Just For The Record
Just For The Record
The World is GLOBAL folks.
This week’s update is; my first painting SOLD internationally.
Out of the blue, I got an email and a wonderful surprise from a buyer.
South African woman in Canada sells her painting to a British man in Brunei.
Our degrees of separation are now only ever 1 click away from another person, ANYWHERE in the World.
How awesome is that?
On my FB post about the sale a comment from a fellow creative was, “ Excellent! Add international art sale to the record!”
“To the record” got me thinking.
JUST FOR THE RECORD I LOVE YOU
In hindsight I now realise; my entrepreneurial SPIRIT started as a little girl.
My first small creative business started in primary school making and selling chocolates.
(Thankfully my mother could cope with melted chocolate all over the kitchen).
I learned many things.
How to buy supplies.
How to transform it.
How to package.
How to clean up behind myself! (clean hands clean money)
And…how to SAVE in my piggy bank.
(money management skills for a little girl)
Save your money and buy what you want for yourself in the future.
Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day, birthdays and Christmas I made and sold chocolate (and started getting pre-orders).
People loved it and I loved making it.
Best selling chocolate was an LP record mold that said,
“Just for the Record I Love You”.
Who knew one chocolate mold and melty chocolate could teach a little girl so many valuable life skills?
I am definitely an advocate for teaching young children (especially girls) entrepreneurial skills, which also forms part of the work I’m now doing.
Coaching women in start-up business.
More than one international trauma-sensitive yoga teacher training student and private retreat client has started her small business in her own country.
How WONDERFUL is that?
If you want to work with me, I’m only ever 1 click away.
Have a lovely day
