Before I started Bonnie Bryant Creative, I had all sorts of excuses as to why I couldn’t be a creative business owner. I told myself that I’d need a trust fund or filthy rich spouse in order to make it work (having married for love instead of money, I had neither!). I told myself that all the creative business owners I admired must have SOMETHING that I didn’t, because they were making it work when I was sure I couldn’t.
The truth is, I was terrified - of not making enough money, of failing, of not being good enough. And to be a kickass business owner, you need to face your fears head on, PLAN on how you’re going to reach your goals, and IMPLEMENT those plans despite any setbacks. It’s like Dory says in “Finding Nemo” - just keep swimming.
