I'm Lisa Jacobs of Marketing Creativity, and I am so excited to be here today because I think Meylah is such an innovative resource for creative businesses. I started my own creative business in 2010, called the Energy Shop. I fell in love with that spirited little spot as a creative outlet: I could express myself and do something I enjoyed all at once. Consequently, I fell in love with the artisan community. I quickly realized that creating with a sense of passion and purpose is something everyone did, every day.
The whole idea of a world fueled by creativity feels true to me. I believe each of us has something extraordinary to offer.
In fact, my motto is: Get Paid to Be You.
Once the Energy Shop was up and running, I started to consider the possibilities: what if I could build my own career? I’m a mother of four, and I wondered, what if I could always be present for my family, and chase my dreams too? What would it be like to create my own work-at-home business?
What would it be like to create your own work-at-home business?
I went for it, and I made 450 sales in my first three months of business. I went on to make more than 1,200 sales in the first year, and the Energy Shop has been growing steadily ever since. I started with $100 worth of supplies, and in just two years, I earned more than $60,000. It’s opened so many doors, and now my days are overflowing with passion and purpose. The biggest lesson I’ve learned along the way is that:
We all deserve more LIFE! in our life.
If you have a passion, a hobby, a storefront, or your own
marketplace, I encourage you to fall head over heels in love with it. Patiently accept the daily demands: you’re building your dream one brick at a time. Success is yours for the taking because ...
Somebody is out there, right now, just waiting to pay you to do what you love to do.
Each one of us is creating something out of nothing. Two years ago, I didn’t have a small business. I just had an idea. I invested my time, energy, and a little bit of money ... just as many of you did. It’s something to be proud of, whether you’re waiting for your first sale, or celebrating your first thousand sales. I wish you the best of luck in sharing your creative something with the rest of the world!
Thanks for allowing me to introduce myself, and I look forward to connecting with the Meylah community! Until next time and all the best~
