Each bundle of yarn tells an individual story for the individual. It is my dream to spin that yarn. In this digital day and age it is a electrifying experience to actually make something. People need to be pushed into using their hands beyond their smart phones, to reach out to the entire world. So allow me to teach the world to give life to utility, taking one step at a time. On this path, I can not make a mistake.
By crocheting garments and stuffed animals known as amigurumi, I will make a name among my friends. Practicing my trade will leave each piece overflowing with sentimental value. When I have accumulated talent, stock, and proper documentation I will open a stall. Custom orders will be less frequent however, thanks to my friends, I will have insight into a person’s desires. Next i’ll teach myself the art of yarn making or “hand-spinning”. My budget for yarn will plummet and the gross income will increase. That is only good news.
The familiarity I build with customers will give me the power to open a franchise, albeit, a puny one. But have you any idea what that will become?: huge. 25% of each transaction at my crocheted goods store will be donated to a charity. My charity. I will delegate the charity because if I don’t lead my ambitions, who will? I must grab a skein or, bundle of yarn, and unravel my own potential.
