And that’s when I realized that I am the one who understands my pain the most. When we’re at our lowest lows and can meet ourselves there, sit with our sadness, and let ourselves feel seen, understood, and loved there - that’s when we become unstoppable. When you experience your own love, you experience the kind of love you give to others. And you realize, you have a powerful gift to give.
One of my goals for this year was to sign up for a craft show because I wanted to try something that was outside of my comfort zone. I knew that it would need a little more effort to reach out to new faces, but little did I know how much preparation a market requires beforehand!
I’ve had a few conversations within the past few months with entrepreneur friends - and what I found so surprising is that even those who I considered veterans in their field still go battle through imposter syndrome thoughts - that either they don’t believe they earned the position they are currently in, or that somehow the public will figure out they’re some sort of “fraud” or “phony”.
As I’ve shared more recently on our Instagram page, I’ve had this growing desire to share more about myself with this community. When first creating Maizēn, I held the belief that this space had to look professional to build credibility and establish itself as a brand. But the more our customers/ artist friends shared their meaningful experiences with their Maizēnpackages, the more a yearning from within grew to connect on a more personal level.
