The shift has to start somewhere!
This has become a major panic point in my life.
While some parts of the country are striving, others are failing. It has become a blame game. Accusations fly, that the government, that corporations, that someone, continues to rake it in, while we the little guys, are struggling to put food on the table.
I do not want to put my energy into this.
I want to raise my self out of the mire that could consume me. I want the world to know that I am here. I have a product, and a service to offer. That comes with a price; just like the cheese burger at your favorite fast food chain.
I am researching two completely different approaches, so that my business can grow into the self supporting role it needs to be. While both are concepts at this moment, I think I may be on to something. I have faith, I know that you have faith in me, I look forward to sharing with you, the plan of action in the next few days.
In the mean time, I am asking you to consider the time you spend online looking at patterns for crochet.
Do you look entirely at Free patterns?
Do you look, and discover a beautiful design, then seek a free version?
Do you buy the patterns you like?
Do you find yourself following a particular designer's work?
As an independent (not paid by anyone) designer (perhaps freelance would sound better, but that implies I have places to sell the finished product) I find it helpful to better know who I am reaching. Your comments will help me better provide for the needs of the audience I have.
You are in a special place. The ground floor as it were. We have up to go, the elevator is under construction.

I despise the need to push for sales, and yet it is really important that I can hear the creative voice over the growls of a hungry tummy.
Until next time
