How To Honor Your Creativity
In this month's Beauty Secret we talked about Honoring and being Loyal to our Creativity! Today I would like to expand on how we might HONOR our creativity.
Honoring our creations can be as simple as appreciating how our item looks, or it can be complex as loving our items even when it seems like no one else does.
It means to me that we charge fairly for our work and that we include in our prices our precious time, knowledge and talent. Tweaking our prices can and should acceptable to us. But under no circumstances should we de-value our creations just to make a dollar or to get people to buy from us instead of our competition.
Not that competition is a 'evil' thing. Healthy competition can gently nudge us to greater and better creativity. Un-healthy competition is when we let jealousy take over because it SEEMS that someone else is getting more business at the time.
I can not STRESS ENOUGH - that there is PLENTY to go around :) Really!!! Business like everything else comes in cycles. You just have to find that rhythm and learn the cycles and make them work for you!!
Honoring our creations ultimately means that we honor ourselves - because after all that is where all our creations come from.....our TRUE selves!!
Thanks for stopping by and here is to HONORING all everyone's creations!! :D
