there are several, really. I don’t knit big projects like blankets fast enough to make it a reliable item to sell for income. I’m also not an “idea” person. I’m really good at re-creating other people’s patterns, but I can’t make up my own. That goes for cross-stitch as well. I was thinking over the weekend, I can give myself a year and see how many small-ish, easy to create projects I can come up with, and complete, by the fall of next year, and take it all to a craft fair type show thing. Other ideas, making cards from pictures I take.
I don’t know. But the more I work for “the man” and the more I think about kids and my life after I have them, trying to work from home appeals to me greatly. Probably because it was how I was raised – by a grandma who worked from home and had more time to spend with me.
Should I really try to do this? Or am I just not happy with where I am right now, work wise, and this seems like an easy out?
Things for me to ponder.
