    Hi guys 🙂 About a year ago,I came into a small windfall. I have a few interests/ideas. But honestly I’m terrified of creating/running my own business. I’ve always felt that unless I come up with this amazing one of a kind idea/invention,there’s no point in doing what hundreds of others do. I have a talent for art,I would love to create textile patterns. Spoonflower is a great platform I’d love to use. I love creating my own graphic designs,and then using my heat press to create shirts. I designed a logo for a shirt to be raffled for charity,about 30 people bid on it. It sold for $50. I adore children’s clothing and accessories,like bibs/bandanas. Also the same bandanas for babies, a lot of people have asked about them for their dogs. I can also embroider/monogram,which is popular especially here in the south. I have this crazy idea of building a partial room. Like two walls that creat a corner. And set it up as a nursery,and design the patterns for the sheets,curtains,changing table,etc. Sew it together myself. And each month,reveal a whole new look with things I’ve created. Maybe something like this would do well in a blog. I hope the corner room thing makes sense 😉 My last idea. My friend has three children,all under 5. She stays @ home with them and it’s very difficult to leave to get/do anything. So my thought was something along the lines of a delivery service. It’s midnight and you’re out of diapers and formula and your oldest needs cupcakes for school tmw. That’s where I’d come in. Kind of like post mates. We currently don’t have that here. But my issue,on Etsy for example,hundreds of others are making/selling the exact same things. I have so many great ideas and truly want to create for a living but this irrational fear that everyone else does it,why would mine be any more special is definitely putting a dent in my ambition. I know I’m all over the place. And I hope I don’t sound too silly with my ideas. I’m open to advice,criticism or anything you’d think is helpful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to read this. It took a lot of courage to post. ❤️ submitted by /u/CeeCeeLynn [link] [comments]
