(This is my idea notebook. It helps me to write everything down.)
I recently made some big decisions for my business. These decisions weren't spontaneous, but I also didn't agonize over them for weeks either. It was more of a necessity, and a gut feeling that got the ball rolling.
I'm pretty new to the indie business world, so I turned to my awesome online maker communities for support and advice. I knew I wasn't the first to experience burn out, stress, and time management issues so I threw my concerns and ideas out into the forums. It's nice to know you aren't alone and sometimes just talking it out helps to make the path more clear. I also usually talk to my sister about most things because she has a business/marketing degree, plus she's brutally honest (which I appreciate).
If you can't find proper support in your personal life, I would definitely recommend joining an online community or two. You can join communities based around parenting, small business, crafting, photography - find one where you can connect organically with people who have similar interests & passions, people who will be facing familiar troubles and celebrating similar milestones. I am a member of Oh My Handmade and a few other communities. The wealth of knowledge, friendships, and support I've gained from these communities has been monumental for my business!
