I want to learn from people that live their dreams and live their passions. I want to learn from someone who is real and honest about all aspects and facets of their business.
If I could job shadow anyone for a day it would be all of these lovely ladies who live their passions. Who opened an etsy shop and then a boutique. All these photographers who took a chance and started to shoot and capture life. All these artist whether abstract or fine that capture emotions in their artwork- love, beauty, sadness, color etc. All these people that I know through their blogs and etsy shops- I would shadow you! You inspire me to be brave and take that first step in opening my etsy shop! Thank you!
