Where I’ve been
For the last few months I’ve been a member of the Crochetpreneur Business Academy (CBA). Since joining the CBA I have learned so much about myself. I’ve learned about the strengths that I wasn’t aware of, but most of my friends and family are. I also learned more about my weakness and how I can build on them so they can’t hold me back.
One of my weaknesses is that I’m not really great with staying on task. I have intentions of doing it but I always delay it until I forget about it completely. For example, we all start the new year off thinking were going to start going to the gym daily or were going to start a new diet and stick to it. By the first week in February you’ve already stopped going to the gym and the new diet doesn’t exist anymore. That was always me; UNTIL NOW!
Since learning that staying on task is a weakness I’ve looked for help within the CBA community. Guess what, most of the members are too. When set with a deadline we can accomplish any goal you put in front of us, but without it the task just falls to the side. We need someone to keep us accountable so we can stay on task.
I stepped up
One way I’ve grown from this weakness is that I’ve become the accountability team leader. Each Monday I ask all the members what their goals are for the week. I check in every few days to see how we’re staying on task. Sometimes life happens and things don’t get done, but most of the time having a team member keep you accountable has really helped our businesses soar.
The CBA is by far the best group of crochet business owners you will meet. We are all each others cheerleaders. We are there to give you the small push that you need so you can move forward within your business. We are also there to catch you when you fall or struggle.
Here I Am
So here I am the third week of 2020 and I have already accomplished so much. I wouldn’t be here thinking I was 100% capable of what I have planned for the year without the support of my family, especially my husband, friends, and my crochet family.
As you can see; I’ve officially become a business with the city, started a blog, released my first design, opened an Etsy shop, opened a designer page on Ravelry, and the best part, I’m just getting started!
