If I could make a living doing one thing that I love I would make a living by making bracelets. By making bracelets I mean making safety pin beaded bracelets, friendship bracelets, and paracord bracelets. Making these bracelets is what I do when I need to relax and honestly I find it more relaxing than watching television. To start my business I would start selling bracelets at local craft fairs and gas stations, mainly just to get it out there that I make bracelets and I want to sell them. Then I would think about creating an Etsy account or something like that and ask the people who have purchased my bracelets in the past to advertise my account. I know that advertising is everything when starting a company, but I wouldn’t over advertise like big corporations do. My bracelets wouldn’t change the world because they are nothing special but it would change my world because I would feel like my craft means something to the world. And as a crafter not having people know that you exist or acknowledge your craft is sort of a painful thing. Crafters deserve more attention than they are recieving because what they do takes time and money and patients.
