Today you have a substitute, makers! Oh, and yes, there will be homework. What's up! Nathan here. Filling in for Kelly for this week's Question of the Week in regards to describing our handmade businesses in three words.
There is just something special about the number three. It's actually buried in our subconscious. You probably didn't know that, did you? Think about it. Time is divided into three. We have the past, present, and future. It's the first perfect number of four. There is a pattern of three in the Bible, but I'm not here to talk about the conspiracy of the number three. I am here to share with you three words. Three words that best describe your business. Three words out of so many that can describe most of our handmade businesses. Now that I think about it, that's much less than the 140 characters Twitter allows.
Here are three words that describe my business:
Multifaceted: I like to think my business has many aspects and phases. If you've been following me since I was going by The Hands On Club (cringe), then you know I have made several changes to my style and approach to the handmade world. I like to think all that I have to offer showcases my abilities.
Integrity: At the end of the day, the principal stands for me. I like to think that when I interact with a customer I can be honest and wholesome with them. I want that to come across in my creations too. What they see is what they can expect. What I preach can and will be shown with my business practices. It's one thing to be satisfied, but when I know all is well, then I feel well too.
Minimal: They say there is no such thing as perfect, but I sometimes believe perfect is subjective. Minimalism is just the right amount. I never like to overdue it. As long as it's practical when it comes to design and fits with the identity of what my business stands for, then it's enough for me.
These three words are honestly three of many words that I can probably come up with. These are three words that stick with me in almost everything I do. That's why I chose them.
What would the Question of the Week be without reaching out to the community and asking other maker's to describe their handmade business in three words? We reached out to Tristan Seto of The Artrist Handmade, Emily Nugen of The Blue Mouse, Tia Oostenbrug of Strings and Things, and Sarah Jones of Renee Originals 1.
