Many of you may know that I have gone through some life changing experiences this year and as a result gave up my business as a chiropodist and moved 200 miles south to live near my family. I have found myself in the position of being unemployed and have to make a decision as to what to do next,
Today I was offered the opportunity of taking on a small studio/retail unit for a not totally unattainable price but need to decide whether to find employment and continue selling online/at craft fairs or take a risk and see if I can take my felting business to the next level.
I wondered if any of you lovely folk have got any advice for me - I know some of you have taken that leap of faith. I’m not expecting to make a million but if I could make a small profit I think I would be happy. Should I go for it or should I accept that crafting will never earn me a living and continue doing it on a part time basis and find a ‘proper’ job? Are there any grants I could apply for?
I am not very good at making decisions at the best of times so feel I need some level heads to advise me!
