Shared Messages from the Universe

It is my belief that messages from the universe speak to me and remind me of something that is inside of me. When I first see them, I often don't even know what is really being advertised. Instead, the message conjures emotions or thoughts relating to something that is going on within me; in my heart, in my mind, in my soul. I see them on billboards, in magazines, store windows, church plaques...everywhere. I secretly call them soul whispers.

The messages are all around us

These 3 little words made me grin when I walked past them the other day. You see, I like to plan, I like to know where I am going, what I am going to do...except when I am creating.

Don't get me wrong, I may still have a destination in mind or a plan of what I am creating but I do not step by step plan out what I am making.

So, to make a plan for my creative business seems a little overwhelming. To think about what I want to sell, why I want to have a creative business, to whom I am going to sell and how I am going to make it all happen seems, honestly, well...overwhelming is an understatement. And, to try and do it all while I still have a more than full time day job - I just might be downright crazy.

But, that is what I am doing. Making a plan, figuring out the logistics...reviewing photos to see what I should offer as prints. What else besides prints can I make with my photos? If I was to offer an e-course (photography) what would it look like, what would the content be, how would I run...would anyone really take it?

Well, I am happy to say that I am making a plan. It may take me a few months to make the plan, to outline, write it out, figure out the logistics, figure out packaging, shipping, where to print.. And, yes, it is overwhelming.

But, I am also so excited. So, if you have something that really want to do...something that your heart and soul is being called to do...make a plan. Make it happen! The world deserves to share in your art and creativity!

  1. Good for you--sounds like a busy but exciting time! Great message :)

  2. Go you! I need a better plan than the one I came up with... have sold exactly zero prints. :) I'll probably take Liv's class on creative business. You?

  3. Seems like such a simple idea, huh? So why is it so very hard to do?

  4. WOOOO HOOOOO!! Yes, a plan!! Good for you!
    I suck at plans - obviously. I jump in with both feet and THEN start thinking "geeee, maybe i should have given this more thought"... :-)
    I'm rooting for you here Lori. I KNOW you're gonna do great. xoxo

  5. I'm so excited for you Lori. And can't wait to see what develops from this upcoming plan of yours. I'm sure it will be amazing!! xx
