When was the last time you started something new?
Something so new, it really scared you?
Today we're going to be talking about how to smash the fear associated with starting a sewing small business with the wonderful Laura from Handmade Hub. Right now Laura's in the middle of a super fun world-trip, and while she's off scouting the world she's also working on the beginning of starting her own sewing small business. We chat about the scary stuff that comes along with the beginning, and what Laura is doing to work past it in hopes of achieving wonderful, wonderful things in the future.
I really applaud Laura's raw honesty in this episode. Speaking as a recovering perfectionist, it can be really hard to tell the world about something new you're working on in the very beginning. What if you fail? What if no one likes your idea? What if you don't follow through with what you said you would? What if you change your mind?
Laura smashed all these questions right out of the park by coming onto the show and sharing what life is looking like in the VERY BEGINNING stages of an idea. Her gumption is admirable, and I wish her the best of luck with her business.
Even if you're not starting a sewing small business tomorrow, this episode is filled with valuable life advice. It comes down to navigating the journey with courage in the face of fear, and the words that Laura has for us today can be applied to your life no matter what's in store for you.
And, if I haven't sold you on giving this episode a listen so far, just know that Laura has the loveliest New Zealand accent ever. So nice to listen to, guys. So nice.

Spool and Spindle is a local (to me) fabric store that just opened. We mentioned it in the episode because it has a similar concept to the "sewing lounge" Laura is looking to make!
Laura swears by The Brand Stylist.
She also loves the Owners Collective, too.
