You Deserve to Make Money Doing What You Love
Dear Fellow Creative Small Business Owner,
I know that running a business isn’t easy. It takes time, effort, and a lot of hard work. It’s a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows, of triumphs and setbacks. But through it all, there’s one thing that I want you to remember: you deserve to make money doing what you love.
Yes, you read that right. You deserve to be compensated for your time, your talent, and your expertise. You deserve to create a business that feels good, that aligns with your values and your vision, and that allows you to live the life you want.
I know that as creative people, we often struggle with the idea of making money from our art or our craft. We worry that charging for our work somehow diminishes its value, or that it makes us less authentic or less pure as artists. We feel guilty for wanting to turn our passion into a profitable business.
But here’s the thing: making money isn’t a dirty word. It’s a way of valuing your work and your worth. It’s a way of supporting yourself and your family. It’s a way of creating a sustainable business that can grow and thrive over time.
And making money isn’t just about the numbers. It’s about creating a business that feels good. It’s about doing work that you love, with people that you love, in a way that feels true to who you are. It’s about making a positive impact on the world, and leaving a legacy that you can be proud of.
So, my dear fellow creative small business owner, I want you to know that you are worthy of success. You are worthy of making money doing what you love. You are worthy of creating a business that feels good. Don’t be afraid to charge what you’re worth. Don’t be afraid to invest in yourself and your business. Don’t be afraid to pursue your dreams and create a life that feels authentic and meaningful.
You’ve got this. Keep creating, keep growing, and keep believing in yourself.
With love and admiration,
Hey you! I'm Tracy.
