Starting your own business

8 02 2010

If things from me seem sporadic lately, it’s because I’m in the process of starting my own business as an artist blacksmith. I may have mentioned that I’m involved with blacksmithing, but lately I have decided to make the step into supporting myself with it. This is really exciting and also terrifying because previously, I wasn’t making any money with it at all. I’ve basically decided to bootstrap myself a business.

I’m lucky, the people I live with are letting me pay low rent; my parents are supportive, emotionally; and there’s another blacksmith in the area who is essentially a mentor. Over the next few months, and hey, maybe even years, I’ll try to write my thoughts on the process of building this business. I’ll be making decisions based on who I am and what I want to do, and I’ll tell you why I made them and if they work or not. Hopefully you will be able to learn something from my successes and failures, and in future endeavors it will help you!

I have a website, and I take commissions.

So awesome! I look forward to seeing your progress, and maybe as we both start to get more business in our respective fields, we’ll have more opportunities for awesome collaborative commissions…

You should hyperlink your website, you’ll get more hits! Also, I have a few simple design revisions/ideas for your website at some point.

Someday (soon) I’ll start posting on Conventioneers…
